Muhammad and the Cat
It was a very hot day. Muhammad sat
down in the shade of a date-palm tree and began
talking to his friends. He was wearing a long cloak
which covered the ground when he sat down. When he
went to stand up he noticed that a mother cat had
brought her kittens and placed them on the corner of
his cloak. The mother started to feed her kittens.
Muhammad looked at them and gave thanks to Allah
who created all living creatures. Then he asked for a
knife. Carefully, he cut around his cloak where the cat
and her kittens were lying and then without disturbing
them he walk quietly away.
