    So here in the Quran it is said a dog was with a group of holy men in a cave and it was a blessed group? What about angels not entering where a dog is?

    • There are various reasons for this. One reason could be that the dog wasn’t considered “impure” in those times (different Shariah).

      The reason that I personally believe is that Maliki ruling on dogs is the correct one. Dogs aren’t considered impure in the sense other madhabs do in the Maliki madhab. Also, it is hard to imagine angels being scared of dogs. That way an army attacking Muslims only need to arm themselves with dogs to prevent divine help. Does that sound reasonable? There are countless of dog stories in Islam, such as the one where a sinner helped feed a thirsty dog from a well, and got all sins forgiven, and this surah, and so on.

    Farah, I’m Hanafi and I haven’t heard of dogs being impure, or of angels not entering a room where there are dogs. In fact we must be merciful to animals. We do consider cats cleaner than dogs for hygienic reasons, if that’s what you mean.

    Thank you mezba for your blog. We homeschool and we love your blog.
