'Yes there is meritorious reward for kindness to
every living creature'."
The Holy Prophet once passed by a camel who was so emaciated
that his belly had shrunk to his back. He said to the owner
of the camel 'Fear God in these dumb animals and ride them only when they are fit to be ridden, free them from work while
they are still in good health.'
'Whoever is kind to the lesser creatures is kind to himself'.
"There is not an animal on the earth nor a flying creature flying
on two sings but they are peoples like unto you." Koran surah 6 verse 38
"but to hunt ... is forbidden you, so long as ye are on the
pilgrimage. Be mindful of your duty to Allah, unto Whom you will all be gathered."
Koran surah 5 verse 96
"The Prophet told his companions of a woman who would be sent to hell for having locked up a cat, not feeding her, not even
releasing her so that he could feed herself"
"The Prophet told his companions of a serf who was blessed by Allah for saving the life of a dog by giving him water to drink and
quenching his thirst.
The Prophet was asked if acts of charity to animals were regarded
by God. He replied: "Yes there is a reward for acts of charity to every beast alive."
The Prophet was seen wiping the face of his horse with his gown (jullabiyah). When asked why he was doing that, he replied:
"Last night I had a reprimand from Allah regarding my horse for having neglected him."
(Elsewhere Mohammed is recorded as having seen a cat
sleeping on his cloak. He cut away only that part of the cloak
the cat was not on for himself.
