Showing mercy to animals when slaughtering

Question

Is this authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever shows mercy to an animal when slaughtering, Allah Ta’ala will have mercy on him on the Day of Qiyamah”

 

Answer

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the narrators reliable. Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith in Al Adabul Mufrad with slight variation in the wording.

(Al Adabul Mufrad, Hadith: 381, Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 7913, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 4 pg. 33)

 

Also see: Al Adabul Mufrad, Hadith: 373 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 4 pg. 32-33 for similar Hadiths.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
