Hadith on Birth: Praise Allah whether the baby is a boy or girl

Kathir ibn ‘Ubayd reported: Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, if a child was born to anyone from her family, she would not ask if it was a boy or a girl. Aisha would say, “Was it created healthy?” If the answer was yes, she would say, “All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.”

عن كَثِيرَ بْنَ عُبَيْدٍ قَالَ كَانَتْ عَائِشَةُ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا إِذَا وُلِدَ فِيهِمْ مَوْلُودٌ يَعْنِي فِي أَهْلِهَا لَا تَسْأَلُ غُلَامًا وَلَا جَارِيَةً تَقُولُ خُلِقَ سَوِيًّا فَإِذَا قِيلَ نَعَمْ قَالَتِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
