'Not a Bird that flies but He had informed us about it'(SUBHANALLAH!)
Bismillahir Rehmanir Raheem
Assalam Alaikum Wa Rehmath Ullahi Wa Barkatahu
Abu Dharr said:-
"Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) had left us in the following state: that there was not even a bird flapping its wings in the air without his having already imparted to us knowledge about it.
Then he said (peace be upon him): 'Nothing remains that brings you closer to Paradise or further from the Hellfire except that it has been explained to you'."
[al-Mu`jam al-Kabîr (2/155-156)] al-Khattabi (rah) explains the hadeeth as follows:-
Imam Ahmad and al-Tabarani narrated from Abu Dharr (r) who said:-
"When the Messenger of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) left us there was not a bird that flies but he had informed us about it."
Narrated by al-Tabarani in al-Kabir (2:155 #1647) with trustworthy narrators per al-Haythami (8:263-264), Ahmad, Abu Dawud al-Tayalisi, Ibn Sa`d in his Tabaqat (2:354), al-Bazzar in his Musnad (9:341 #3897), al-Tabari in his Tafsir (7:189) Ibn `Abd al-Barr in al-Isti`ab (4:1655), Ibn Hibban (1:267 #65 isnad sahih), and al-Daraqutni in his 'Ilal (6:290 #1148). Cf. al-Haythami, Mawarid al-Zam'an (p. 47). Also narrated from Abu al-Darda' by Abu Ya`la in his Musnad (9:46 #5109 isnad sahih).
*Note:Knowedge of birds taught by Holy Prophet
(sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) means he taught them slaughtering method and halal and haram about birds.
This certainly brought a lump to my throat
Humans think they are the only ones with a soul and the only ones who love, care, suffer loss and a lot of other stuff we are taught by our religion. Look at these pictures - you may never think this again .
Swallows: Here his mate is injured and the condition is fatal. She was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road.
Here he brought her food and attended to her with love and compassion.
He brought her food again but was shocked to find her dead. He tried to move her ... a rarely-seen effort for swallows!
Aware that his sweetheart is dead and will never come back to him again, He cries with adoring love..'SubhanAllah'.
He stood beside her, saddened of her death.
Finally aware she would never return to him, he Stood beside her body with sadness and sorrow.
Millions of people were touched after seeing these photos in
America and Europe and even India . Thephotographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France . All copies of that edition were sold out on the day these pictures were published. And many people think animals don't have a brain or feelings?
You have just witnessed Love and Sorrow... Felt by God's creatures.
My " Salaams" To You All.
