Abstract

A child is a young human being, a second offspring or
someone who is not yet 18 years old and not married. The
Qur'an itself speaks of children with at least seven terms,
namely walad, ibn, bintun, ghulām, dzurriyyah, shabiy and
thiflun. Each of these terms is explained in the book Tafsir
Khawāthir Ḥaula Al-Qur'ān Al-Karīm by Muhammad
Mutawallī Ash-Sya'rāwī. From the results of the research,
it is known that Ash-Shā'rāwī in his tafsir states that the
term walad means a child who is born and loved, both male
and female. Ibn means a son, either blood or adopted. Ibn
can also be used as a kunyah (title). The term bintun is
specifically used to refer to daughters. The term ghulām
tends to be interpreted as a teenager. The term dzurriyyah
has a broader meaning, including children, grandchildren
and their descendants. The term shabiy means a child who
is still young and has not reached puberty while the term
thiflun is used to refer to a child who is approaching
puberty.
