Daughters are a gift from the Almighty Allah, which is why there are several beautiful hadiths in Islam that guide us to celebrate daughters and shed light on the importance for caring for them.
The hadiths by the Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W.W) on taking care of daughters are beautiful because the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) had 4 daughters himself,; Umm Kulthūm, Ruqayyah, Zaynab, and Fāṭimah. Therefore, we are sharing some meaningful hadiths in Islam that also explain that considering daughters a shame and or burying them alive abuse and humiliation, which we should completely refrain from.
So, here are some hadiths in Islam that give us an insight into the rewards, joys and advantages of having and caring for daughters.

Whoever brings up two girls till they reach the age of puberty, he and I will come on the Day of Resurrection like this, and he joined his blessed fingers.
