The Ameer of Ahl al-Sunnah’s Advice for Children
Do not oppress animals!
Uwais Yamin Attari Madani
The Ameer of Ahl al-Sunnah, Allama Muhammad Ilyas Qadiri دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ says:
One should not be cruel to animals. Be kind to them, as they turn to Allah if someone hurts them. There is no need to kill insects or catch butterflies and damage their wings. If the insect is not dangerous, you are not allowed to kill it! However, things that cause harm, like mosquitos, should be eradicated. May Allah Almighty save all of us from hurting humans, animals, and insects.
اٰمِیْن بِجَاہِ النَّبِیِّ الْاَمِیْن صلَّی ا لـلّٰـهُ علیه واٰلهٖ وسلَّم
Dear children! We have learned that animals should not be harmed. Some children let sacrificial animals, such as goats, sheep, rams, and cows, roam around, but when the animals do not move, they beat them and hurt them or pull their ropes firmly, which hurts them. Doing this sometimes causes the animal to fall, and they are likely to get hurt like this. Therefore, we should not do this. Be merciful to animals and take care of their food, drink, and other needs.
