Seeking the reward of Allah while nursing


baby-hands1

Amr ibn abdullah told his wife who was nursing his son:

“Do not let your nursing of your son be as the livestock nurse their offspring; done instinctively out of mercy for its young, rather nurse him seeking the reward of Allah, hoping that through your nursing shall live a creation, who believes in the Oneness of  Allah, and worships Him.” 

–Abu Amr Al Awzai

(Naseehat al Mulook by Al Maawardi, Page 166)
