Hadith of the Day: God Loves You

A man once came to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) with a sheet of cloth and something in his hand. The man said: “I saw a group of trees and heard the sound of young birds. I took them and put them in my garment. Their mother then came and began to hover around my head. I showed (the chicks) to her, and she fell on them. I wrapped them (all) with my garment. They are now with me.”

The Prophet said to his companions: “Are you surprised at the affection of the mother for her young?. . .God is more affectionate to His servants than a mother to her young ones. Take (the chicks) back and put them where you found them.” Sunan of Abu Dawood
