    Default Islam forbids False Accusations against Animals

    Islam forbids False Accusations against Animals

    Shaykh Uthaymeen said:

    This Kaba is the house of Allah, built by Ibrahim and his son Ismael. They raised the pillars of this house while saying:

    "Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us. Verily! You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knower."
    (Soorah Al-Baqarah 2:127)

    Abraha wanted to invade this house from the direction of Yemen so he prepared an army led by huge elephants. He wanted to destroy the Kaba, the house of Allah. When the army arrived close to the Kaba at a place called Al Mughmas the elephants became stubborn and refused to proceed forward, thus they scolded them in an effort to make them proceed towards the Kaba, but they refused. And when they faced the direction of Yemen the elephants began to walk at a fast hurried pace.

    When the Messenger of Allah was at the battle of Hudaybiyyah and his she-camel (named al-Qaswa) became stubborn and refused to move; the companions said: “al-Qaswa has become jaded, al-Qaswa has become jaded”. Meaning she became stubborn, and kneeled down without reason.

    The Messenger of Allah replied: “I swear by Allah, al-Qaswa has not become jaded and that is not from her character; rather she was prevented from moving by the One who prevented the elephants from moving.” And this is the Lord (Allah) the Glorified and Exalted. (Sunan Abi Dawud 2765)

    The Prophet defended an animal, because injustice is not appropriate even if the injustice is against an animal.

    to say something about someone that is not true is a false accusation. That is what the others were doing and the Prophet (S) defended the camel against those accusations.

    Kindness to Animals


    It is forbidden in Islam to treat an animal cruelly, or to kill it except as needed for food. The Prophet Muhammad often chastised his Companions who mistreated animals, and spoke to them about the need for mercy and kindness. Here are several examples of hadith which instruct Muslims about how to treat animals.

    Reward for mercy: It is related from Abu Umama that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Whoever is merciful even to a sparrow, Allah will be merciful to him on the Day of Judgment."

    Animals are like humans
    : “A good deed done to an animal is like a good deed done to a human being, while an act of cruelty to an animal is as bad as cruelty to a human being."

    Animals cannot speak up for themselves: It is related from Sahl ibn Al-Handhaliyya that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, once passed by a camel that was so emaciated that its back had almost reached its stomach. He said, "Fear Allah in these beasts who cannot speak." (Abu Dawud)

    Mental cruelty also forbidden
    : It is related from AbdulRahman bin Abdullah that a group of Companions were once on a journey with the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and he left them for a while. During his absence, they saw a bird with its two young, and they took the young ones from the nest. The mother bird was circling above in the air, beating its wings in grief, when the Prophet came back. He said, "Who has hurt the feelings of this bird by taking its young? Return them to her." (Muslim)

    Forgiveness of sins: It is related from Abu Hurayra, from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, that a prostitute once saw a dog on a very hot day going round and round a well, lolling its tongue because of its thirst. She drew some water for it using her shoe, and for this action all her sins were forgiven her. (Muslim)

    Mistreatment is a sin
    : It is related from Jabir that the Messenger of Allah, once saw a donkey which had been branded on its face and he said, "May Allah curse the one who branded it." (Muslim)

    Give rest to beasts of burden: It is related from Abu Hurayra that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Do not use the backs of your animals as chairs. Allah has made them subject to you, so that by them you can reach places that you would not otherwise be able to reach except with great fatigue." (Abu Dawud)

    Hunting/Sport

    In Islam, hunting for sport is prohibited. Muslims may only hunt as is needed to meet their requirements for food. This was common during the time of the Prophet Muhammad, and he condemned it at every opportunity:

    It is narrated from Ibn Umar that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, cursed those who used any living thing as a target. (Muslim)

    It is related from Ibn Abbas that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, forbade inciting animals to fight one another. (Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)

    It is related from Abu Al-Darda' that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, forbade eating mujaththama animals, that is, animals which have been tied up and shot with arrows. (Tirmidhi)

    Slaughter for Food

    Islamic dietary law allows Muslims to eat meat. Certain animals are not allowed to be used as food, and when slaughtering, several guidelines must be followed to minimize the animal's suffering. Muslims are to recognize that when slaughtering, one is taking a life only by the permission of Allah in order to meet the need for food.

    If Islam gives even animals these kind of rights and tells us to be kind and Merciful to them what about how we need to act towards other human-beings.

    No doubt about it that ISLAM has been sent as a Mercy to all living things.
