Are dogs impure

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4102 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mughaffal

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "No family attaches itself to a dog without a ‘qirat’ of their good deeds being deducted daily, except in the case of a hunting dog, a farm dog, or a sheepdog."


Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 1.13a

Dogs are considered impure in Islam. Any container that a dog has licked must be washed seven times, the first time with dirt. Abu Hurairah reported that the Messenager of Allah (saws) said, "Purifying a container that a dog has licked is done by washing it seven times, the first washing being with dirt (that is, water mixed with dirt until it becomes muddy)."

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 227 Narrated by Ali ibn AbuTalib

The Prophet (saws) said: ‘Angels do not enter the house where there is a picture, or a dog.’


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


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
