Hadith about importance of Mercy


Abu Hurairah (may ALLAH be please with him)┬ánarrated from the Prophet (peace be upon him) who said, “A woman was punished in Hell because of a cat, which she imprisoned until it died. ┬áIt was said to her, “You did not give it to eat or to drink when it was imprisoned, nor did you release it so that it might eat the vermin of the earth.”

Abu Hurairah (may ALLAH be please with him) said: Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “A person was walking on his way when he became extremely thirsty. He (suddenly) found a well, he got down into it to drink from it. Upon leaving it, he saw a panting dog eating dirt for its moisture. The man thought to himself: ‘This dog is extremely thirsty as I was,’ So he descended into the well, filled up his leather sock with water, and holding it in his mouth, climbed up and quenched the thirst of the dog. Allah held his action in high esteem and forgave him.” The companions asked: “Shall we be rewarded for showing kindness to the animals too?” He (peace be upon him) said: “A reward is given in connection for every moist living creature.”
