  1. Dogs

    Cats have a high status in Islam at least from what I've heard it's permissable to own cats as pets and they are free to walk into mosques? My question is why it's haram to have the most loyal pet and the best friend of man (dogs) as pets and why they are being treated badly in majority-muslim countries when it clearly doesn't say anything about it in the Qur'an and there are hadiths and verses in Qur'an where they are talked about in a good way: Verse 5:4 says "Lawful for you are all good things, and [the prey] that trained [hunting] dogs and falcons catch for you." Qur'an Verse 18:18 describes the Companions of the Cave, a group of saintly young men presented in the Qurʼan as exemplars of religion, sleeping with "their dog stretching out its forelegs at the threshold." Qur'an Islamic fatāwā, or rulings, enjoin that dogs be treated kindly or else be freed. The historian William Montgomery Watt states that Muhammad's kindness to animals was remarkable; he cites an instance of Muhammad, while traveling with his army to Mecca in 630 CE, posting sentries to ensure that a female dog and her newborn puppies were not disturbed.[36] On the other hand, in a tradition found in the Sunni hadith book al-Muwatta’, Muhammad is reported as saying that the company of dogs voids a portion of a Muslim's good deeds.[37] However, in "two separate narrations by Abu Hurayrah, the Prophet told his companions of the virtue of saving the life of a dog by giving it water and quenching its thirst. One story referred to a man who was blessed by Allah for giving water to a thirsty dog, the other was a prostitute who filled her shoe with water and gave it to a dog, who had its tongue rolling out from thirst. For this deed she was granted the ultimate reward, the eternal Paradise under which rivers flow, to live therein forever." Here some hadiths contradicts eachother and what does shia hadiths say about this?
  2. I believe that the Afterlife is not just for Humans and Jinn, but also for animals. Yes, your favourite pet cat that died will be brought back to life, and who knows, you may be reunited! I believe this for 2 reasons. Firstly, justice and mercy seem to require that animals be compensated for the suffering they endured on Earth. After all, many animals lived very difficult lives, full of pain and suffering. Secondly, a number of verses in the Qur'an seem to point to an Afterlife for animals. In the context of the end of the world, and the Day of Judgement, verse 81:5 says: و إذا الوحوش حشرت And when the wild animals are gathered together (hushirat) - Al-Takwir, 81:5 Allamah Tabataba'i in Al-Mizan says: و ظاهر الآية من حيث وقوعها في سياق الآيات الواصفة ليوم القيامة أن الوحوش محشورة كالإنسان، و يؤيده قوله تعالى: «و ما من دابة في الأرض و لا طائر يطير بجناحيه إلا أمم أمثالكم ما فرطنا في الكتاب من شيء ثم إلى ربهم يحشرون»: الأنعام: 38. The apparent meaning of this verse based on the place of its occurrence, and the context of verses describing the events of The Day of Judgement, is that the wild animals are also (brought back to life and) gathered (mah-shoora) just like human beings. This is supported by the verse: There is not an animal that walks upon the Earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, except that they form communities like your own; We have neglected nothing in the Book. Then to their Lord shall they be gathered (yuh-sharoon) - Al-An'am, 6:38. (Tafsir Al-Mizan, chapter on Surah Al-Takwir)
  3. Do you think it is Haram to bring back an Extinct Animal such as the wolly mammoth which is looking to be more of a possibility. Have our Ayatollah's discussed such a topic? DNA of a Wolly Mammoth has already been merged with an Elephants: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/11488404/Woolly-mammoth-could-roam-again-as-extinct-DNA-merged-with-elephant.html Could we use this method to save the different species of soon to be extinct animals.
  4. Salaam Alaykum, Thanks for reading this post. I was wondering if there is a hadith regarding the taking care and planting of trees (even a hadith against cutting trees) ? Also, if there is a hadith on how we should treat animals. I have heard something before, but I am not sure about the exact hadith. Any help would be much appreciated. Ma'salaam

O the Unique! O the Singular who is independent, absolute When a roller cries he says: O my Lord! Set me free from the fire of Hell When a lark chirps he says: O my Lord! Forgive every sin of the sinners When a warshan (a bird) cries he says: If You would not forgive me I will be unfortunate When a ray (a fish) mutes he says: There is no power except Allah's who is ever exalted and ever majestic When an ostrich cries she says: There is no lord except Allah deserving to be worshiped When a swift chirps she recites the chapter of al- Hamd and then she says: O acceptor of the repentance from those who repent, O Lord!

O Dominant! O Loftiest in Pride! O Lord! When a camel cries he says: Glory to one who humiliates the proud ones When a horse neighs he says: Glory to our Lord Who is Glorious When a wolf howls, cries he says: Whoever Allah protects, he will never be ruined When a jackal howls he says: Condemned is one who persists upon his wrongdoing When a dog barks he says: Disobedience to Allah is sufficient for disgrace When a rabbit cries he says: Don't destroy me O my Lord!

When a scorpion cries he says: The most evil thing is loneliness al- Husain (as) mentioned that Allah has not created anything but it has its own glorification by which he praises his Lord. At that time Imam recited this Qur'anic verse al-Qur'an - Chapter 17, Verse 44). There isn't anything, which is not glorifying His praise, but you do not have a perception of it . Ref : Narrated in 64th volume of Biharul-Anwar by al-Majlisi (AR) from the book al-Kharaij (by Sayyid Hibatullah Rawandi) (wasalam)
  6. Is it permissible to spay a female cat? I checked sistani.org and couldn't find anything on it.
  7. Hindu Religion

    My friend and I where having a discussion about religion and we talked about his religion, Hinduism, he stated that animals have a right and you shouldn't eat them. Also its wrong for you to eat them because animals are created by God and they have a right to live. That's what Islam is missing, they don't give rights to animals. I told him God created animals for us to eat and get our nutrients and so animals wont get over populated and die off from starvation. Now, I want to bring up another rebuttal to strengthen my argument. If anyone want can help.. thanks
