Even, one day I looked at the cats;

all they were doing was eating, playing, and sleeping.

I wondered: how is it these little monsters which perform no duties are known as blessed. Later, I lay down to sleep for the night. I looked; one of the cats had come. It lay against my pillow and put its mouth against my ear, and murmuring: “O Most Compassionate One! O Most Compassionate One!“ in the most clear manner, as though refuted in the name of its species the objection and insult which had occurred to me, throwing it in my face. Then this occurred to me: I wonder if this recitation is particular to this cat, or is it general among cats? And is it only an unfair objector like me who hears it, or if anyone listens carefully, can they hear it? ” block_text_color=”#333333″ block_front_color=”#efefef” block_title_back=”The next morning I listened to the other cats; ” block_desc_back=”it was not so clearly, but to varying degrees they were repeating the same invocation. At first, “O Most Compassionate!“ was discernible following their purring. Then gradually their purrings and meaowings became the same “O Most Merciful!“ It became an unarticulated, eloquent and sorrowful recitation. They would close their mouths and utter a fine “O Most Compassionate!“
I related the story to the brothers who visited me, and they listened carefully as well, and said that they heard it to an extent. Later I wondered what this Name’s special feature was, and why they recite it in the way of men and not in animal tongue. Then it imparted to my heart that since these animals are very delicate and petted like children and are a friend of man, they are in much need of kindness and compassion. When they are stroked and paid attention to in the way they like, as praise and thanks for the bounty, and unlike dogs, they proclaim the mercy of their All-Compassionate Creator in their own worlds. They warn men in the sleep of heedlessness, and through their cry of “O Most Compassionate!“, they remind those who worship causes Who it is that help comes from and from Whom mercy may be awaited.” block_back_text_color=”#333333″ block_back_color=”#efefef” button_link=”Icon Block” button_text=”Buy One Now!” button_bg=”#333333″ button_txt=”#FFFFFF” flip_type=”horizontal_flip_left” height_type=”auto” box_height=”300″]
