Need Advice...re: Dead Cat

Recommended Posts

:D

 

SubhanALLAH...

 

only yesterday evening I saw a cat lying/resting outside my house and i thought it was quite odd...so I tried to call it but it walked away....

 

anyhow..today i was informed its lying dead-just 2mins away from my home...

 

so..Islamically...should i

 

1)bury the cat

2)leave it there for someone else to deal with

3)leave it there for the wild animals

4) or?

 

jazak Allah khairun

 

(i know it may seem there are more important things to deal with in life-but Islamically, i just want to know if I should bury the cat?)

 

:D

Assalamu Alaikum, If you know the owner of the cat inform them, if you think it is a stray cat, then the right thing to do will be to bury it.

 

You should not wait for others to do it, maybe everyone is thinking someone else will bury it. It is not healthy either to leave a dead cat lying around.

Assalamu Alaikum, umAhmad.

jazak Allah khairun for you're advice...

 

inshALLAH i will bury it-when i get the courage...inshALLAH..-soon

 

i just went to see it...and the cat is really hard.

 

The only way i can find out about its owners is, if i take it to the vets-and they will probably scan the chip and then burn the cat......so i better not?

 

will i be sinful if i leave it for a night? and consquently..it may not be there in the morning.

 

(sorry for making the issue seem really big)

Sister, just get your dad, brother, husband, cousin or other relative to do it for you. Just help him dig and all will be fine.

I think this is a very interesting subject.

 

I like it.

 

Is the cat on someones property or just in the street?

The cat is just on the street...

 

 

 

Astaghfirulla...i dont think im able to do anything...

 

Will i be sinful if i let the non-muslims take-it away? and consequently they may choose the easy option and burn it. Astaghfirulla.

Alsalam Alaikom,

 

Sister anything that we do with difficulty but is for Allah is jihad. so here is you opportunity, see it as such.

 

Do it in steps. you need the following: a piece of cloth, a plastic bag, and in the abscenec of a shovel you can use your kitchen cutlery.

 

Ask Allah's help and guidance

say bismiAllah

cover the cat with the cloth, just throw it on so you do not see it any more.

you can use the shovel if you have it or like a large frying spade to pick it up.

place in plastic bag (to carry)

go to burial spot

dig

empty plastic bag

cover the hole

throw plastic bad

go home and wash your hands happy that you gave the cat a burial and you did it for Allah.

 

May Allah be with you

As-slaam aliekom..

I was once in the same situation,I was just about to get home after a long day at uni whe there was a dead cat infrot of the doorstep...I was shocked, I told my mom that I'm going to take it away..some where that kids can not hurt it or play with the dead body.. when I went back to move it I couldnt do though, i triedthe two first steps of what Salwa mentioned, but I found myself crying (I'm a cats lover :D )..

So I asked my brother to do it..

Next time I'll try to do it, although I wouldn't like to see another dead cat..

May Allah give you blessings for such a kind and caring heart.

 

When I saw a bird dead in my backyard I burried it right away because if I died and someone found me, I wouldn't want to be just left there.

 

What I would suggest is to take off the metal tag from the cat, burry the cat, then take the tag to a vet to inform the owners. If they want the cat burried somewhere else, at least you can point them out where it is.

 

I hope Allah makes the situation easy for you insha'Allah :D
