Allah Ta’ala had forgiven a prostitute because of her kindness to a dog.

Is this authentic?



Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration. The narration is therefore authentic.

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“A dog was going around a well, about to die of thirst when an immoral/loose woman from the Banu Israil saw it. She removed her sock, [filled water in it] and gave it to the dog. She was forgiven due to that”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3321, 3467 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2245 with slight variation in the wording)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
