Selling pet dog accessories halaal

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:


I am aware of the fact that it is forbidden to sell dogs. However, my business involves selling products for dogs like pet carrier, pet harness and belts and the like. I wanted to know if that was permissible in Islam and is my business halaal.

Selling pet dog accessories halaal

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Al-Muwatta Hadith 31.68

Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab from Abu Bakr ibn Abd ar-Rahman ibn al-Harith ibn Hisham from Abu Masud al-Ansari that the Messenger of Allah (saws) forbade the sale price of a dog, the earnings of a prostitute, and the earnings of a fortune teller.


Indeed, the Messenger of Allah (saws) forbade the believers from trading or earning from the sale of dogs; but he (saws) permitted dogs to be kept as guard dogs, for hunting, etc.


Sahih Muslim Hadith 3814 Narrated by Abdullah Ibn Mughaffal

Allah's Messenger (saws) permitted keeping of dogs for hunting and (the protection of) herds. In the hadith transmitted on the authority of Yahya, the Messenger of Allah (saws) permitted the keeping of dogs for (the protection of) herds, for hunting, and (the protection of) cultivated land.


Thus the majority of the scholars are of the opinion that there is no harm if one sells or trades in things which are used for the up-keep of dogs, like dog-food, harnesses, carriers, belts, etc.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
