I know about a hadith that says feeding the hungry is sadaqah. So I feed the stray dogs. Please let me know if it is an act of sadaqah.
Also, I heard a few more hadith like, feeding the dogs will not give any returns on the day of ressurection, because dogs are prohibited in Islam. One more hadith I heard was once Prophet S.A.W was sitting under a tree and was bitten by a red ant, and the prophet ordered the sahabas to burn that tree along with the ants. The above 2 hadiths really made me worried: How can Islam be so inhuman towards the animals, and how could our rasool be so hard-hearted?
Are these ahadith authentic, or fake ahadith being circulated? And is feeding those poor creature a sadaqah?
