The sad camel

It’s a beautiful story – told from the perspective of a camel (with the most amazing sound effects). This means that the hardest part is when my kids demand that I narrate the story with sound effects 🤦‍♀️ The story is based around the following hadith:

Prophet (ﷺ) entered the garden of a man from the Ansar. All of a sudden when a Camel saw the Prophet (ﷺ), it wept tenderly producing yearning sound and its eyes flowed. The Prophet (ﷺ) came to it and wiped the temple of its head. So it became silent. He then said “Who is the master of this Camel? Whose Camel is this? A young man from the Ansar came and said “This is mine, Apostle of Allah(ﷺ).” He said “Don’t you fear Allah about this beast which Allah has given in your possession? It has complained to me that you keep it hungry and load it heavily which fatigues it.” [Sunan Abi Dawud]
