Speaking Of The Wolf

It has been written that a wolf also spoke to one of the companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him) near Al-Madina, as narrated in Musnad of Ahmad, Vol.3, Page 83, Musnad Abi Saeed Al-Khudri.
White wolf with blue eyes 
Narrated Abi Saeed Al-Khudri, While a shepherd was amongst his sheep suddenly a wolf attacked a sheep and took it away.

The shepherd chased the wolf and back the sheep. The wolf sat on its tail and addressed the shepherd saying,

"Be afraid of Allah, you have taken the provision from me which Allah gave me."

The shepherd said, "What an amazing thing! A wolf sitting on its tail speaks to me in the language of a human being."

The wolf said, "Shall I tell you something more amazing than this? There is Muhammad (the Messenger of Allah) in Yathrib (Al-Madina) informing the people about the news of the past."

Then the shepherd proceeded towards Al-Madina driving his sheep till he entered Al- Madina, cornered his sheep to one side and came to Allah's Messenger and informed the whole story.

Allah's Messenger ordered for the proclamation of a congregational prayer, then he came out and asked the shepherd to inform the people (about his story) and he informed them.

Then Allah's Messenger said,

"He (the shepherd) has spoken the truth . By Him (Allah) in Whose Hands my soul is, the Day of Resurrection will not be established till beasts of prey speak to the human beings, and the stick lash and the shoe-laces of a person speaks to him and his thigh informs him about his family as to what happened to them after him."

(Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 3, Page 83. Musnad Abi Saeed Al-Khudri).
