Muezza (or Mu'izza) (Arabic: معزة) is said to have been the Islamic prophet Muhammad's favorite cat. The most famous story about Muezza recounts how the call to prayer was given, and as Muhammad went to put on one of his robes, he found his cat sleeping on one of the sleeves, and instead of disturbing the cat he cut off the sleeve and let him sleep. It has also been recorded that he used water that Muezza had drunk from for wudu.
Muslims are traditionally encouraged to regard cats as lovable and cherished creatures, and mistreating a cat (or any other animal) is seen as a severe sin in Islam.
Any authentic sources or story regarding this cat or any pet animals of prophet mohammad(sw)?
or can anybody translate some part from this arabic article, it would be nice.
jazakallah in advance.
