Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)
The children of the Believers who die before reaching the age of puberty will be in Paradise, insha’Allaah, by the will of Allaah. He (swt) says:
“And those who believe and whose offspring follow them in faith – to them shall We join their offspring, shall not decrease the reward of their deeds in anything. Every person is a pledge for that which he earned” [52:21]
‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib understood this aayah – “Every person is a pledge for what he has earned” [74:38]
children of the believers would be in Paradise, because they did not earn anything for which they would be considered [at-Tadkhirah, p. 511]
al-Bukhaari included a chapter in his Saheeh entitled “The virtue of one whose child dies and he bears it with patience sake of Allaah”, in which he quoted the hadith of Anas who said that, “A Muslim whose three children die before the age of puberty will be admitted to Paradise by Allaah out of Mercy towards them.”
According to a Hadith, “The Muslims and the children will be in Paradise”
(quoted by ‘Abdullaah ibn Ahmad in Ziyaadat al-Musnad)
“A Muslim couple whose three children die before reaching the age of puberty will be admitted by Allaah they and their children, by His Grace and Mercy” [Fath al-Baari, 2/245]
From Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah (saw) said: “Their little ones are the pageboys of Paradise. will meet his father – or his parents – and take hold of his clothes – or his hand – just as I am taking of your garment, and he will not let go” Or he said,” And he will not let go until Allaah admits him to Paradise.” [Silsilat al-Hadith as-Saheehah, 1/184, no. 342]
“The children of the believers will be in Paradise, being cared for by Ibraaheem and Sarah until they give them back to their parents on the Day of Resurrection”. [narrated by Abu Na’eem, ad-Daylami and Ibn ‘Asaakir from Silsilat al-Hadith as-Saheehah, 3/451 no. 1467; see also 2/156 no. 603 narrated by Ahmad, Ibn Hibbaan, al an-Nawawi referred to the ijmaa” of reliable Muslim scholars that any Muslim child who dies will be in Paradise. 3/244].
