Tonight we read about the childhood of the Prophet (s) in The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil.
My son wanted to know why the Quraysh people would send their children to the country. I explained that it was healthier and safer for them than being in the city. He asked how they could send their babies away and I explained that they wanted their babies to grow well.
My son asked if it was true that Muhammad (s) only nursed from the right side of Halima (r) and I said yes this was true because he wanted to leave the left side for Halima’s (r) baby daughter.
We also learned about the lion that Muhammad (s) encountered as a child and how he was unafraid and the angel cleaned the fear from his heart.
