One day the Messenger of God picked up his grandson and kissed him while al-Aqra’ ibn Habis at-Tamim was sitting by him. “I have ten children,” said al-Aqra’, “and I have never kissed any of them.” The Messenger of God cast a glance at him. “If someone shows no compassion to people,” he remarked, “God will show no compassion to him.” (Muslim 30:5737
