This is why we respect our elders, and protect our youngers. They are the softest at heart and need care the most.
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “He is not of us who does not have mercy on young children, nor honor the elderly”
Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-‘As: The Prophet said: Those who do not show mercy to our young ones and do not realize the right of our elders are not from us (Sunan Abu Dawud).
“Your Lord has commanded that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to your parents. If one or both of them reach old age with you, do not say to them a word of disrespect, or scold them, but say a generous word to them. And act humbly to them in mercy, and say, ‘My Lord, have mercy on them, since they cared for me when I was small.” (17: 23-24)
