On Daughters | Quranic Verses

When the news is brought to one of them of the birth of a female child,

his face darkens, and he is filled with inward grief!

With shame does he hide himself from his people,

because of the bad news he has had!

Shall he retain the child in contempt, or bury her in the dust?

Ah! What an evil choice they decide on.

(Qur’an 16: 58 – 59)

  1. A child is a blessing. Any child. Praise be to Allah and Muhammad (pbuh) for revealing this message to the world and putting an end to this tragedy. Salaam.
