Mohammad says kill dogs


In the Name of Allāh
The Beneficent, The Merciful.
Peace and blessings on Mohammad.
Allāh–the Glorious and the High,
Lord of the worlds
Mohammad–who brought the world
to our feet and eternity to our arms.

Critics try to malign the Prophet Mohammad for giving instructions to kill dogs. However one hadith clarifies which dog is to be killed. The hadith notes that when attention was brought to the Prophet that Muslims were killing dogs indiscriminately the Prophet forbade this killing and said that only a certain type of dog is to be killed: “It is your duty to kill the jet-black (dog) having two spots (on the eyes), for it is a devil”–(Muslim Vol. 3, #3813).

The explanation to the hadith states:
“The hadith gives us an idea why the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) commanded to kill dogs. There must have been an excess of stray dogs and thus the danger of rabies in the city of Medina and its suburbs. The Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him), therefore ordered to kill them. Later on when it was found that his Companions were killing them indiscriminately, he forbade them to do so and told them that only the ferocious beasts which were a source of danger to life should be killed. The word “devil” in the hadith clarifies the point. Here devil stands for ferocious. See also Kitab-al-Taharah, p.166, note 486” (i.e. Vol. 1, note 486).

And Kitab-al-Taharah, p.166, note 486” states in part: “Islam has declared the dog to be an unclean beast because its saliva has the germs of rabies in it.
The writer of the article on “dog” in the Encyclopaedia Britannica says: “It [rabies] is more common in dogs than in any other animal” (Vol. VII, p. 497). The dog is also responsible for the spread of “Canine Plague”. The virus causing this disease is airborne and affects the other dogs very quickly.”

The Prophet did not forbid the keeping of dogs. Dogs could be trained for hunting and guarding–(Muslim Vol. 3, #3812). In fact, the Prophet taught that a person who gave dog to drink will enter Paradise–(Bokhari Vol. 1, #174, Vol. 3, #551, 646).

While critics try to denigrate Mohammad for killing the “devil” dog. There are videos on the Internet showing wild dogs running rampant in Russia and even riding on subways. Also there are videos showing dogs attacking humans in Russia, London, and the U.S. And one shows a group of dogs attacking another dog, killing it. (There are feral dogs –dogs that were domesticated and abandoned– running wild in packs in the U.S. causing fear among people).
It is not surprising then that America, Britain, and Canada have, in part(s) of the country, banned or restricted certain breeds of dogs –as many as “75 breeds” according to the Internet.  Obviously these laws were instituted to make the community safe from “potentially dangerous” or “violent” dogs.
Which Mohammad did for his community –which had no dart guns or pepper spray or animal nets or medicine to put them to “sleep” or rabies vaccine.

Muslims are not to be overwhelmed by critics’ onslaught.  Critics of Islam are vast on text and void on substance. If you do not understand verse(s) of the Qur’an and/or Hadith leave it alone.
Without doubt, critics’ objective is to have Muslims apostatize from Islam though they cannot prove their own religion (or any other religion) superior to, or equal with, Islam!

Whereas the cardinal doctrines of Islam -Unity of Allah God, Prayer, Zakaat/Charity, Fasting and Hajj- are clearly expressed by Allah in the Qur’an and are conducive to reason and observed by Prophet Mohammad.
   Muslims are to demand that other religionists show that the cardinal doctrines of their religion are clearly expressed by God in their Scripture and are conducive to reason and observed by the prophet(s)/leader/founder of their religion(s).

Muslims who apostatized from Islam have the grand opportunity while you are alive to repent and return to Allāh; when you die -and no one knows when he/she will die- this opportunity evaporates like dewdrop in Hell. ref= tmm _pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1599145314&sr=8-1
