Should a believer be kind to all creatures?

SHAFAQNA – My son, if you can with (your) thought and inspiration make your opinion/judgment about all creatures specially human beings, a kind and merciful opinion; after all, is it not the case that all the numerous creatures of the world are covered by Divine Mercy? Is it not true that life and its blessings are from God? And it has been said: Every creature deserves kindness and mercy. Is it possible for a creature to have anything by itself or be given anything by another creature like itself? Therefore, Divine Mercy and Blessings are from God and covers the entire world [1].
