Hadith on Girls: The Prophet is gentle with little girls in prayer

Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, would be praying and two young girls would come and stand in front of him near his head. The Prophet would direct them to the side, or he would gesture with his hand right or left.

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يُصَلِّي فَجَاءَتْ جَارِيَتَانِ حَتَّى قَامَتَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ عِنْدَ رَأْسِهِ فَنَحَّاهُمَا وَأَوْمَأَ بِيَدَيْهِ عَنْ يَمِينِهِ وَعَنْ يَسَارِهِ
