Kindness and Conduct

“A man walking along a path felt very thirsty. Reaching a well he descended into it, drank his fill and came up. Then he saw a dog with its tongue hanging out, trying to lick up mud to quench its thirst. The man saw that the dog was feeling the same thirst as he had felt so he went down into the well again and filled his shoe with water and gave the dog a drink. God forgave his sins for this action.’ The Prophet was asked: ‘Messenger of God, are we rewarded for kindness towards animals?’ He said, ‘There is a reward for kindness to every living thing.”


  1. Does the kindness include slaughtering them?

  2. Abdullahi Alkali says:

    Allahu Akbar

  3. My dear The kindness means Slaughtering a ram or cow or goat or domestic animals! to save human life who was supposed to be sacrified for the Sake of Allah ( I am Refering you back to the Story of Abraham mention in the Bible and the Quran as well) who create both! Human and Aniamls!
    IN Islam there are some animals who are allowed to human to slaughter them for food purposes only!
    I think you should widen your horizon of view .
