How to separate children in their beds

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
We hope that you can explain how to separate children in their beds, as is mentioned in the hadeeth of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Does it mean separating boys and girls, or separating boys from one another and girls from one another? Does it mean giving each of them a separate bed or should each one have a separate room?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

The hadeeth is general in meaning and includes both boys and girls. Separating means giving each boy and each girl a separate bed, even if they are in the same room, because one being with another in the same bed may be a means that leads to immorality. May Allaah help us all to do all that is good. End quote. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
