However, not infrequently we encounter children who are treated rudely by their parents and even be abandoned.

As good Muslims who have become parents, we must not neglect children given by Allah SWT. When a married couple is blessed with a child, then that means Allah SWT have trusted them to be parents and are expected to be good parent for their children by caring for their children, taking care of and protecting their children, and educating their children according to Islam.

Giving children love is a duty to every parent, and treating children well should be done by every parent. Because with good treatments, the child will feel that he or she are loved and cared for. Treating a child well does not mean you should not scold him at all, it should be done but not exceeded.

Islam as a good and perfect religion always teaches its people to do affection things to anyone, including to their children. And kissing a child when a child is asleep is an expression of parental affection for their child, and it is allowed in Islam.

Rasulullah SAW kissed Al-Hasan bin Ali, and beside Rasulullah SAW there is Al-Aqro ‘bin Haabis At-Tamimiy sitting. Then Al-Aqro ‘said:

I have ten children, but none of them I have ever kissed.”

Then Rasulullah SAW looks at AL-Aqro ‘and say:

Whoever is not merciful will not be blessed.” (Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim)

And from Aisyah ra. also told:

Then came a bedouin arab to Rasulullah SAW then said,

Did you kiss the boys? We did not kiss them.”

Then Rasulullah SAW said,

“I can not do anything if Allah removes all mercy and affection from your heart.” (Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim)

From some of the above hadith, it can be concluded that kissing the child while they are sleeping as a form of parental affection to their son or daughter.

Parent also may not differ the treat to their children from one to another in terms of kissing children while sleeping, because the law discriminating children in Islam is clearly forbidden.

However, in giving a kiss to the child when sleeping we also have to see the age of the child, if his age is more than six years then it should not be done, because the child has started growing up and we fear the child will feel uncomfortable.

It makes the Companions amazed and they say:

O Messenger of Allah, you have prolonged your prostration, we think something has happened or the revelation has been revealed to you.

Then Rasulullah SAW. replied,

And narrated also in Islam, one day Rasulullah SAW. was preaching, then came Al-Hasan and Al-Husain who are still small, they come with a long dress so long as to make them stumble when walking so they fall down and get up.

Then Rasulullah SAW. get down from the pulpit and go back upstage by holding both, then he says: “All righteous Allah .

From some of the above hadith we can know that Rasulullah SAW. is so fond of the children that he did not want to hasten Al-Hasan who made him his mount to get down, and cut off his khutbah to help Al-Hasan and Al-Husain who stumbled to the point of falling awake.

From these stories, we can apply the story of Prophet Muhammad SAW in our lives, because by following his example has certainly not violate the existing rules on the source of Islamic law and the basis of Islamic law. (Read Ethical Values of Islam)
