It gives a shock when I open my facebook and there unlimited posts about animal abuse and crazy silly videos of animals being used as props or either has a bait, it gives me shivers down my spine. It makes me so sick that I literally get upset and feel like puking. What I don’t understand is why cannot people just mind their own business? Is it really important to disturb the animal who is sitting at the corner of the road minding his own business, and do you really feel comfortable with the fact that you would simply honk on his head while is is trying to sleep? Seriously, does this all makes any sense to any of you? Because to me, it doesn’t at all.
There has been a video of a guy who has been using horns on sleeping dogs on the road. Now where this happened have no clue, but such a sick act is a sign of a coward. People who do not have the guts of facing the ones of their type can only attack those who cannot speak for themselves. But they forget that the nature is watching them and they will face their karma one day and that too in any form. This is totally ridiculous. Every day, there isn’t any case of hit and run accidents, children mistreating animals on the roads, strays are easily a bait of incidents or abuse or abandonment or even molestation (I hate to say this, but yes, this is a fact). I usually avoid bringing up sensitive topics, but since this has been going around so one has to talk about it. I think as a Nation, we need to stand up and speak for these animals, because they also deserve to live on this land with the same right as of Human. It is not us who needs to decide about anyone’s life, it is our Almighty who decides everything. We cannot let anyone harm his creation, neither we can demean any of his creation looks which unfortunately we do! Which is totally not acceptable, Humans have forgotten their purpose of life, they purpose of living each day, as what the Human in today’s world is doing is not what he was brought to do. Don’t you think that the strays live their lives on the roads without knowing what is their future. They don’t even have proper place to sleep or rest, we have no clue what and how they fetch food throughout the day and how they manage to survive the horrible traffic and rude behavior of Humans. If you think about it for a second, you would realize that it’s not easy. Animals are the easy target of any Human to harm because they cannot speak, they cannot ask for help neither can return the favor that you do to them, but they always say a prayer for the good that you do for them, no wonder our Almighty has given reward for every good deed we do with the animals.
It is mentioned in Sahih Bukhari hadith (3467) narrates: “Allah had once forgiven a prostitute. She passed by a dog panting near a well. Seeing that thirst had nearly killed him, she took off her shoe, tied it to her scarf, and drew up some water. Allah forgave her for that.”
So who are we to discriminate when our Lord has commanded and has given a special reward to do good with the Animals. It is HIS creation and we are the ones who are suppose to take care of each and every living and non living thing on this planet.
