I was looking out of the window today and saw my cat, who was approaching somebody. Said person picked up a stone and threw it at her. She winced and came to the door; I let her in. There was a rather ugly and sad feeling in my heart and I felt like crying.
Why is it that we are without mercy towards the creatures of Allah Ta'aala? Where has the mercy fled to? Have we forgotten the following Hadeeth from Musnad Ahmad?
“Show mercy so that you may be shown mercy, forgive and Allah will forgive you.”
