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.
