Why Do So Many Muslims Hate Dogs?
Share

by Hugh Fitzgerald

A Muslim taxi-driver in England, one Abandi Kassim, was recently fined for refusing to take on a blind passenger’s seeing-eye dog because, as Kassim claimed: “For me, it’s about my religion.”

There have been many such cases in the U.S., the UK, and Canada of Muslims refusing to pick up fares with seeing-eye dogs. Many of the Somali taxi drivers who made up three-quarters of the 900 taxi drivers at the Minneapolis airport refused to pick up blind passengers because of their dogs. When forced to do so, some of them simply quit.

In Toronto, a guide dog’s owner was refused taxi service by a Muslim driver. In Saskatchewan, the same problem. In Montreal, in Ottawa, and all across Canada, Muslim drivers have refused service to seeing-eye dogs. In London, in Nottingham, in Reading, and in Tunbridge Wells, taxi drivers have refused service to fares with dogs.

Blind or poorly sighted people with guide dogs have been forced by Muslim bus drivers to get off -- often to calm the hysterical reaction of other Muslim passengers. Much worse, killings of dogs, chiefly by poison, in areas populated mainly by Muslims has been reported in Spain, Sweden, France, and Great Britain.

This Muslim hatred for dogs, as even many non-Muslims now know, has its origin in a celebrated hadith from the most authoritative collection, that by Bukhari:

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)

Two hadith from Sahih Muslim vividly convey Muhammad’s murderous hatred of dogs:

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 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)

Dogs are to be killed, according to Muhammad, with the only exception made for those that are used for hunting or to guard a herd of cattle. But why? And why the mysterious coupling of two disparate items deemed haram: “pictures and dogs”?

This is a sad but educational article.  I have wondered why cats were fine but dogs were abhorred, as I have seen myself - Mohammedan children terrified by the sight of a little dog when we were out at a public garden.

One theory of why cats are OK but dogs haram that I've heard is that, as a caravan robber, Mohammed disliked the barking of dogs that warned a caravan of his approach. I have also heard that Mohammed's possible epileptic condition could be triggered by the sharp sound of a dog barking.

Personally, I love dogs and usually don't appreciate persons who dislike them.  A good dog will give its life for a person, and is more accepting and kindly than most people!

  Some experts have been looking for a way to filter out "Islamists" from more benign Muslims in our immigration security screening. They say that dogs can smell fear, so why not train them to sniff out potential Islamists since they will be afraid of dogs. Grrr!

I have witnessed this so many times when I am out with my 2 small dogs, the Muslim children shriek and run and the adults look at you like your the devil and say comments in their own language, I only recently found out why they behave like this, and that at Ramadan any Muslims with a dog takes it to be put down, theirs a horrific picture of hundreds of dead dogs in the road sides at Ramadan time. I don't understand why Mullins come to this country if they detest our ways so much.

And Trump wanting them out of our country is a bad thing? ... This article sums up why most Muslims end up burning in the eternal lake of fire. This also proves that becoming a Muslim somehow makes you a legitimate sociopath, which by definition is a person that can not feel any trace of human emotion (especially empathy and decency) towards anyone or anything (in this case dogs). If you live in my country, our country, you play by our rules. Animal cruelity will not be tolerated and you will pay the consequences no matter religion, race, sex, etc. I find this article almost unbelievable, yet on the other hand I know its totally believable because after all its Muslims, a religion that had to fly airplanes into a skyscraper so they could get attention. Yeah I guess I'd hate America too if I was held up in a shanty in the middle of the desert with no air conditioning and nothing to do but listen to horrible "Holy" music all day.

Muslims are awful people. They are full of conflict and anger towards Americans. They do not fit in our country. Their religion causes problems and conflict. Their worshipping practices are self serving and they will turn on Americans once they are great in numbers. You don’t think so? Just watch. The one thing ding dong trump is doing right is his ban on Muslims. These dirtbags have kicked me off church grounds for having a dog. They think a dog is dirty? I think their minds, their society and their sick little religion is dirty. The way they treat women is dirty. They want to kill and torture dogs for being dirty? The most loyal animal to human kind..mans best friend?! I say eye for an eye..the Muslims should all be removed from the US and treated as they treat dogs. A useless race of crappy people.

Dogs are dangerous animals, as well as they are not clean like eg: a cat that will do it's business in the litter. It's a pity that many people where I live walk their dog, worse without a leash, even take them to restaurants, why not a bird or a rabbit? I don't get it what's so special in having a dog? If you ask me which animal would you like to take out with you, I would say a bird/parrot, they are fun and can talk, unlike a dog, I don't think a dog is friendly like a cat or a bird. That's my opinion, you are free to disagree but do it politely. That's all what I have to say.
