Leyla the sparrow

It’s a very cute story – told from the perspective of a bird whose children she deeply loves. It is based on the following hadith.

Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas’ud: We were with the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) during a journey. He went to ease himself. We saw a bird with her two young ones and we captured her young ones. The bird came and began to spread its wings. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) came and said: Who grieved this for its young ones? Return its young ones to it…[Sunan Abi Dawud]
