Even the Animals don’t like the Enemies of Ali ibne Abu Talib (AlahisSalam)

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

Abu Huraira narrates that we offered Fajr prayers under the leadership of the Holy Prophet (s) and after the prayers he turned to us and started talking to us.

An Ansari entered the Masjid and came to us and said:

Messenger of Allah! I was coming from home to offer Fajr prayers when a so and so Jew dog attacked me and tore my clothes and injured by calves because of which I was unable to pray with you.

The next day another companion complained about this same dog that attacked him and tore his clothes and injured his leg.
He said: It seems the Jew’s dog has gone mad and we should kill it.

The Messenger of Allah (a) went to the house of this Jew and we accompanied him. When we reached there, Anas knocked at the door and said: The Holy Prophet (s) is at your door.
The Jew immediately opened the door and said to the Prophet (s): O Abul Qasim, if you needed me, you should have summoned me. Why did you bother to come yourself?

The Prophet said, “Your dog has gone mad and has injured my two companions and you know that it is necessary to kill a mad dog.” So bring your dog here so that it can be eliminated.

The Jew went home. After a while, he brought the dog with a rope around its neck. When the dog saw Holy Prophet (s), Allah Almighty gave the dog the power to speak and it greeted the Messenger of Allah in Arabic and said, “O Messenger of Allah, why did you come here and why do you want to kill me?”

He said: You tore the clothes of some of my so and so companions and injured their shins and calves.

(Now this is interesting)

The dog said: Messenger of Allah! The persons you mentioned are both hypocrites and they are hostile to your cousin, Ali Ibne Abi Talib (a) and whenever passed from here, they used to talk ill of him. So I was infuriated and I attacked and injured them.

When the Holy Prophet heard this, he said to its owner: Treat him well.

When he started to return, the Jew fell on his feet and said: O Messenger of Allah, I’m not a dog. My dog calls you a messenger, so why should I deny you, from now onwards I am also a Muslim and I bear witness to the oneness of Allah, your prophethood and guardianship of your cousin. After that, the Jew became a Muslim along with his whole tribe.
