What happens to children who die? Where do they go? Here are some answers from the Hadith:


With the Prophets

The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam once narrated: ‘Last night two persons came to me (in a dream) and woke me up and said to me, Proceed! I set out with them … We proceeded and we reached a garden of deep green dense vegetation, having all sorts of spring colours. In the midst of the garden there was a very tall man and I could hardly see his head because of his great height, and around him there were children in such a large number as I have never seen.’ The two angels said to the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam: ‘The tall man whom you saw in the garden, is Ebrahim alaihis salaam and the children around him are those children who die with Al-Fitra (Islamic Faith).” Some Muslims asked the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam: “What about the children of pagans?” He replied, “And also the children of pagans.” (Bukhari)



Narrated by Khalid al-Absi: “A son of mine died and I felt intense grief over his loss. I said O Abu Hurayra, have you heard anything from the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam to cheer us regarding our dead?’ He replied, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam say, ‘Your children are roaming freely in the Garden’.” (Al-Adab Al-Mufrad)


Gone Ahead

‘The childless are those who have not sent any of their children ahead’ (i.e. none of their children have died). (Al-Adab Al-Mufrad)
