Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

My beloved friends! Express submission before Allah Ta’ala, (that Being who has complete control over everything), and everything will become submissive and obedient to you. The incident of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) is well known, where they were once in the jungles of Africa and they needed to pitch their tents and encamp. However, the jungle was such that it was filled with various wild animals and harmful creatures. Hence, Hazrat Uqbah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), who was the leader of the army, took a few Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) with him and went to a certain place. He then addressed the animals and announced saying, “O insects and animals! We are a group of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! We wish to stay here and you should thus depart. After this announcement, if we find any animal around this area, we will kill it.” After this announcement was made, the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) witnessed the animals depart while carrying their young in total submission and obedience before the command of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum).
