Reward of Mercy

Love for Allah’s creation and tenderness of heart were outstanding attributes of Hadrat Sufyaan Thauri (rahmatullah alayh). Once while walking in the market-place he saw a little wild bird suffeing in captivity in a cage. Overcome with pity, he purchased the bird and set it free.

The bird would daily visit the home of Hadrat Sufyaan Thauri (rahmatullah alayh). It would remain for some time staring at him. At times it would alight and settle on his body.

When the janaazah of Hadrat Sufyaan was being carried, this bird flew above and repeatedly settled on the janaazah chirping a sorrowful song. The sorrow of the bird brought grief to the people who were reduced to tears.

After Hadrat Sufyaan was buried, the bird repeatedly struck itself on the grave until a voice was heard from inside the qabr saying: “Allah Ta’ala has forgiven Sufyaan by virtue of the love he had for creation”
