Who like Cats?

Do you know about the celebrity cat Gli, who even has a place in wikipedia.

Gli was born in 2004 and was raised at Hagia Sophia. She gained significant media attention when the Hagia Sophia was re-opened to worship in 2020.

Gli died on 7 November 2020 at the age of 16 .

Gli was loved by the tourists who visited Hagia Sophia, which was a museum at the time, and she became a symbol of Hagia Sophia.

Presidential spokesman İbrahim Kalın, made a statement: “That cat has become very famous, and there are others who haven’t become that famous yet. That cat will be there, and all cats are welcome to our mosques

Recently a New cat is seen in Hagia Sophia who seems to have assumed her duties!

Adorable ! Isn’t it ?

Talking about Cats, Let us not forget Muezza. Do you know that the cat who was a favourite of Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu alaihe wa sallam was called Muezza. Muhammad Sallalahu alaihe wa sallam awoke one day to the sounds of the adhan. Preparing to attend prayer, 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. Another story is, upon returning from the mosque, Muhammad Sallalahu alaihe wa sallam received a bow from Muezza. He then smiled and gently stroked his beloved cat three times.

The cat is such a clean and pure animal that they are “one of those that go around amongst us”.
