My Lord! Increase me in knowledge

Being good to animals in Islam

Posted on: March 29, 2017


I was reading the chapter of good manners in the sahih bukhari collection when i came across these sayings of the Prophet.

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 38 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira
Allah’s Apostle said, “While a man was walking on a road. he became very thirsty. Then he came across a well, got down into it, drank (of its water) and then came out. Meanwhile he saw a dog panting and licking mud because of excessive thirst. The man said to himself “This dog is suffering from the same state of thirst as I did.” So he went down the well (again) and filled his shoe (with water) and held it in his mouth and watered the dog. Allah thanked him for that deed and forgave him.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals?” He said, “(Yes) There is a reward for serving any animate (living being).”

 

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 41 :
Narrated by Anas bin Malik
The Prophet said, “If any Muslim plants any plant and a human being or an animal eats of it, he will be rewarded as if he had given that much in charity.”
