Please share this valuable information that could save a child from brain damage or even dead. The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) taught his companions never hit the face or head of children or even adults. Many parents are not aware of the serious dangers linked with shaking a baby or young child. Abusive head trauma (AHT) can not only be caused by hitting the child on the head but also by shaking. Today there is a common problem across the world known as Abusive head trauma (AHT) that can be caused by direct blows to the head, dropping or throwing a child, or shaking a child.
