As salam aleykum, I don't believe te Prophet (saws) commanded the killing of the dog. There is another famous tradition about that, I paste you below,it's is discused by Allama Tabatabai in AL-Mizan (volume 10 of English translation: Also, he says, "al-Fãriyãbī, Ibn Jarīr, Ibnu 'l-Mundhir, Ibn Abī Hãtim, at-Tabarãnī and al-Hãkim (who has said that the tradition is correct) and al-Bayhaqī have narrated from Abū Rãfi‘ that he said, 'Jibrīl came to the Prophet (s.a.w.a.), and asked permission to enter. The Prophet gave him permission but he tarried (in entering). The Prophet took his cloak, came out, and said, "We have already given you permission." (Jibrīl) said, "Yes, but we do not enter a house wherein there is a dog or a picture." They looked around and lo! There was a puppy in one of their houses.' "Abū Rãfi‘ said, 'Then he (the Prophet) ordered me to kill every dog in Medina, and this I did. People came and said, "O Messenger of Allãh! What is allowed to us from this group, which you have ordered to be killed?" The Prophet (s.a.w.a.) was silent. Then Allãh revealed: They ask you as to what is made lawful for them. Say: "The good things are made lawful for you and what you have taught the beasts of prey, training them to hunt . . ." Then the Messenger of Allãh (s.a. w.a.) said, "When a man releases his dog and recites the name of Allãh and it holds the prey for him then he should eat what the dog has not eaten." ' " (ibid.) The author says: What the tradition describes about the coming down of Jibrīl is very strange. Moreover, it does not stand on sound footing because it shows that Jibrīl did not come to the Prophet because there was a puppy in one of their houses. But the story does not tally with the apparent meaning of the verse where both the ques- tion and its reply are unrestricted. More probably, the tradition is a forged one.
Just read this disturbing news. Wahabis threatening Shias with murder and rapes at 2013 Hajj. What level has this Saudi "fonicated" money brought the Wahabis/Sunnis down to? La'an on these enemies of Allah and humanity. http://abna.ir/data.asp?lang=3&id=473388
A friend of mine, who I think its fair to say is a dog lover, recently asked me why dogs are considered najis is Islam. I did a bit of research myself and found out that the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) said keeping a dog in the house prevents angels entering the house as well as one or two qiraats being deducted from a persons good deeds a day, if I'm not mistaken. Anyway the question I have is, though keeping a dog outside of the house is perfectly do-able, there is however of course going to be a time when that dog is a puppy and may need warmth. Obviously a kennel would surely be the most obvious solution but nevertheless, the same way a baby is kept with its mum and dad when young and then gets its own room when it grows a puppy surely needs to be near its owner as well. Thanks for reading (and responding)
