LESSON 03 P1 --- Kindness to Living Things


Dear Students: This site is developed for your help and guidance. We will appreciate your comments & feed back. Soon we will add other subjects to this site. Thanks

KINDNESS TO LIVING THINGS
.

Kindness is a great virtue. God is love and the best prayer to God is the love of His creation.
Kindness benefits both, the giver and the receiver. Kind words and kind deeds are a sure way of winning God's grace. The best and the easiest way of pleasing God is to serve mankind by wiping the tears of others in grief and sorrow. We can serve humanity through kind words of comfort, by feeding the hungry and cheering the depressed.
"Little deeds of kindness
Little deeds of love,
Make this earth an Eden,
Like the Heaven above"

All religions of the world have preached love and kindness to all living things. Kindness is not confined to human beings alone, but to all living things also. Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) warned people against cruelty to animals. He advised his people to treat them with kindness. Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) used to relate to his companions the instance of a Jewish woman. She was punished by God for starving her cat to death. Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) also used to relate another story of a woman who found a dog dying of thirst. She took off her shoe and lowered it into a nearby well and drew water from it. She gave it to the thirsty dog to drink. This good deed earned her God's forgiveness for all her previous sins.
Animal serve us in various ways. Horses, mules and donkeys are used for pulling carts on which things are transported from one place to another. Cows and goats give milk on which small children feed. We should be kind to animals, birds and even small insects, like a firefly or a bee.

Abdullah bin Masud (RA) relates, "While we were on a journey in the company of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) we saw two young doves sitting in a nest. We caught the young baby birds. When their mother returned to the nest she began to fly wildly round the nest". When Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) arrived at the spot and came to know the incident, he (SAWW) said, "if any one of you has caught the birds, he must release them at once to comfort the mother bird."

Abdullah bin Masud (RA) relates that on another occasion they placed some straw on an anthill and set fire to it. They wer cursed by Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW).
Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) said that animals should not be branded on the face as it is a very sensitive part of the body. If at all the animal is to be branded, it should be branded on its back.
A universal law has been introduced to stop the killing of animals or treating them cruelly. There is a "Word Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals". A universal law prevents killing and hunting of animals for personal hunt. This shows the concern of this society for preventing animals from the cruelty of man.

Adjectives:
There are three degrees of comparisons
The positive e.g. tall.
The comparative e.g. taller.
And the superlative e.g. tallest.
If an adjective has 'e' at the end we add r or st. e.g.
Large ................................. Larger ................................ Largest
Brave ................................. Braver ................................ Bravest
.
For adjectives of one or two syllables we add 'er' to make comparative or second degree and 'est' for making superlative of an adjective or third degree. e.g.
Tall Taller Tallest
Long .................................. Longer ................................. Longest
Small ................................. Smaller ................................ Smallest

There are a number of adjectives which are changed to comparative and superlative degrees as e.g.
Good .................................. Better ................................... Best
Much ................................. More ..................................... Most

Remember that we use the comparative degree to compare two things. e.g.
This is a better place than that one or which is the better of these two books?

The superlative degree is used for more than two things. We use 'the' before the superlative degree. e.g.
Islam is the best religion or
December is the coldest month.
