The kindness of Holy Prophet (PBUH) can be described in many ways. He preached love and kindness to all living things. He was of the view that kindness is not confined to human beings alone, but to all living things.

Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) warned people against cruelty to animals. He advises his people to treat them with kindness. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) used to relate to his companions the instance of a Jewish woman. She was punished by God for starving her cat to death. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) also used to relate another story of a woman who found a dog a dog dying of thirst. She took off her shoe and lowered it into a nearby well and drew water from it. She gave it to the thirsty dog to drink. This good deed earned her God's forgiveness for all her previous sins.

There is another instance from the life of Holy Prophet (PBUH). Abdullah Bin Masood (R.A.) relates, "While we were on a journey in the company of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) we saw two young doves sitting in a nest. We thought the young baby birds when there mother returned to the nest she began to fly wildly round the nest."

When Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) arrived at the spot and came to know of the incident. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) said, "If anyone of you has caught the bird he must release them at once to comfort the mother bird."

Abdullah bin Masood (R.A.) relates that on another occasion they placed some straw on an ant-hill and set fire to it. They were cursed by Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) said that animals should not be branded on the face as it is a very sensitive part of the body. If at all the animal is to be branded, it should be branded on its back.

These are some examples of kindness which we take from the life of Holy Prophet (PBUH). Being a Muslim we should also follow His love not only to human beings but all living things..

Kindness is a great virtue. Kind words and kind deeds are a sure way of winning God's grace. The best and easiest way of pleasing God is to serve mankind by wiping the tears of others in grief and sorrow. All religions of the world have preached love and kindness to all living things. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) warned people against cruelty to animals. He advised his people to treat them with kindness. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) used to relate to his companions the instance of a Jewish woman. She was punished by God for starving her cat to death. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) also used to relate another story of a woman who found a dog dying of thirst. She took off her shoe and lowered it into a nearby well and drew water from it. She gave it to the thirsty dog to drink. This good deed earned her God's forgiveness for all her previous sins.

Abdullah bin Masud (R.A) relates that they placed some straw on an anthill and set fire to it. They were cursed by Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) said that animals should not be branded on the face as it is a very sensitive part of the body. If at all the animal is to be branded, it should be branded on its back.

The Holy Prophet (SAW) also said, "God will not be kind to him who is not kind to others".

ok... how to treat animals is in the bible, got that...
Holy Prophet? we are referring to Jesus right? because He is the only Holy Prophet there was. for God said: "be holy as I am holy". meaning we are not holy to begin with, hence the word "be", [strive for]. and in the second part of His words, God says "as I am..." not as the prophets, preachers, priests, no... "as I am", as God is. and He gives us guidelines , notes, and principles, to follow to strive for this awesome thing, but does His word say, once you do all this, you will be holy? no... because it is an ongoing practice that only ends when we die. Holy prophet... Jesus!
that's probably why some dont like Christ, pride has snuck in and one figured, " i cannot compete with this man... let us derive from Him that "i" may be the best"... uhh... wow.....
this next comment is to clear something up... one of my co-workers, being Muslim, pointed out to me that according to the beliefs of Muhammad, that we as humans have a right to defend ourselves, even as little as someone only verbally abusing you. so hearing this, and hearing the above words, what this equation is saying is that animals (which have no soul) are greater as being loved, love having no end, meaning having no hate/dislike/distaste/self-gain, then we ourselves? also meaning that if an animal is attacking you, no matter in what fashion, you shouldn't harm it because of the moral law, of love toward animals...right? how much more to humans....

ok... ima start by saying... you don't have to win God's grace, its new every day. but to stay in his favor, one must live by His precepts... which some don't like because one doesn't like the anger of God, that does not like evil and sin; because it doesn't fit their lifestyle.
but that's not what this is about.....
