The Shaykh & His Dog

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

A man visited Shaykh Malik ibn Dinar (q.s.), who was sitting by himself.  A dog had sat down next to Shaykh Malik (q.s.), and had put its head on one of his knees.  When the visitor made to push the dog away, Shaykh Malik (q.s.) said, “Leave him be.  He neither harms nor annoys.  He is better than someone who is wicked.”
