Video: “In every living being there is reward”

Abu Hurairah –may Allah be pleased with him reported that the Prophet –peace be upon him- said, “While a person was traveling on a road he became very thirsty. He saw a well so he went down and drank some water. When he came out, he saw a dog panting and licking the ground because of thirst. The man said, “This dog seems to be as thirsty as I was.” So he went down the well, filled his shoe with water and held it by his mouth. He climbed back out of the well and then gave water to the dog. Allah appreciated his deed and forgave him. People said, “O Messenger of Allah, is there reward for us also in (treating) the wild animals.?” He said, “In every living being there is reward.” (Bukhari, Hadith 5663 and Muslim, Hadith 2244)
