Allah The Most Merciful shows Mercy to those who have Mercy on Others

Rasulullah (SAW) once kissed Al-Hasan Ibn `Alee (i.e. his grandson) while Al-Aqra Ibn Haabis was in his presence. So Al-Aqra said to him: ” You kiss your children. I swear by Allah, I have ten children and I never kissed any one of them!” Rasulullah (SAW) said: “He who doesnt show mercy (to others) will not be shown mercy (by Allah).” Verily, mercy – in our religion – encompasses this world and the hereafter, as well as mankind, animals, birds, and the surrounding habitats.
Allah says:
“And My mercy encompasses every thing.”
Allah has described Himself with mercy and He has also described His prophets and righteous servants with it. Allah says:
“Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and those who are with him are severe against the disbelievers and merciful to one another.”
Allah has made his sending forth Rasulullah (SAW) as a mercy to all of creation, as He says:
“And We have not sent you (O Muhammad) except as a mercy to the worlds.”
Allah has commanded that mercy be applied to every thing and in every action. So even when you slaughter you sacrificial animal, you show mercy to it by saying Bismillaah and by sharpening your sword (so that it will be a quick and painless death). Rasulullah (SAW) said:
“Verily Allah has prescribed Ihsaan (goodness) for everything. So when you slaughter, then slaughter in a good manner, and when you kill (in war), then kill in a good manner. And let each of you sharpen his blade and let him spare the animal he slaughters from suffering.”
Allah indeed forgave one prostitute who showed mercy to a dog that was dying from thirst. She filled her shoe with water and then taking hold of the dogs mouth, she gave it the water to drink. So Allah was thankful to her for what she did and forgave her sins. O
nce our Rasulullah (SAW) saw one of his Companions grab the baby of a lark, and it began screeching over the heads of the Companions. Rasulullah (SAW) said: “Who bereaved this (lark) of her child? Return her children back to her!”
Indeed Rasulullah (SAW) has commanded the mento take care of the children and the women and the elders. Thus, in his last words to his Companions and his nation, Rasulullah (SAW) said:
“The prayer and what your right hands possess.” “Take good care of the women (i.e. wives).”
Rasulullah (SAW) said:  “The best of you is the best to his wives. And I am the best amongst you with my wives.”  Mercy is something innate, which Allah has placed into the hearts of (all) His creatures, even the lions – the most dangerous of them – for they are merciful to their children. Yet Allah is more merciful to His creation than a mother is to her child. That is why on the day that He created mercy, He created one hundred parts to it. And He left ninety-nine parts with Him, by which He will show mercy to His servants on the Day of Judgement, and sent down one single part of mercy to earth, which humans and animals share amongst themselves.

The Messenger of Allaah (sala Allahu `alihi was-Salaam) has condemned the person that is void of any mercy and who doesnt attain a large amount of it. This is why he (sala Allahu `alihi was-Salaam) condemned the one who breaks family ties. He (sala Allahu `alihi was- Salaam) said:

“Kinship is connected to the Throne (`Arsh). It says: `Whoever severs me, then break (away from) him. And whoever maintains me, then keep connected to him.”

And in one narration:

“Verily, the kinship will be connected to the Throne of the Most Merciful on the Day of Judgement. It will say: `This is the place for the one who sought refuge in You from the severing (of family ties). So Allaah will say to it: `Will it please you that I connect those who maintained you and that I cut off those who severed you? And it will say: `I will be pleased (with that), my Lord.”
