Kindness to animal
One time my brother found a cat and he wanted to take care of it but we couldn't allow it in the house because we were afraid it might have something but we fed it milk and bread everyday. I felt so sad for the cat it was so strong it was walking through the snow, but in the summer we found it's body laying in our garage, the door was open and I was so sad that I blame myself, because I did'nt let it in the then he would've been alive is it my fault?
As-salamu `alaykum. I'm concerned about animal sacrifice. Do most animals suffer during this time or is it a quick and painless action to avoid the innocent creature less pain? I had heard that Muslims take pride in the pain of others (animals); surely this is not be true. Please clarify.
