Allah is more kind to His servants than a woman is to her child

‘Umar ibn al-Khattab (radhiAllaahu ‘anhu) reported that there were brought some prisoners to Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) amongst whom there was also a woman, who was searching (for someone) and when she found a child amongst the prisoners, she took hold of it, pressed it against her chest and provided it suck.

Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: Do you think this woman would ever afford to throw her child in the Fire? We said: By Allah, so far as it lies in her power, she would never throw the child in Fire. ‘

Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

{{ لَلَّهُ أَرْحَمُ بِعِبَادِهِ مِنْ هَذِهِ بِوَلَدِهَا }}

Allah is more kind to His servants than this woman is to her child.
