الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

The sacred Shari’a has prohibited keeping or rearing dogs unnecessarily due to (Najs) impurity and noxious qualities it carries but in certain particular species Shari’at has given permission to have it for security purposes etc. due to some useful qualities. Further, no proof is found for the present day culture of having intimacy and affection with dogs, rather, it is prohibited from such things due to it being impure (Najs). Therefore without a proof and a valid Shar’i reason it is necessary to refrain from ignoring it’s dirt and filth.
