Abu Sa`eed Al-Khudri said:

“A woman came to the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, only men have taken a share and benefitted from your speech, so appoint us a day to be able to benefit from you, where you come and teach us from what Allah has taught you.’ The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Gather on such-and-such day.’ So they gathered on that day, and the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, went to them and taught them from what Allah taught him, then he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘There is not a woman who is preceded in death by three of her children except that they will be a veil from the Fire for her.’ One of the women said: ‘And two…? So the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘And two, and two, and two.’”

Abu Hassaan (a Follower belonging to the generation succeeding the Companions) said:

“I said to Abu Hurayrah ‘Two of my sons passed away, so can you mention a narration to us from the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, which would soothe our hearts in the face of those that die among us?’ He said: ‘Yes, small children are the Da’aamees (little creatures who enter wherever they please) of Paradise. One of them will meet their father (or he said parents) and will take hold of his garment (or he said by his hand) just as I am holding to the edge of your garment, and would not let go of it (or he said will not stop) until Allah The Almighty enters that child and his father into Paradise.’

Abu Moosa Al-Ash`ari (a Companion) narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said:

“If the son of a slave of Allah dies, Allah Says to the angels, ‘Have you taken the soul of the son of My slave?’ They say, ‘Yes.’ Then Allah Says, ‘Have you taken the fruit of his heart (his offspring)?’ They say, ‘Yes.’ Allah Says, ‘What did My slave say (when you did so)?’ They say, ‘He thanked you, and said: ‘To Allah we belong, and unto Him we shall return.’ Then Allah will Say, ‘Build my slave a house in Paradise, and call it, the house of thankfulness (Hamd).’
