All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.

Some interpreters of the Quran have mentioned what you said in the question. However, the matter of Paradise is among the matters of the Unseen, which can only be confirmed by revelation. Indeed, some scholars authoritatively asserted that there is no narration [Hadeeth] about this that can be relied upon.

Shaykh ‘Attiyyah Saqar issued a Fatwa among the Azhar (university) Fataawa which reads:

“Some interpreters of the Quran said, ‘There are 10 kinds of animals which will enter Paradise which are as follows:

1- The Buraaq (an animal with wings, that is bigger than a donkey and smaller than a mule) which the Prophet rode on the night of Al-Israa’ (Ascension).

2- The she-camel of Saalih which was hamstrung by those who denied the truth.

3- The donkey of ‘Uzayr whom Allaah The Almighty caused to die for one hundred years and then Allaah The Almighty revived him and he found his donkey next to him as it was.

4- The calf, which the Prophet Ibraaheem (Abraham), may, Allaah exalt his mention, slaughtered for his angel guests.

5- The ram with which Allaah The Almighty ransomed Ismaa’eel (Ishmael) from being slaughtered according to the vision seen by Prophet Ibraaheem .

6- The hoopoe that brought news for the Prophet Sulaymaan, (Solomon) about Bilqees (the Queen of Sheba).

7- The ant which said [as related in the Quran] (what means): {“O ants, enter your dwellings that you not be crushed by Solomon and his soldiers while they perceive not.”} [Quran 27:18]

8- The dog of the people of the Cave.

9- The fish that swallowed the Prophet Yoonus (Jonah) .

10- The cow of the Children of Israa'eel that pointed to the killer when the slain man was hit with some of its parts.”

Besides, Al-Aloosi when interpreting the verse of Allaah The Almighty (which means): {…while their dog stretched his forelegs at the entrance.} [Quran 18:18], quoted that all the good animals in this world, like antelopes, peacocks and the animals from which a believer benefits, like sheep and goats, will enter Paradise in a suitable shape but there is no narration [Hadeeth] to be relied upon in this regard.”

Moreover, it was reported in the Mustadrak of Al-Haakim [and which Al-Albaani classified as Saheeh – authentic] that all animals will be told on the Day of Judgment: ‘become dust’. Thus, distinguishing some of them from this general rule needs evidence.

Allaah Knows best.

Please dear brothers and sister remember me in your dua and everybody else too. Salam thanks
