Islam and Kindness to Animals

~Allah  loves those who are kind to animals.

There’s a hadith that narrates how a prostitute was forgiven her sins, simply for giving a dying dog some water~

(Volume 4 Book 54 Number 538, Narrated by Abu Huraira)

Additionally, the holy Quran also encourages Muslims  to be kind to animals and are forbidden to hurt them.

Once the Prophet Muhammad said: “A woman was punished because she imprisoned a cat until it died. On account of this, she was doomed to Hell. While she imprisoned it, she did not give the cat food or drink, nor did she free it to eat the insects of the earth.”

The Prophet was once asked, “Are we rewarded for kindness towards animals?

He said: There is a reward for kindness to every living animal or human.

Additionally, while taking the life of an animal for food, Muslims are commanded to do so in a manner that causes the least amount of fright and suffering possible.
