“Let their mother be with them”

It is  narrated that a man once came to the Prophet, peace be upon him, with a bundle and said, “O Prophet, I passed through a wood and heard the chirping of the young of birds, and I took them and put them on my carpet and their mother came fluttering around my head”.

“Put them down”, said the noble Prophet, peace be upon him. And when he had put them down, the mother joined the young.

“Do you wonder at the affection of the mother towards her young?” asked the noble Prophet, peace be upon him.”I swear by Him Who has sent me, verily, Allah is more loving to His servants than the mother of these young birds. Return them to the place from where you took them, and let their mother be with them”. (Taken from ‘Islam, the natural way, by Abdul Wahid Hamid, page 228, MELS Publication)

Subhanallah! How kind and considerate was Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Contrast the above historical incident with what is happening in Israel-occupied-Palestine today. The brutal Israeli forces must hang their head in shame for mercilessly killing human beings – not birds! – separating hundreds of mothers from their children! If only they have shame!!!
