“My Lord says: Animals are my silent slaves; they keep silent when they are oppressed now but they will speak on the Day of Reckoning.” Is this statement a hadith narration?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

We have not found the exact statement but there are some hadith narrations that express a similar meaning:

“If a person kills a living being/an animal/a bird unjustly, they will complain of him on the Day of Judgment." (Kanzul-Ummal, h. no: 39968)

“If a person kills a sparrow unjustly, Allah will question him on the Day of Judgment." (Kanzul-Ummal, h. no: 39969)

“If a person kills a sparrow unjustly, it will complain of him to Allah on the Day of Judgment by saying, ‘O Lord! This man killed me just for fun, not for some interest (like eating).' (Nasai, Dahaya 42; Kanzul-Ummal, h. no: 39971)
