There are 2 lessons people have to learn from this story;

1. Parents have to understand that both the male child and female child are equal. They should stop the discrimination against the female child, they need to accept that the gender of a child doesn't really matter. Most parents are fond of treating their female kids as if they are nothing, they even go to the extent of maltreating their wives over her inability to produce a male child.

If Mr Abubakar did not pressurize his Wife into giving him a male child, she would not have gone as far as stealing another Woman's child.

2. Couples should also learn to be patient after marriage, they should understand that God is the only one that gives children. You don't have to maltreat your wife simply because she did not bear a male child.
