Have Mercy on All Creations
You just NEED to be HUMAN to be MERCIFUL. Mercy to EVERY living and non living CREATURES, even to the BEASTS. That’s what ISLAM TEACHES. As a human being you should use your both DOMESTICATED and WILD ANIMALS well and within the CONFINES of the DIVINE LAW.
TILL your LAND with them mercifully, SLAUGHTER them for food mercifully, TREAT their ILLNESSES mercifully, take them for COMPETITIONS and HUNTING mercifully, and just be merciful to them. Any use CONTRARY to this is just CRIMINAL and uncalled for. Those who use CHICKEN and GOATS in place of a WIFE are just MORE BEASTLY than the beasts themselves.
Your MENTAL FACULTY makes you the MASTER but not in a place to MISUSE THEM. Remember they will all be LINED UP for the final RECOMPENSE TOO. Be the SOURCE of MERCY and INTEGRITY to all creatures and not the GENESIS of FILTH and CORRUPTION. The son of Abdullah, PROPHET MUHAMMAD ﷺ was RIGHT and still IS.
حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا زِيَادُ بْنُ مِخْرَاقٍ، عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ قُرَّةَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ قَالَ: قَالَ رَجُلٌ: يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، إِنِّي لَأَذْبَحُ الشَّاةَ فَأَرْحَمُهَا، أَوْ قَالَ: إِنِّي لَأَرْحَمُ الشَّاةَ أَنْ أَذْبَحَهَا، قَالَ: وَالشَّاةُ إِنْ رَحِمْتَهَا، رَحِمَكَ اللَّهُ مَرَّتَيْنِ.
Mu’awiya ibn Qurra reported that his father said, “A man said, ‘Messenger of Allah ﷻ, I was going to slaughter a sheep and then I felt sorry for it (or ‘sorry for the sheep I was going to slaughter’).’ He said twice, ‘Since you showed mercy to the sheep, Allah ﷻ will show mercy to you.'”
