Cats, books and the Qur’an

Cats were valued by Islamic scholars, who are said to have kept them in their libraries, because they would prey on mice that would ruin books. Cats are often depicted in paintings alongside Islamic scholars & bibliophiles


Here are cats, books and the Qur’an…

“Cats do not invalidate the prayer because they are one of the things that are useful in the house” - Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Narrated by Abu Hurairah. Ibn Majah 369
