Muezza the Prophet’s Cat

I came across some really cool information a few days ago as I was searching up stories, and wisdom on cats in Islam.

There’s this story that goes as such:

“Prophet Muhammad awoke one day to the sounds of the Adhan, the Muslim daily call to prayer. Preparing to attend, he began to dress himself; however, he soon discovered his cat Muezza sleeping on the sleeve of his prayer robe. Rather than wake her, he used a pair of scissors to cut the sleeve off, leaving the cat undisturbed. When he returned from the Mosque, Prophet Muhammad received a bow from Muezza in gratitude. He then stroked his beloved cat three times. The accuracy of this story is not clear, as no references to it are made in the Quran or the Hadith, but rather by historical sources not considered religious text in Islam.” Taken from wikipedia.

There was also a book called 100 Cats Who Changed Civilization: History’s Most Influential Cats, which is a must read. I’m really interested in getting that book. Here’s a page there about Muezza.

Definitely, one day, should we get a female cat I’d love to name her Muezza.
