I would be happy with this:

Ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said:

“The pious offspring who casts a single look of affection at his parents receives a reward from Allah equal to the reward of an accepted Hajj.”

The people enquired: “O Prophet of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), if someone casts a hundred such glances of love and affection at his parents, what then?”

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Yes, indeed, even if one does so a hundred times a day, he will get a hundred fold reward. Allah is far greater than you imagine and is completely free from petty narrow mindedness.” [Sahih Muslim]


  1. Asalaam o alaikum S,
    This hadith is not exclusive of other ahadith on the parent children interactions.

    The two key words in this Hadith are: PIOUS OFFSPRING AND GLANCE OF AFFECTION. if both of these are fulfilled with Ikhlas (sincerity) they embody a huge arena of parent child interaction which is pleasing to Allah.

    No this is not the only hadith on parent child interaction, there are more and there are also many ayahs in the Quran, and yes the magnitude of the reward is mind boggling if the above two requisites are complied in full:).

    As these rewards are given in Sahih hadith , and Allah Subhanawataala reminds us in the Quran that the Rasool (pbuh) does not speak from his own desires but says to you what I (Subhanawataala) command him to say thus I I would take them to heart.
    Allah knows best!
