Hadith 6: Take Care of Other Creatures


Hadith 6: Take Care of other Creatures

Sayyidina Anas and Abdullah ibn Masud related to us, that the Prophet said:

All the creatures are the Ayaal (family) of Allah. The more beloved of Allah, among His creatures, therefore, is the man who is good to His family, i.e., creatures.” [Baihaqi]

Commentary: Those who are dependent on a person of the necessities of life, like food and clothing, are called his Ayaal. In this way, all the created beings are the Ayaal of Allah. He is their Cherisher and Sustainer. The above Tradition, consequently, tells that whosoever shows kindness to the creatures of Allah will be deserving of His love.
