Know that gentleness towards the weak, the orphan and the young places in the heart: mercy, softness, compassion and (al-inaabah) turning repentantly to Allah The Mighty and Majestic with submission and eemaan. None attains this except the one who practises that (gentleness).

So it is a must for you to be merciful to the young, the orphan and the poor, in order for your heart to acquire compassion, tenderness and mercy. 

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Indeed those who Allah is merciful to from his slaves are the ones who are merciful to others.” (1)

We ask Allah to cover us and the Muslims with His Mercy and Grace, indeed He is Bountiful, the Generous One Abundant in Good.
