Death of an Infant


Slms Some ppl say dat if a baby(Infant) passes away he takes his mother to Jannah is it true?? Wasalaam


Alaikum salaam

Yes, some traditions from the Ahlulbayt (s) do mention that a child who passes away during infancy will assist his parents on the day of Judgement to enter paradise and they will be joined together in Jannah.

However, this is in the situation where the parents have also put efforts to obey Allah (swt) and stay away from those things which have been prohibited, and they have been patient in this world in times of difficulties (such as loosing an infant). These parents will be greatly rewarded and joined with their infant in Paradise, God willing
