Be Kind To Animals

Animals are also a beautiful Creation of Almighty Allah. In Holy Quran Allah Rabbul Izzat speaks about various domestic and wild animals. Islam says to love and care for the animals and one who does this would be benefitted with great rewards. Animals are also living beings and they also have feelings of pain, pleasure and satisfaction like we humans. If we have domestic animals at home than we should make proper arrangements for their dwelling place and for feeding them with good qualitative food and water from time to time. We should not beat them nor keep them hungry or thirsty. Remember they do not have speaking voice like we humans. They may express their feelings by making typical sound or by the body movements. It is the person who keeps animals at home becomes his sole responsibility to look after the animal. Not to abuse, beat or torture any animal. On the contrary if we find any animal thirsty or hungry than we should make arrangements for him to satisfy his hunger and thirst. Think about them also they are also living beings and need two times food as we humans. We do not need to invest much money to feed them. They do not require delicious luxurious food and filtered mineral water like us, but even the leftover food will do so. Many domestic animals give frequent visits to some doors because they know that this is a house from where they would get little food to eat. Remember its great reward to care and feed the animals.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 40, Number 551:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "While a man was walking he felt thirsty and went down a well and drank water from it. On coming out of it, he saw a dog panting and eating mud because of excessive thirst. The man said, 'This (dog) is suffering from the same problem as that of mine. So he (went down the well), filled his shoe with water, caught hold of it with his teeth and climbed up and watered the dog. Allah thanked him for his (good) deed and forgave him." The people asked, "O Allah's Apostle! Is there a reward for us in serving (the) animals?" He replied, "Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate."
Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 67, Number 424:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:
The Prophet cursed the one who did Muthla to an animal (i.e., cut its limbs or some other part of its body while it is still alive).
May Allah Subahano Watala give us Hidayat to care and feed the animals Ameen
