SUMMER CAMP

Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him), the servant of the Prophet, had another recollection: "I never saw anyone who was more compassionate towards children than Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him). His son Ibrahim was in the care of a nurse in the hills around Madinah. He would go there, and we would go with him, and he would enter the house, pick up his son and kiss him, then come back. (Muslim)
