CHASSIDISHE STORY ON THE PARSHA
ויולד נח שלשה בנים (נח ו:י)Noach had three sons
The Seforno writes, “When Noach began to give Mussar – rebuke to his generation, he merited to bear children.” He merited Hashem’s kindness when he helped others by trying to set them on the right path. We learn from this that in the merit of Chesed, one can beget children.
Rebbe Baruch of Zichlin zt’’l came to Rebbe Henoch of Alexander zt’l for Shabbos Parshas Noach and told the Rebbe that his son-in-law doesn’t have children.
Rebbe Henoch told him about the segulah of doing chesed. He added that Rashi writes, “עיקר תולדותיהן של צדיקים מעשים טובים” – tzaddikim have children in the merit of their מעשים טובים.
