Cute Stuff at Eid Prayer

I was at Eid prayer and I saw this. It was very cute.

This little kid held on to his dad while he was in prayer, and just wouldn't let go!

And, instead of putting his hands on his chest, the father put them back to hold his son because he didn't want the child to fall.

It reminded me of the instance when the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was praying and his grandson climbed onto his back, so the prophet prolonged the sujood (where you're in full prostration, face on the ground, as above)...

"When he (the prophet) finished his prayer, some of the companions said, 'You lengthened your bow? 'Then the prophet (peace be upon him) answered, 'My grandson rode my back and I hate hastening him'."

That is exceptionally cute.

I've had my nephews crawl on top of me during salaah before, but I've never seen a child hanging on while the person praying is standing! That's amazing, and heartwarming in it's adherence to sunnah.

This makes up for this disturbing story.
