Video: Animal Friendship!

Allaah, All Merciful and Mighty, says:

“There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered.” 6:38

(41:34) (O Prophet), good and evil are not equal. Repel (evil) with that which is good, and you will see that he, between whom and you there was enmity, shall become as if he were a bosom friend (of yours).

“O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full Knowledge and is well-acquainted (with all things).” (Surah 49, Verse 13).

The Great Imam 

ash-Shafi’ei’s Poem:

We, Human being, blame and fault our world,

while the faults lie in our own selves.

The world is not at fault;

except that we are full of flaws.

We, Human being, make fun of the world for no reason,

But if others spoke about us,

We, Human being, were no better than bemocked at.

A wolf does not eat the flesh of another wolf,

But Human being, openly, eats the flesh of each other.

We, Human being, have worn the sheep’s clothing to deceive the people;

But woe unto the wild animal if it strays by us!

We, Human being, have reduced religion to mere show and formalities.

And thus, we deceive those who look at us
