Sharia Alert from Enlightened Secular Turkey. “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.'” (Bukhari, vol. 4, bk. 54, no. 450)
But killing them? Sure. “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, bk. 2, no. 551)
“Muslims are accused of killing ‘unclean’ dogs,” from the Telegraph, with thanks to Twostellas:
Pro-islamic municipalities in Turkey are killing stray dogs, animal rights groups claim.
Municipal workers are hunting, torturing and killing the animals by the hundreds, the campaigners say….
Animal rights campaigners who accompanied Miss Isikalp last week said that at least two of the dogs had been sexually abused.
The mayor of Mamak, Gazi Sahin, of the ruling pro-Islamic Justice and Development Party, has denied responsibility.
