Cleric calls for seizure of dogs and their owners
afp ^ | October 13, 2002

Posted on 10/13/2002 9:55:09 AM PDT by Ranger

TEHRAN, Oct 13 (AFP) - A conservative Iranian prayer leader denounced the "moral depravity" of dog ownership and called on the judiciary to arrest all dogs and their owners, the reformist Etemad paper reported Sunday.

"I demand the judiciary arrest all dogs with long, medium or short legs together with their long-legged owners, otherwise I will arrest them myself", the Etemad newspaper quoted the cleric, named as Hojatoleslam Hasani, as saying at a Friday prayer sermon in the northwestern city of Urumieh.

"The abominable people in this country think that liberty means loose morals, for example men and women walk in the streets hand in hand", he added.

Depsite official diapproval of dogs, which are mostly referred to as "unclean" in Islam, dog ownership recently has been on the rise and more women are seen in public walking their dogs, particularly in northern Tehran.

In June the police banned the sale of dogs and stipulated penalties for dog walking in public, which is seen by conservatives as a sign of the corrupting influence of decadent Western culture.

It's because they're Islamofags. Like Mohammad Atta and Johnny Taliban.

I guess if I were unfortunate enough to live in Iran, I'd be in real trouble now. I'd never let anyone harm my dear dogs.

First, they came for the non-believers. And I did nothing because it did not affect me.

Then, they came for my doggie, and I still did nothing, because it did not affect my person.

Next, they'll be after the Suni's.

Northern Tehran is the wealthier part of Tehran.

A dog runs into a post office, grabs a telegram and writes "Arf arf arf arf arf arf arf arf arf". After checking the telegram the clerk goes: - There are only nine words here, for the same price you can add one more. - Uh, no, thank you, - goes the dog, - then it's not gonna make any sense.

Dog walks into a bar, sits on a stool and orders a beer. Bartender says, "We don't serve dogs here," pulls a pistol
and shoots the dog in a paw. The dog hops howling out of the bar. Next day, the dog walks into the bar wearing a ten-gallon hat and sporting a six-gun on each hip. The bar falls silent. The dog looks around and says, "I'm looking for the man who shot my paw."

From the Ask the Imam Website:

Hadhrat Abu Talha (Radhiyallaahu Ánhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, "Angels do not enter a house wherein there is a dog or an animate picture. (Sahih Bukhari Hadith no. 2986)

Hadhrat Ibn Abbas (Radhiyallaahu Ánhuma) reports from Hadhrat Maimoona (Radhiyallaahu Ánha) that once Rasulullah (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam) became sad; and said that Jibra'eel (Álayhis Salaam) promised to meet him at night but did not turn up. "By Allah what has kept him back," said the Prophet (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam). Then he realised a puppy was under his bed. He ordered that the puppy be removed and the area be sprinkled with water. In the afternoon when Jibra'eel (Álayhi Salaam) came, Rasulullah (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam) enquired as to the delay. Jibra'eel (Álayhi Salaam) said that we, the group of Angels do not enter a house wherein there is a dog or pictures. (Sahih Muslim Hadith no.3928)

In the light of these Ahaadith and other narrations it is not permissible to keep dogs as pets. The household is deprived of the Mercy of Allah Taãla.

However, Jurists have stated that it is permissible to keep a dog for security purposes, farming and hunting.

The saliva of a dog is Najis (impure). if it touches the clothes or body, that portion also becomes impure and must be washed.

They are afraid that the dog will teach the owner to lick his own balls thereby depriving a fellow Muslim!

Northern Tehran is the wealthier part of Tehran.

Which means what, exactly? They own bigger piles of rocks, dirt and rags than the poverty-stricken Southerners?

They've got fancier shops and restaurants, and they're much more unhappy about the restrictions imposed on life by the Islamic Republic.

A false one, IMHO. The dogs will stay; the mullahs will soon be gone.

If dogs are "unclean", what does that make the mulahs and prayer leaders? Bathing is considered an odd ritual, if not "sinful", and toilet paper is unheard of (they use the left hand - the right is for eating - really!).

However, I can understand their objections. Dogs are loyal to their owners; that is the right of the Islamic leaders to have slavishly loyal servants - the peasants!

Good grief! By now, everybody knows that proud, self-respecting Islamowacks disapprove of dogs; they greatly (ahem) "prefer" goats, of course. Really cute, affectionate goats. Just another indication of their superior culture, donchya know?

Dogs with no legs at all aren't very popular pets. "Fetch the stick" takes hours...

From the hadith of Sahih Bukhari:

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 539:
Narrated Abu Talha:
The Prophet said, "Angels do not enter a house witch has either a dog or a picture in it."

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 540:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
Allah's Apostle ordered that the dogs should be killed.

This helps to explain a lot about the Muzzies; since they apparently offed all their intellectuals early in the game...

We do agree for the most part. The only good Muslims are the ones who don't really know/believe what their religion teaches and what Mohammed really was.

And unlike Jerry Falwell I ain't gonna backtrack.

The more I hear about these Muslimes, the more disgusted I get. Drinking camel urine? ugh! I'm glad I ate supper long ago.

Maybe, just maybe this will set off the uprising that topples the present regime.

That is only part of the hadith, the whole story here:

Sahih Bukhari, Ablutions, Volume 8, Book 82, Number 797:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
A group of people from 'Ukl (or 'Uraina) tribe ----but I think he said that they were from 'Ukl came to Medina and (they became ill, so) the Prophet ordered them to go to the herd of (Milch) she-camels and told them to go out and drink the camels' urine and milk (as a medicine). So they went and drank it, and when they became healthy, they killed the shepherd and drove away the camels. This news reached the Prophet early in the morning, so he sent (some) men in their pursuit and they were captured and brought to the Prophet before midday. He ordered to cut off their hands and legs and their eyes to be branded with heated iron pieces and they were thrown at Al-Harra, and when they asked for water to drink, they were not given water. (Abu Qilaba said, "Those were the people who committed theft and murder and reverted to disbelief after being believers (Muslims), and fought against Allah and His Apostle").
