The Hatred of Dogs

Earlier this month, a Syrian refugee threw a dog out of the window of a third floor apartment in Germany. The Muslim migrant explained that he was just unhappy with the dog's presence, was glad the dog had died, and didn't see any issue with his actions. There was also recently Abandi Kassim, a Muslim taxi driver in Kuntistan (formerly United Kingdom), who refused to allow a blind passenger's seeing-eye dog, claiming, “For me, it’s about my religion.” Similar incidents occurred in Toronto, and Saskatwewan in Cuckistan (formerly known as Canada), with Muslims refusing support dogs in violation of the law of the land.

In the Netherlands, a Muslim politician even went as far as calling for a ban on dogs. In Spain, two Islamic groups based in the northeastern region of Catalonia asked local officials to regulate the presence of dogs in public spaces so they do not “offend Muslims."

While these latest examples of cultural enrichment may come as a surprise to the uneducated and mentally challenged, Islam does in fact promote a hatred of dogs. It is, after all, in Islam's scriptures:

“Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, ‘We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or a dog.'” — Sahih Bukhari 4.54.50

“Abdullah (b. Umar) (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) ordered the killing of dogs and we would send (men) in Medina and its corners and we did not spare any dog that we did not kill, so much so that we killed the dog that accompanied the wet she-camel belonging to the people of the desert.” — Sahih Muslim 10.3811

“Ibn Mughaffal reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) ordered killing of the dogs, and then said: What about them, i. e. about other dogs? and then granted concession (to keep) the dog for hunting and the dog for (the security) of the herd, and said: When the dog licks the utensil, wash it seven times, and rub it with earth the eighth time.” — Sahih Muslim 551

Furthermore, Islam further forbids the keeping of dogs, and a mere contact with a dog is seen as filthy and impure. Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl states indeed that "it is NOT haraam to own a dog, though it is not hygienic to keep a dog in the house", and "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 mouth or snout."

Our western society's, and mankind's ancestral relationship with dogs, is incompatible with Islam. Are we willing to relinquish our love for man's best friend in the name of multiculturalism and inclusion?
