A Dog fighting to defend the Deen (Religion)
Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalaanii (may ALLAAH have mercy on him) said:
“Once upon a time! A group from the Elders of the Christians set out to attend a large Mongolic ceremony. The ceremony was held to ‘christianianise’ one of leaders of the Mongols.
Then one of the (Christian) preachers began insulting The Prophet (Muhammad) salla LLAAHU ‘alayhi wa sallam. Among the congregation, there was a hunting Dog, tied. When this Venomous Christian Crusader began insulting the Prophet, salla LLAAHU ‘alayhi wa sallam, The Dog groaned and sprang up. It jumped on the Crusader and abraded his body harshly. They (the owners of the Dog with the congregation) extricated it from him, after lots of struggle to stop it.
Some of those present said: _This has happened due to your (antagonising) speech against Muhammad salla LLAAHU ‘alayhi wa sallam_. The Crusader said _Never. It is rather because, this Dog protects itself respect, it saw me pointing my finger, so it thought I wanted to beat it._ Then (as if that wasn’t enough), he returned again to abused the Respected Prophet salla LLAAHU’ alayhi wa sallam, and he vituperated and vilified the personality of the Prophet salla LLAAHU ‘alayhi wa sallam. At that, The Dog cut off the rope with which it was tied it bounced on the neck of the Crusader and plucked out his eyes, tore his chest and extended his throat. The Christian Crusader died at that spot that moment. Due to that occurrence, about Forty Thousand (40,000) Mongols accepted Islaam and became Muslims”

Imaamudh-Dhahabiyy also mentioned this story in his ‘Mu’jamush-Shuyuukh’ (page 387) with an Authentic chain (of narration). And one (of those) who witnessed the story, he is Jamaaluddeen, he said: “The Dog preyed on him, by ALLAAH The Great One, and I am watching (the scenario), then brought out his throat, it then tore it and the Accursed (Crusader) died, and the event became a famous one”
