In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Traditionally, dogs have been seen as
impure, and the Islamic legal tradition with clear references from the
Hadeeth has developed several injunctions that warn Muslims against
most contact with dogs. Now it is extremely hard to convince people
that there is not a single verse in the Quraan which prohibits people
from keeping Dogs, rather it permits with clear examples of keeping
Dogs for our benefits. When we give any references from the Quraan
misguided Muslims exploited by misguided Mullas start fighting with
those who are presenting clear references from the Quraan and so are
becoming Liers of the Quraan and don’t even feel shame for it. For sure
they will be questioned on the Day of Judgment.
Every animal has some natural need,
and only human have developed proper clean washroom. If anyone wants to
keep any animals, he/she must take care of it to make sure inside house
is clean all the time, till someone discovers dog pampers or cat
pampers etc. Also where ever they want to keep them in the farm etc.,
make sure to keep those places hygienically clean all the time, to
prevent the birth as well as spread of germs.
Dogs are mentioned, not just once,
(Ref: Al_Quraan_005:004, 007:176, 018:018, 018:022 (four times). NO
WHERE does Allah call the dogs dirty animals or gave any indication
that they should be avoided or treated the way many Muslims including
misguided Mullas think they should. Actually the story of the people of
the cave (Ref: Al_Quraan_005:004, 007:176, 018:018, 018:022), gives the
indication that we should appreciate it. The people of the cave, 3, 5 or 7
were mentioned in the Quran and every time God insists on letting us
know that their dog was there with them. Their story can be as complete
without the mention of the dog, but God did, Why? God is telling us
these righteous people were in the cave with their dog, if it is not
righteous to have dogs, God would not have told us that story in which
the dog has to be remembered as being there.
Hadith tells us that angels won't enter a room where there is a dog. That means that for 309
years that the sleepers were in the cave, no angel ever entered. Yet
God says "We turned them...." The use of "we" clearly indicates the
participation of angels. There is absolutely no reason to mention the
dog as part of this story, except to make it clear to future generation
that dogs are permitted to live among people, right "in their midst."
And 18:22 clearly shows that the dog was counted right along with the believers.
Keeping Dog Halaal or Haraam?
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre
Fabricated Hadeeth which contradict
the Quraan, were falsely attributed to the prophet Muhammed
(Peace-Be-Upon-Him). The Prophet Muhammed (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) who lived
by the Quraan did not have done anything but agree with the Quraan, not
contradict it. Allah gave us a Great Criteria (Quraan) to judge the
truth from the man-made fabrications. If it were from other than Allah,
they would have found in it numerous contradictions, (Ref:
You would think that they were awake, when they were in fact asleep. We
turned them to the right side and the left side, while their dog stretched his arms in their midst, (Al_Quraan_018:018).
Some would say, they were three; their dog being the fourth, while others would say, Five; the sixth being their dog, as they guessed. Others said, seven, and the eighth was their dog.
Say, My Lord is the best knower of their number. Therefore, do not
argue with them; just go along with them. You need not consult anyone
about this, (Al_Quraan_018:022).
They consult you concerning what is lawful for them; say, Lawful for you are all good things, including what trained dogs
and falcons catch for you. You train them according God's teachings.
You may eat what they catch for you, and mention God's name thereupon.
You shall observe God. God is most efficient in reckoning,
The heavens and the earth are full of proofs for the believers. Also in your creation, and the creation of all the animals, there are proofs for people who are certain, (Al_Quraan_045:003-004).
Among His proofs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the creatures He spreads in them. He is able to summon them, when He wills, (Al_Quraan_042:029).
Dogs have Excellent Senses/Services:
The dog's senses include vision,
hearing, sense of smell, sense of taste, touch and sensitivity to the
earth's magnetic field etc. Dogs can also be used many other services
including hunting. Guide dogs, also known as service animals or
assistance animals, are assistance dogs trained to lead blind and
visually impaired people around obstacles.

Dog intelligence is the ability of
the dog to perceive information and retain it as knowledge for applying
to solve problems, which includes chemicals, drugs, cancers etc. It
also helps detect/protect your home/property from intruders etc.

Medical Detection Dogs:
Medical detection dogs are capable of
detecting diseases by sniffing a person directly or samples of urine or
other specimens. Dogs can detect odour in one part per trillion, as
their brain's olfactory cortex is (relative to total brain size) 40
times larger than humans. Dogs may have as many as 300 million odour
receptors in their nose, while humans may have only 5 million. Each dog
is trained specifically for the detection of single disease from the
blood glucose level indicative to diabetes to cancer. To train a cancer
dog requires 6 months. A Labrador Retriever called Daisy has detected
551 cancer patients with an accuracy of 93 percent and received the
Blue Cross (for pets) Medal for her life-saving skills.

Do NOT declare anything Haraam (Forbidden) which Allah didn’t say so in the Quraan:
We are MUST follow the guidance from the Quraan. If you find any Hadeeth which looks like 100% Authentic and narrations are correct BUT it contradicts the Quraan that cannot be authentic at all. Only and only the Quraan is the book of Guidance.
O Prophet! Why do you forbid (yourself) that which Allah has made lawful for you; you seek to please your wives;
and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. Allah has already ordained for you
the dissolution of your oaths and Allah is your Protector, and He is
the Knowing the Wise, (Al_Quraan_066:001-002).
when our Clear Signs are rehearsed unto them, those who rest not their
hope on their meeting with Us, say: bring us reading other than this,
or change this, say: it is NOT for me, of my own accord, to change it:
I follow Naught but what is revealed unto me (as is): if I were to
disobey my Lord, I should myself fear the Penalty of a great day (to
come). Say: If Allah had to willed, I should not have rehearsed it to
you, nor would he have made it known to you. A whole lifetime before
this have I tarried amongst you: will ye not then understand,
(Al_Quraan_010.015 – 016)?
And recite (and teach) what has been revealed to thee of the Book of your Lord: none can change his words, and none will you find as a refuge other than him, (Al_Quraan_018.027).
In brief, it is NOT Haraam to own a
dog, though it is not hygienic to keep a dog in the rooms, since it
does not wear pampers etc., unless it is trained to keep inside rooms
clean. If anyone wants to own a dog, he/she must keep special care of
it, make regular visit to Doctor to keep it healthy. Make sure it is
well trained, so that it can help you a lot in many ways. Before passing any Fatwa, make sure it is not against fundamental direction of the Quraan.
