For cat lovers and animal lovers and everyother person

The Prophet Muhammad
(SAW) was tender and kind towards cats. He appreciated cats. Muhammad’s (SAW) favorite
cat was called Muezza. There is a well known story regarding the Prophet Muhammad (s) and Muezza.
“When the call to prayers was heard, Muezza was asleep on one of the sleeves of the Prophet’s (SAW) robes. The Prophet (s) wanted to wear the robe to go to prayers.
Rather than disturb Muezza, Muhammad (SAW) cut off the sleeve to leave Muezza in peace. Prophet (s) then stroked the cat three
times, which, it is said, granted Muezza seven lives and the ability to land on his feet at all times (as you might know, cats have a
self-righting mechanism,a righting reflex, which is a complex series of movements when a cat falls and which protects the cat
from breaking her back).”

Islam teaches Muslims to treat cats well and that the cat is a creature to be cherished and loved.
Mistreating a cat is regarded as a severe sin in Islam.
