It is only Haram to have a dog if it is for being a pet, other than that the dog is ok. مَنِ اتَّخَذَ كَلْبًا إِلاَّ كَلْبَ مَاشِيَةٍ أَوْ صَيْدٍ أَوْ زَرْعٍ انْتَقَصَ مِنْ أَجْرِهِ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ قِيرَاطٌ That the Messenger of Allah () said: "Whoever acquires a dog - with the exception of a dog to guard livestock, a hunting dog, or a farm dog - ...

Is this allowed? Yes no doubt. Dogs are a creation of Allah and treating them, or any animal, with kindness that is due right upon them unless prevented otherwise. The Prophet said = أَنَّ رَجُلاً رَأَى كَلْبًا يَأْكُلُ الثَّرَى مِنَ الْعَطَشِ، فَأَخَذَ الرَّجُلُ خُفَّهُ فَجَعَلَ يَغْرِفُ لَهُ بِهِ حَتَّى أَرْوَاهُ، فَشَكَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ ...

Narrated Abu Mas`ud: The Prophet prohibited taking the price of a dog, the earnings of a soothsayer and the money earned by prostitution. حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي بَكْرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، عَنْ أَبِي مَسْعُودٍ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ نَهَى النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ...

This saying has no basis neither in Quran nor Sunna. It might be an overdraw interpretation of ahadith which prohibit eating their meat (Sahih Muslim 1 2 which considers them as part of as-siba-a السِّبَاعِ or as a conclusion from this hadith in sahih al-Bukhari and this from sahih Muslim as it's forbidden to sell them they shouldn't be eaten) or about ...

Yes they are, because of that the Prophet ordered us to clean a vessel which has been licked by a dog, seven times the first with soil. Muslim (279) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The purification of the vessel of one of you, if a dog licks ...

Some hadith's in this reference: 1] [Hadith - Bukhari 3:515] A dog for guarding the cattle or hunting Allah's Apostle(P.B.U.H) said, "Whoever keeps a dog, one Qirat of the reward of his good deeds is deducted daily, unless the dog is used for guarding a farm or cattle." Abu Huraira (in another narration) said from the Prophet, "unless it is used ...

There's nothing wrong with touching and playing with a dog. They are pure animals and no need for purifying yourself afterward. It's a cultural stigma that has made dogs into filthy animals and it's not related to Islam. So it's not haraam and it's not even disliked. Dogs use to wonder around and urinate in the masjid (mosque) during the time of ...

Howling is a way of communication between canidae (exempla: give their position). Dogs have no idea what's music, adhan or an ambulance' siren, for them it's another canidae howling so they will try to communicate with it -through howling-. There are many sources on internet, just google it, here's one.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم It won’t be counted as a haram (forbidden) act. In truth, it is not haram to touch dogs, but Islam emphasizes in order to preventing form being Najis (impure). Since as you possibly are aware, you should wash (by its conditions) your hand if you touch a dog(s) if: You as a person who touches the dog or the dog be wet (one of them, or ...

When this old person finally found water, they did not drink it all but gave some to the dog. For this act, it is believed that they are rewarded heaven. To treat ...

On the quote from al-Mubarakafuri's, Tuhfat al-Ahwadhi, 8:74 This is referring to page 74 in volume 8 of the comment of al-Mubarkafuri on Jami' at-Tirmidhi. The hadith which is quoted there is this one. This is the 3rd reference of Imam at-Tirmidhi in the chapter titled "on The ...

Only hadith and Quran, that's what I like. About eating dogs: عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ نَهَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَنْ كُلِّ ذِي نَابٍ مِنَ السِّبَاعِ وَعَنْ كُلِّ ذِي مِخْلَبٍ مِنَ الطَّيْرِ ‏.‏ Ibn 'Abbas reported that Allah's Messenger peace be upon him prohibited the eating of all fanged beasts of prey, and all the birds ...

Brother That Hadith about burning the entire tree was not about Prophet Muhammad SAWS, It was narrated by Prophet Muhammad about some other prophet who did that. Kindly watch out for Christians and Jews who fabricate falsehood to intentionally degrade ISLAM. The right Hadith is as follows: Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallaahu Anhu) reports, I heard the Prophet (...

In the name of God, the Most Merciful, the Most Just. If you live in a city or in village then, I have a message for you that the Messenger of God said: ”Whoever acquires a dog - with the exception of a dog to guard livestock, a hunting dog, or a farm dog - each day a Qirat is deducted from his reward.

First be aware that owning is not the topic of discussion in this hadith at all, as the issue is the matter of sales only. Views of the fiqh schools The majority of scholars like the scholars of the four schools of jurisprudence and many of the tab'iyn and ibn 'Abbas () among the sahabah consider the sale as permissible while one statement of imam Ahmad ...

There is no harm in touching something najis. You just have to wash yourself before you want to do your prayers. You can feed and touch it. Owning a dog or praying while najis are things that aren't accepted... I would avoid letting him know in your first encounters. If your children are baliq (mature) then let them know that that they should wash ...

So if dog licks your utensils, then the utensils must be washed 7 times and 1 time with soil.Similarly if a dog licks your clothes, then you need to wash it the same way - 7 times and 1 time with soil. It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of ...

It is not permissible to have dogs as pets without a real need; for guarding mainly. (source) (Arabic source) I am not sure how it affects those with speech dysfluency, but you might need to consult your local scholar or Muslim community on the matter for more context. Because as for dogs, it is quite difficult to clean oneself from its Najasah.

It is not permissible for a Muslim to keep a dog, unless he needs this dog for hunting, guarding livestock or guarding crops. As Quran says : وَ تَحۡسَبُهُمۡ اَيۡقَاظًا وَّهُمۡ رُقُوۡدٌ ​​ۖ وَنُـقَلِّبُهُمۡ ذَاتَ الۡيَمِيۡنِ وَ ذَاتَ الشِّمَالِ​​ ۖ وَكَلۡبُهُمۡ بَاسِطٌ ذِرَاعَيۡهِ بِالۡوَصِيۡدِ​ ؕ لَوِ اطَّلَعۡتَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ لَوَلَّيۡتَ مِنۡهُمۡ ...

Let me clarify a few myths and make a few points: It is NOT haraam to own a dog, though it is not hygienic to keep a dog in the house. It is NOT haraam to touch a dog or any other animal. If the saliva of a dog touches you or any part of your clothing, then it is required of you to wash the body part touched and the item of clothing touched by the dog’s ...

If the sole purpose of having a dog is to keep it as a pet, then it's haraam to do so. The Prophet said: "Whoever keeps a dog, neither as a watch dog nor as a hunting dog, will get a daily deduction of two Qirat from his good deeds." (Sahih al-Bukhari) The prohibition has nothing to do with dogs being impure or that the angels don't enter the home. ...

It depends: There are two main views on dogs in Islam. One view, and the most common one is the Shafi'i madhab, which considers dogs to be najis (ritually unclean) while the Maliki madhab differs, and considers dogs to be pure.1 So with that, we understand that if you are of the Maliki madhab it is viewed as halal to own a dog.3 (Keeping it in your home if ...

Saheeh Bukari Now, if one needs a ...
