            Mohammad came to the world as an urgent necessity.  The world badly lacked both justice and mercy. So, Mohammad is Allah’s mercy to all creatures, not just humans. Mohammad is a mercy for the believers, Muslims. Mohammad is a mercy for the non believers. Mohammad is a mercy for humans as well as jinn. Mohammad is a mercy for animals, plants and even the inanimate things. He cared for Muslims and was keen that they gained paradise and escaped the hellfire.  Mohammad wanted the non-believers to avoid the hellfire by believing in him, yet he didn’t force anyone to believe in him. Mohammad’s mercy is obvious in dealing with animals. He urged his followers to be gentle and kind to animals, by feeding them and providing them with water. He recommended sharpening one’s knife and resting the slaughtered animal before slaughtering it. On many occasions, he said that an animal complained to him that its owner exhausted it and prevented it from food and drink. In his tradition, we read that a woman got into the hellfire, because of a cat, which she had imprisoned, she neither fed it nor left it to hunt its food. Also an Israelite harlot got into paradise, as she had given a thirsty dog some water to drink. Finally, the log of a palm tree on which he used to stand preaching in the mosque as a minber moaned when the prophet had a new minber made in the mosque, abandoning that log. The log became quiet only after the prophet hugged it.

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
