This research includes a collection of Hadiths (prophetic traditions) mentioned by Prophet Mohammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), in which he urged Muslims to deal kindly with the animals when Muslims use these animals for all purposes like riding, loading milking and even slaughtering them.
The researcher has also verified the authenticity, judged and explained all of these respective Hadiths in a wise way to show the greatness of Islam in dealing with animals; he was neither lengthy nor short. In fact, the greatness of Islam is clearly shown in dignifying these animals which, in turn, entails how Islam honors the humans and prioritize them in treatment and dignity.
