Imam asSuyooti (may Allah shower His mercy upon him) mentioned that there are 5
characteristics found in children; that if present in adults; would make them (the adults) saints.
The 5 special characteristics of children that adults should adopt are as follows:
1. They do not worry about their provisions (sustenance).
2. When sick; they do not complain about their Creator.
3. They eat their meals as a group (not alone).
4. When they are in fear; their eyes flow with tears.
5. When they quarrel; they rush to make peace.
