⚘When we were on a journey with the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and he had gone to relieve himself, we saw a Hummarah with two young ones. We took the young ones. The Hummarah came and began to spread out its wings. Then the prophet (May peace be upon him) came and said: who has pained this young by the loss of her young? Give her young ones back to her. We also saw an ant-hill which we had burned.  he ask? Who has burned this? We replied: we have. He said: it is not fitting that anyone but the lord of the fire should punish with fire.qd

●Sahih (Al-Albani)

⚘We were with the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) in a journey when he drew apart (to relieve nature). In his absence, we saw a red bird that had two young ones with it. We caught them and the red mother bird came, beating the earth with its wings. In the meantime, the Prophet (ﷺ) returned and said, “Who has put this bird to distress on account of its young? Return them to her.” He (ﷺ) also noticed a mound of ants which we had burnt up. He asked, “Who has set fire to this?” We replied: “We have done so.” He (ﷺ) said, “None can chastise with fire except the Rubb of the fire.”

⚘Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Verily Allah has prescribed Ihsan (kindness) for everything.

Let one of you sharpen his knife and give ease to his animal (in order to reduce his pain).”
