Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (ra) narrated that once the Messenger of Allah ﷺ kissed Imam Hasan and al-Aqra bin Habis al-Tamimi was present there, so he said: “I have children and have not kissed a single one of them.” Hearing this Prophet Muhammed ﷺ said: “He who does not show mercy shall not receive mercy.” _(Bukhari & Muslim)_

2. In another hadith, Sayyida Aisha (ra), the holy Prophet’s noble wife narrated that a group of Bedouins came to see the holy Prophet ﷺ and asked if you kiss your children.” The sahaba replied “Yes”. The Bedouins said: “By Allah! As for us, we do not kiss our children.” Upon hearing this, Prophet Muhammed ﷺ said: “What can I do if Allah has removed mercy from your hearts?” _(Bukhari & Muslim)_
