    Do pets go to Heaven?

    Report bad ads?

    Do pets go to Heaven and are we reunited with our pets there? I am asking because animals show love, affection, hatred and other emotions, so clearly they have souls. Do they go to Heaven or Hell, and based on what are they judged?

    Re: Do pets go to Heaven?

    All animals in this world after they get their justice in the afterlife will turn into dust. Poof. They become dust. That is where the disbelievers (non-Muslim) will see the animals turn into dust and wished they where dusts too when they see hellfire in front of them. There will be certain animals in paradise grazing for the purpose of consumption, though.

    Re: Do pets go to Heaven?

    Why will all animals turn into dust? Also, why will heaven have animals for consumption? That means even Heaven will have animal slaughter and their they will suffer a horrible and painful death to be eaten by human beings?

    Re: Do pets go to Heaven?

    Animals that are consumed in heaven are different than how we consume them here. In paradise, you see a bird you want to consume it will come down to you to be consumed and it taste delicious, once you are done the bird returns back and fly off again (no suffering at all or even slaughtered). The rules in paradise are different than here. Here for example, a woman goes through minstrel cycle and she delivers babies. In paradise there are no children. No women get pregnant in paradise and there is no minstrel cycle where you bleed. For men in paradise there is no sperm or ejaculation. You cannot have children or become parents there, so sex there is for pleasure purpose alone. You don't need food or water to survive in paradise. You eat and drink for the sole purpose of pleasure alone. You don't age in paradise. You can never get bored there. There is no jealousy in paradise. You don't even fart there. The most beautiful smell comes from the pore of your skin. In paradise death is forbidden. Also sleep is forbidden in paradise.

    You are looking at it from this world's perspective. Paradise is a place that you cannot imagine and describing it here does not give it justice for what it really is there. Animals don't suffer there. Animals are suffered here because non-Muslims torture them in killing them. You don't kill there. You see an animal, you wish to eat it..it comes to you prepared for eating and the animal return back grazing or flying again. You cannot do that here in this world, can you? As for why animals turn to dust, it is not for you or me to question Allah. It is his kingdom, he does what he wishes. We are all his slaves, even the animals are his slaves and we are all his property, even the animals.

    Then can you please clarify how things are in Heaven? Do all animals really turn to dust no matter how good they are?

    Re: Do pets go to Heaven?

    https://islamqa.info/en/answers/1143...f-resurrection

    This question is in two parts:
    1 – what is the fate of animals in the Hereafter? Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
    “And when the wild beasts shall be gathered together”
    [al-Takweer 81:5]
    “There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered”
    [al-An’aam 6:38]
    Ibn ‘Abbaas said: “Everything will be gathered, even the flies.”
    On the Day of Resurrection, the animals will settle scores between one another. It says in a hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “All scores will be settled on the Day of Resurrection; even the hornless sheep will settle its scores with the horned sheep.” (Narrated by Muslim, al-Birr wa’l-Silah wa’l-Adaab, 4679).
    It says in another hadeeth: “Allaah will judge between His creation, jinn, humans and animals. On that Day the score will be settled between the hornless and the horned, until there are no outstanding issues left, then Allaah will say, ‘Be dust!’ At the point the kaafir will say, ‘Would that I were dust!’” Shaykh al-Albaani said: This is saheeh. No. 1966; see al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, part 4, p. 966
    What is obligatory for the Muslim is to be kind to animals and not harm or annoy them. It was reported that a woman was punished because of a cat. Al-Bukhaari narrated from Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with them both) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A woman went to Hell because of a cat which she tied up, and did not feed it or let it eat of the vermin of the earth.” (Bad’ al-Khalq, 3071)
    And Allaah forgave a prostitute because she was kind to a dog. Al-Bukhaari also narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Whilst a dog was walking around a well, almost dying of thirst, one of the prostitutes of Bani Israa’eel saw him, took off her shoe and gave him water. She was forgiven because of that.” (Ahaadeeth al-Anbiyaa’, 3208)
    Whoever harms an animal has to repent to Allaah for that, because the Lord of the animals is the One Who has commanded us to be kind towards them (unless they are harmful).

    https://islamqa.info/en/answers/1196...-is-their-fate

    Praise be to Allah.

    Allah, may He be glorified, tells us that the Angel of death takes the souls of the sons of Adam, as He says (interpretation of the meaning): “Say: "The angel of death, who is set over you, will take your souls, then you shall be brought back to your Lord."” [as-Sajdah 32:11].

    With regard to the souls of animals and birds, there is no text that speaks about them in the Qur’an or saheeh Sunnah, as far as we know. Rather what has been narrated concerning that is a hadeeth that is not sound (saheeh). This is a report that was narrated by al-‘Aqeeli in ad-Du‘afa’: “The lifespan of all animals, lice, fleas, locusts, horses and mules, all of them, cattle and so on, their lifespans are all connected to their tasbeeh. When their tasbeeh comes to an end, Allah takes their souls, and the Angel of death has nothing to do with that.” Al-Albaani said in as-Silsilah ad-Da‘eefah (4/188): It is mawdoo‘ (fabricated).

    Hence some of the scholars said that the Angel of death is the one who takes the souls of all creatures, whilst others said that Allah takes their souls Himself and causes their life to cease.

    See: at-Tadhkirah by al-Qurtubi, p. 75; al-Fawaakih ad-Dawaani, 1/100

    Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) is of the view that asking about that is unnecessary. He (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked: Is the Angel of death appointed to take the souls of animals?

    He replied:

    What would you think if I said that the Angel of death is or is not appointed to take the souls of animals; what benefit is there in knowing this? Did the Sahaabah ask the Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) about that, when they were more eager than others to seek knowledge, and the Messenger was more able than others to answer, yet despite that they did not ask? Rather Allah, may He be glorified and exalted) says (interpretation of the meaning): “Say: ‘The angel of death, who is set over you, will take your souls, then you shall be brought back to your Lord.’” [as-Sajdah 32:11]. He (the Angel of death) is appointed to take the souls of the sons of Adam; with regard to the souls of creatures other than the sons of Adam, nothing is proven. And Allah knows best.

    But the most important thing to say in response to this question is that man should not go to extremes (inasking questions). The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Those who go to extremes (in their words and deeds) are doomed.” So do not ask about things in which there is no benefit. By Allah, if there were any benefit in our knowing whether the Angel of death takes the souls of other creatures, Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, would have told us about it, either in the Qur’an or Sunnah, or Allah would have caused someone to ask the Messenger about that. Hence the Sahaabah would rejoice when a Bedouin came from the desert to ask about something that they might feel too shy to ask the Messenger about.

    The point is, for you and anyone else who is listening, that delving deeply into such matters is wrong, because the Messenger said: ““Those who go to extremes (in their words and deeds) are doomed.” And on one occasion he said: “Those who go to extremes (in their words and deeds) are doomed, those who go to extremes (in their words and deeds) are doomed, those who go to extremes (in their words and deeds) are doomed”, three times. With regard to such matters of the unseen, you should take what has been proven and leave that which has not been mentioned… With regard to matters of the unseen, we should take that which has been proven to us, and as for the rest, we should keep quiet about it; if it was important for us, or if there were any interest to be served by knowing it, Allah would have explained it. Allah, may He be exalted, said to the Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him):

    “And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad SAW) the reminder and the advice (the Quran), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them”

    [an-Nahl 16:44].

    The Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) did not leave anything that we need but he explained it to us.

    End quote from Liqa’ al-Baab al-Maftooh, 11/146

    Secondly:

    With regard to the fate of the souls of these animals, it was narrated by ‘Abd ar-Razzaaq in his Musannaf, by Ibn Jubayr, and by al-Bayhaqi in al-Ba‘th from Abu Hurayrah, that he said concerning the verse (interpretation of the meaning), “There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered” [al-An‘aam 6:38]: All creatures will be gathered on the Day of Resurrection, animals, beasts, birds and everything. Then Allah’s justice on that day will reach such an extent that Allah will settle the score for the hornless animal with the horned one. Then He will say, ‘Be dust,’ at which point the disbeliever will say: ‘Would that I were dust!’ [an-Naba’ 78:40].

    See: Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 3/255

    Al-Albaani said in as-Silsilah as-Saheehah (4/466): This was narrated by as-Suyooti in ad-Durr al-Manthoor (6/310), but he did not say anything about its isnaad as he usually does. According to Ibn Jareer (30/17) it is qawiy. End quote.

    And Allah knows best.

    Re: Do pets go to Heaven?

    https://islamqa.info/en/answers/1440...ls-in-paradise


    Praise be to Allah.

    The animals that will be in Paradise according to the reports are of three types:

    1 – Specific animals which it is said will themselves be in Paradise, such as the dog of the people of the Cave and the she-camel of Saalih (peace be upon him). There are no saheeh reports concerning them.

    2 – Those which are mentioned in the Qur’aan and Sunnah, which Allaah has prepared for the believers in Paradise, whether they are mentioned in specific terms, such as the birds of which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And with the flesh of fowls that they desire”

    [al-Waaqi’ah 56:21]

    or mentioned in general terms, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And We shall provide them with fruit and meat such as they desire”

    [al-Toor 52:22]

    Another example is the bull which Allaah has prepared as food for the people of Paradise, as was narrated from Thawbaan the freed slave of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), who said: “I was standing by the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) when one of the Jewish rabbis came and said, ‘Peace be upon you, O Muhammad,’ and I pushed him back so hard that he nearly fell over… He (the Jew) said: ‘What would be their food after this?’ He (the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) said: ‘A bull which was fed in the different quarters of Paradise would be

    slaughtered for them’…” Narrated by Muslim, 315.

    3 – Those animals which have been specifically mentioned in the saheeh Sunnah, which will be in Paradise. These include:

    (a)It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Pray in the sheep pens and wipe their dust (raghaam), for they are among the animals of Paradise.”

    Narrated by al-Bayhaqi, 2/449; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 3789.

    Raghaam means dust (as translated here). The word has also been narrated as ra’aam, which refers to the mucus that comes from the sheep’s nose. What is meant is to wipe the dust from it, or wipe away what comes from its nose, so as to look after it and take care of it. This was the view of al-Manaawi in Fayd al-Qadeer.

    (b)It was narrated that Abu Mas’ood al-Ansaari said: A man brought a bridled she-camel and said, “This is for the sake of Allaah.” The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “You will have seven hundred she-camels in return on the Day of Resurrection, each of them bridled.” Narrated by Muslim, 1892.

    Al-Nawawi said: What is meant by makhtoomah (bridled) is that it has a khitaam (bridle) on it, which is like a halter. And it was said that that it may be understood as meaning that he will have the reward of giving seven hundred she-camels, or it may be understood as it appears to be, and that he will have seven hundred she-camels in Paradise, each of them bridled, and he will be able to ride them wherever he wants, for pleasure, as was narrated concerning the horses and camels (nujab) of Paradise. This interpretation is more clear. And Allaah knows best.

    Sharh al-Nawawi, 13/38.

    The ahaadeeth about the camels and horses to which al-Nawawi referred are as follows

    (a)It was narrated from Abu Ayyoob that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The people of Paradise will visit one another on white camels as if they are rubies, and there are no animals in Paradise apart from camels and birds.”

    Narrated by al-Tabaraani in al-Kabeer, 4/179.

    Al-Haythami said: This was narrated by al-Tabaraani. Its isnaad includes Jaabir ibn Nooh who is da’eef (weak). Majma’ al-Zawaa’id, 10/413. It was also classed as da’eef by al-Albaani in Da’eef al-Jaami’, 1833.

    (b)It was narrated from Sulaymaan ibn Buraydah from his father that a man asked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), “O Messenger of Allaah, will there be horses in Paradise?” He said, “If Allaah admits you to Paradise, you will not wish that you could be carried on a horse of red rubies which will fly wherever you want in Paradise, but that will happen.” And another man asked him, “O Messenger of Allaah, will there be camels in Paradise?” but he did not say something like he had said to his companion. He said, “If Allaah admits you to Paradise, you will have therein whatever your heart desires and will delight your eyes.”

    Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2543. Classd as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 3/522.

    A similar report was also narrated by Abu Ayyoob from al-Tirmidhi, 2544; and also classed as saheeh by al-Albaani, 3/423.

    And it was narrated in saheeh ahaadeeth that the souls of the martyrs are in the crops of birds in Paradise which fly wherever they want.

    It should be noted that the birds, horses and camels in Paradise are not the same as those in this world; they resemble them in name only. What they are really like is known only to Allaah. But we know that they are extremely beautiful, because they are one of the delights that Allaah has prepared for His close friends in Paradise. This was indicated by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in the hadeeth quoted above, in which it says that the horses of Paradise are of red rubies, and will fly with their rider wherever he wants.

    We ask Allaah to bless us and admit us to Paradise by His mercy, for He is the Most Generous.

    Re: Do pets go to Heaven?

    Thank you for the detailed answers. But I was thinking that animals are usually not too bad, maybe due to their low intelligence. Many of them are very loving and caring. So perhaps they will be forgiven and go to Heaven after their bodies turn to dust. It does not make sense to destroy the soul of a loving, sentient being.

    As for why animals turn to dust, it is not for you or me to question Allah. It is his kingdom, he does what he wishes. We are all his slaves, even the animals are his slaves and we are all his property, even the animals.
