No doubt, Allah is Ever Merciful =)
Umar Ibn al-Khattab (ra) relates that some prisoners were brought before ALLAH's Messenger (saw) and amongst them was a woman who was frantically searching for someone in the crowd.
When she found a baby amongst the prisoners, she took it in her arms, cradled it next to her chest and suckled it. So ALLAH's Messenger (saw) said: "Do you think that this woman would ever throw her child into the fire?" We said: 'By ALLAH, Never!' So he said:
"ALLAH is more merciful to His believing servants than that mother could ever be to her child."
[Bukhari (10/426) & Muslim (18/80)]
