There are tons of clips like that but I am amazed every time I see how they react, respond and care. SubhanAllah indeed.

Just came across this cutie pie. :love:

Muslim cruelty or disdain of dogs is cultural or due to ignorance. But alhamdulillah such attitudes are gradually changing.

I love dogs, if only people realised how much they do for us.

Interesting. There seems to be a difference of opinion about why there are issues with dogs. Myself, my religion doesn't have much doings with " clean or unclean" critters, so I sweep up the floof because I like to keep my house clean and the birds appreciate the fuzz for their nests. 

Seems to me that getting fur on one would be an issue with just about every mammal and many of them( including cats) carry some of the same diseases as dogs ( rabies comes to mind). There might have been a good reason to avoid especially stray dogs in the past before vaccines, but cats were also dangerous.

I have several species on the place and , for me, when I keep a domestic animal, I have to try to meet all of its physical and psychological needs. My chickens are happiest free- ranging, but I have to protect them from predators. The rabbits need big sheltered cages to exercise in, a place to hide when startled, and they need to be able to see each other because their instinct is to live in a warren,so I have to replicate that as much as possible. Dogs are communal creatures, too. They need a pack. That's why ours are always with us in the house except when they go outside to piddle or do their jobs. I think it can create behavior issues in dogs to leave them alone outside. If I felt I had to do that due to my religion, I personally wouldn't have a dog at all.  They are dogs, though, not children. That's my other pet peeve.  They think like dogs,not humans. They have intelligence and emotions and deserve my affection,but they  don't need to wear clothes, get their nails painted, or sleep on your bed. They can sleep on their own , know their place, and respect their bosses' space. That works best around here, anyway.

I read that Zoroastrians were very fond of dogs and when Islam was becoming dominant in Iran the Muslims used to goad an torment the remaining Zoroastrians by being cruel to dogs and demeaning them and that's how the flat-out hostility to dogs became the norm. I dunno if it's true or not but it sounds plausible. 

hi it's completely a wrong idea ,I came from Zoroastrian background & never heard or see something like this the only thing that I heard is what forcing of Zoroastrian to jump over fire for humiliating them that it become a norm in "Chaharshanbeh Souri" that already this action condemed by Shia Marjas in Iran but it was some rullings about honoring Beaver that in Farsi we call it " water dog" "Sageh Abi" "سگ آبی" that now is abandoned between Zoroastrians

What troubles me about the hadith with Gabriel is this, why would the most important angel of Allah not enter a house where Allah's creation lives? Think of the most evil person in this world that adheres to Islam, the angels have no issue entering their home, but a little pooch? Do you see what I'm getting at.

Imam Malik recorded a hadith in Al-Muwatta, the Prophet, peace and blessings upon him and his family, ordered that all dogs be killed. In other words he ordered a cull, now, why do we cull animals other than due to disease? Other than ritual impurity, it may be likely that undomesticated, or rather stray dogs, often carried disease that could pose huge risks to the early Muslim community.

at time of Prophet we didn't have little pooch the cute little dogs are product of our era that media entered dogs to house of everyone at time of Prophet Muhmmad all dogs were for hunting or guarding & some astray dogs  but size or cuteness doesn't change rulings about it also Islam doesn't forbid using dogs in life but against using as home pets that wrongly by Sunni hadiths that has no value for us  because it's completly wrong as you mentioned leads to phobia against dogs.

Of course. Even the dogs they had around the villages back then, I just never understood why an angel would not enter a house. Does the hadith somehow imply that angels get ritually impure from dogs!?

Salam as I know angels don't get impurity from anything because they don't have free will & animalistic side like as us but maybe because Gabriel knew that people like Yazid will come that one of their hobbies is playing with dogs 

. When we take a look at the story of the evil rulers we realize that instead of looking after their people they were spending much more time having fun with dogs, monkeys or hunting birds .that Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) criticized Yazid (la) in a letter to  Mouawiyya in a criticizing installing Yazid (la) as his successsor  on the immoral habits of his son that one of it was palying with dogs [9]

[9] - مجلسی ، محمد باقر ، بحار الانوار ، مؤسسه الوفاء ، بیروت ، 1404 ه ق ، ج 44 ، ص 214 .

Majlilsi Bihar al anwar  v 44 p 214

 

Imam Sadiq (as): "The prayer does not go into the house where a dog is kept because the angels do not enter a house that has a dog unless it is the hunting dog placed in a place isolated from the concession. In this case there is no problem " [11]

 

We elucidate 2 points to complete the question: Islam is not against recreation in itself. The message recommends from Imam Ali (as): "A reasonable man must divide in three the time allotted to him, a part reserved for prayer and recollection with God, the other part must be devoted to work to win his bread and the last part must be directed to useful leisure " [12]

 

These hobbies are considered in other hadiths as a support to motivate the man in the accomplishment of the other obligations incumbent on him. [13] The position of Islam towards the adoption of the dog does not mean that man must lack affection and consideration towards this animal which is a creature and an element of nature. Many hadiths state that affection for animals absolves sins. Indeed, God's messenger said, "A woman who was crossing the desert had stopped near a well to quench her thirst. She got drunk and was about to hit the road when she suddenly saw a dog rubbing his tongue on the damp ground because of the excess of thirst that tormented him. This woman says to herself: this dog is as thirsty as I am. She then filled her bundle of water and watered the dog with her own hands. Thanks to this gesture God forgave all the sins of this woman. The companions of the Prophet (ç) asked if the affection towards the animals is also a source of reward? The Prophet (ç) answered, "There is a reward and a reward for affection towards all living beings" [14]

 

With healthy distractions such as visiting friends, relatives, interacting with his wife and children, visiting the sick and disabled, sports, sightseeing trips and many other hobbies that bring a lot to the man both here and in the hereafter, is there time to waste on useless distractions that may sometimes raise divine wrath?

https://www.islamquest.net/fr/archive/question/fa2443

https://www.islamquest.net/fa/archive/question/fa2443

Some people have a different interpretation of this tradition and say: "The meaning of the house in which the dog is, the angels do not enter it, it is the human being itself, so if the human soul was inspired by the Qur'an and the good deeds, It becomes light and it ascends to the heavens, but if it becomes alienated from these, it becomes a dark ground and the devils will deploy there. Hence, it is narrated that: If man became cruel in the world and cruelty in his life reaches to the maximum level, he is really a dog. (7)

I've always wanted a husky because they look like wolves. I also did a lot of research into wolfdog to at one point. But unfortunately they are not allowed/are najis for us for an unknown reason but since God is behind this, it must be a good reason....

Too much love for pets here lol.

I would definitely be a dog person, despite them being najis and stuff.

At least they are loyal and can fulfill a duty.

I only follow a handful of insta accounts. One is this Japanese Akita who lives in Japan, he's so awesome. It was his 10th birthday recently, but typically this breed as with most big dogs only live up to that. I really want to meet him, but doubt I will.

When analysing the qur'anic verses that mention the dog of the cave, it refers to the dog as one of the companions, and does not differentiate. Allah numbers them as one, so according to this we should avoid insulting those creatures and ask ourselves why this fitna has happened. Why is it that every time Muslims think of dogs they think of dirt? Why do they not remember that they are talking about a full fledged member of the companions of the cave, who did not ruin the ambience or purity of the cave he inhabited. I have several theories why shaytan made this fitna, in case anybody is interested. Anybody else have any theories?

The People of the Cave had different Sharia. I hope you do remember that.

I don't think you're losing anything brother, there's nothing wrong with showing a softer side or affection towards Allah's creation.
