From the attributes of the righteous wife is that if Allaah blessed her with children then she should be just and fair between them just as he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,
اعدلوا بين أولادكم، اعدلوا بين أولادكم
“Be just between your children; be just between your children.”
This hadeeth is collected in the “Sunan” of Abu Dawud*, and there are many other ahadeeth that have the same meaning.
(no. 3544) from the narration of Nu’man Ibn Bashir, radiyallāhu ‘anhuma, and al-Albani declared it to be authentic in “As-Saheehah” (no. 1240).
