      Here are some hadiths that report mohammed’s actions….

      Bukhari Vol. 4, #540…..Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar: Allah’s Apostle ordered that the dogs should be killed.

      Abu Dawud #2839….Abd Allah B. Mughaffal reported the apostle of Allah as saying: Were dogs not a species of creature I should command that they all be killed; but kill every pure black one.

      Muslim #3814…Ibn Mughaffal reported: Allah’s messenger ordered the killing of dogs and then said, “what is the trouble with them (the people of Medina? How dogs are nuisances to them (the citizens of Medina)? He then permitted keeping of dogs for hunting and (the protection of) herds. …[and for] for the protection of cultivated land.

      Muslim #Number 055…….Ibn Mughaffal reported: The Messenger of Allah 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.

      Muslim #3813…..Abu Zubair heard Jabir Abdullah saying: Allah’s messenger ordered us to kill dogs and we carried out this order so much so that we also killed the dog roaming with a women from the desert. Then Allah’s apostle forbade their killing. He said: “It is your duty to kill the jet-black (dog) having two spots (on the eyes) for it is a devil.

    • Paul you claim you watched the video you claim that the video did not discuss my claim. Here is what is in that video….

      Sahi Muslim 4018 “Dogs be killed..Umar killed all the dogs in Medina even dog belonging to a desert woman”
      Sahi Muslim 4021 “Enjoyend the killig of dogs, but grants a concesion for hunting and hearding”
      Sahi Muslim 1137 “Prayer interupted if a donkey woman or BLACK DOG… Black dog is a devil”

  3. The claim is this: “Why did Mohamed have all the dogs killed?”

    However, from the hadith you cite that is not true, as dogs for hunting, for the security of the heard [and for] for the protection of cultivated land are permitted.

    The dogs that were ordered to be destroyed appear to have been killed for public safety reasons at the time:

    ‘Allah’s messenger ordered the killing of dogs and then said, “what is the trouble with them (the people of Medina? How dogs are nuisances to them (the citizens of Medina)?’

    It is most disturbing that Jesus actually calls a gentile woman a “dog” in Matthew 15. Such racist hate speech would not be acceptable today.

  4. Paul writes “The dogs that were ordered to be destroyed appear to have been killed for public safety reasons at the time:”

    Where is public safety mentioned as a reason? The reason is given is that
    1. Angels do not visit a home when a dog is in it. (That rules you out)
    2. Dogs invalidate prayers and black dogs are the Devil.

    So where is the public safety?

    • Hillary For Prison

      Prophet Mohammed is not the first person to cull dogs. Dogs have diseases such as rabbis and other diseases that infect human beings. Dogs have been culled and continue to be culled from centuries to centuries. Dumb people like you who follow David Wood who does not speak Arabic and does not know Islamic religion but to select any thing that he wants is disappointing.

      Today, any dog owner is mandated to be sending his dog for rabbis injection and other diseases injection. David ‘Wood is not Islamic Scholar and does not speak classical Arabic to tell us the reason for culling of dogs during prophet Mohammed’s time.

      If a dog has rabbis and other diseases that infect human it is killed today. If dogs are infected with rabbis they are killed today.

      One mad cow disease had caused the destruction of all animals in a ranch so do not tell me destroying of animals is anything other than safety.

      You have to call your self Trump For Prison for his grabbing of MARRIED women genitals and entering into a dressing room of young girls who are beauty contestants to see their bodies.

      You are voting for such a man.

      At least Hillary never said she grabbed the private parts of married men or enjoying the body of young men. If she said that she would not be qualified. She did not say that. Donald Trump said so and women came out to collaborate what he said.

      Jesus Christ will not vote for Donald Trump who never repent but will vote for Hillary Clinton who repents.

  7. Great video.

    I remember a young Christian girl walking her dog in our neighbourhood in Indonesia. A group of young Muslim kids then came from their houses and started yelling, screams and throwing objects at the dog and girl. She ran home crying.

    Hatred for dogs is ingrained in Muslim cultures because of the example of Muhammad. I’ve discussed this numerous times here. It is special pleading based on western values of embarrassment that leads the Muslims on this blog to appeal to ‘safety reasons’ to excuse Muhammad.

    The authentic Hadith tell us that muhmmad killed the dogs because he believed the devil resided in them and because they apparently prevented jibril from entering. There is no mention of health or safety issues.

    I guess it isn’t much different from Muhammad believing the devil resided in Muslim nose cavities during the night- just pagan superstition from the seventh century.

    Muslims should be smart enough now to dismiss some of the absurdities of the sunnah

      The wisdom of Shariah, meaning of some idioms in Arabic in a specific context, understanding the Islamic jurisprudence about hadiths, how Islamic scholars understand law as whole is very important ,and it must be considered.
      This evil game that David plays for his audience who are by the most ignorant in Islam is a garbage.

      Your “all loving god” sent to be the perfect sacrifice was hanging out with his disciples to describe gentiles (i.e YOU) as dogs. This what it should grab your attention.

    • Look Abdullah, I find this discussion tiresome. According to your religion, dog saliva is haram, and I’ve heard Muslims say this because it is dirty and full of disease. I get that. But have a think about this Hadith:

      Muslim (280):” If a dog licks the vessel of one of you, let him wash it seven times and rub it with soil the eighth time”

      Why would you rub it with soil to make it “clean”. That is old Arab superstition, not godly wisdom. If saliva is unclean, then surely soil more so.

      Your insults won’t convince me. By all means continue to think that sharia is divine wisdom, but don’t expect the rest of us to accept clear pagan superstition for divine wisdom.

      Now, I better go wash my vessels in soil to make them clean…lol

      As Abdulla and others said; Jesus called you DOGS, DOGS, DOGS, DOGS. Why did Jesus not call you lamps of God? Why did Jesus not call you Doves? But Jesus insulted you the gentiles as DOGS, DOGS, DOGS.

      It means Jesus has negative things about dogs. You forgot that but to copy David Wood who cannot speak Arabic and cannot complete one full sentence of Arabic as your source of Hadith and what Hadith said.

      A Christian called me pig on another thread because I said the Bible and the Quran did not put any age limit on my daughter but both scriptures said if my daughter reaches puberty and is fit and in love I can offer her to any man regardless of his age even if he is 110 years old.

      I told Graham that, blaming the old people of “age limit” assigned today which was not there is like blaming the old prophet for not allowing “same sex marriage” which is a law today.

      Jesus said in Leviticus; Do not go near pig. Jews do not like pigs. Do you say Jesus hates animals?

      I will say both pigs and dogs have some diseases in them that can harm humans and so sometimes they are culled if the diseases manifest in them.

      Thanks.

      quote:

      jesus’ riposte, which equates non-jews or women with ‘dogs’ , uses a virulently degrading epithet in the ancient near east. referring to someone as ‘dog’ can dehumanise the addressee. Josephus provides a good example in his retelling of the story of David and Goliath, whose entourage derided David for using weapons that were meant to fight animals, not men.

      Goliath’s warriors ask whether David took Goliath ‘ for a dog and not a man’.

      David promises to defeat Goliath, and issues the following threat: ‘for i will this day cut off thine head and fling thy carcass to the dogs, thy fellows ‘ clearly this epithet is meant to dehumanise and humiliate Goliath.

      Imagine translations today placing the word ‘bitches’ on jesus’ lips to convey more faithfully the more degrading force of his rhetoric. jesus uses the greek word… which is neuter, but my point is that the APPLICATION OF ‘DYNAMIC EQUIVALENCE’ , which is OFTEN USED to MITIGATE some of jesus’ statements , also may be used to justify a more degrading term in English .

      As Tom A Burkhill observes : ‘And , as in English , so in other languages , to call a woman “a little bitch” is no less abusive that to call her “a bitch” without qualification…”

      “sharon ringe observes that ‘to compare a woman and her daughter to dogs IS INSULTING IN THE EXTREME’

    quote:

    Obviously if he calls them dogs, it’s a metaphor, but it’s not a nice metaphor. Dogs in Juidaism weer unclean, like pigs. There is no question that this was intended as an insult. Not even conservative scholars dispute this. I don’t know how it could be a *positive* metaphor anymore than calling someone a pig would somehow be positive.

    Within the context of the story, Jesus is impressed by the woman because of her wit. She turns the insult back on him and this causes him to change his mind. You should point out that in Matthew 15:24, Jesus says “I was sent only for the lost sheep of Israel,” and in Matthew 10:6 he tells his disciples not to go to Samaritans or Gentiles, but “only to the lost sheep of Israel.”

    Jeus seems to have been a Jewish Supremacist, not a universalist. He called Gentiles “pigs” and “dogs” and told his disciples not to go to them. The Gospels also never have Jesus going into any Gentile cities. Second Temple Messianism was about the liberation of Israel and *destruction* of Gentiles. It was Paul who universalized it.

    quote:

    Jesus began with a myopic vision: he was sent only to care for Israelites. The Canaanite “dogs” were out of his purview. But it wasn’t until he was confronted with one of these dogs, face to face, that he discovered, to his surprise, that they are humans too, and dignified, even in their despair, capable of greater faith even than the so-called “faithful.”

    He was tempted in all ways as we are, tempted to see the Other as less dignified, less worthy, less faithful, less capable of faithfulness, less inclined to tolerance. He was tempted to see the Other as Other, rather than as Self. At first, he couldn’t see his own people, couldn’t see himself, in her. But confronted with that Other, Jesus learned. He learned to sympathize. To sympathize with the enemy. Jesus learned.

  13. Many methods of Christ’s providence, especially of his grace, in dealing with his people, which are dark and perplexing, may be explained by this story, which teaches that there may be love in Christ’s heart while there are frowns in his face; and it encourages us, though he seems ready to slay us, yet to trust in him. Those whom Christ intends most to honour, he humbles to feel their own unworthiness. A proud, unhumbled heart would not have borne this; but she turned it into an argument to support her request. The state of this woman is an emblem of the state of a sinner, deeply conscious of the misery of his soul. The least of Christ is precious to a believer, even the very crumbs of the Bread of life. Of all graces, faith honours Christ most; therefore of all graces Christ honours faith most. He cured her daughter. He spake, and it was done. From hence let such as seek help from the Lord, and receive no gracious answer, learn to turn even their unworthiness and discouragements into pleas for mercy. M. Henry

    I say;
    You brought this same misunderstanding some months back and I corrected you but you are bringing it back.

    Pure sand was used in the olden days especially in Asia and Africa to clean utensils. Still today if you visit Africa, some parts of the population or poor who do not have money to buy metal sponge or anti bacterial soaps use pure sand to scrub their bowls very well to remove any residue of dirt or bacteria.

    The science behind our prophet saying sand must be used a number of times is to make sure any remaining bacteria from the dogs mouth is removed through several scrubbing of the bowl with pure sand.

    Paulus, be honest, dogs have so many dangerous diseases that can infect and kill humans and it is require by law to send your dogs for rabbis injections and other checkups and violations could land you into trouble.

    So, do not blame our prophet, God has seen all these at that time and advising our prophet what steps to take to protect his people from the disease that can be transmitted by dogs.

    Sand is used to scrub and clean utensils and through several scrubs any bacteria will be removed. There was no anti bacterial soap at the time of our prophet.

    Do not be surprised if certain part of animal is declared unclean because Jesus declared pigs and other animals unclean Mr. Paulus. Have you forgotten about that?

    It is not superstition but science, cleanliness and disinfection. Today Dogs must be constantly vaccinated by law to make sure the diseases they have must be treated in order not to infect humans.

    Our prophet at that time has his population and anti rabbis vaccine, anti bacterial soap and other modern health products were not invented so Prophet Mohammed’s God was teaching him how to use what is available to prevent infections from dogs and other animals.

    What is wrong about that?

    Paulus, it is unwise to read something from Islam and make conclusion without research or asking why is such a thing like using sand to scrub a bowl then rinse it to disinfect it.

    Thanks.

    but you do not find it persuasive to believe a simple explanation that sand was used to scrub and clean things to remove bacteria and the more pure sand is used to scrub and rinse something the likely for more and more bacteria to be cleaned.

    You concoct your understanding of superstition to attack Islam and I am telling you the Hadith is not superstition but as I explained because that is what it is. Arabs at that time and even today use pure sand to scrub things and remove dirt and bacteria. It is done today in some parts of the world.

    IN ISLAM SUPERSTITION IS FORBIDDEN SO FIND SOME ATTACK LINE BUT NOT THIS ONE. The scrubbing and washing with sand has to do with cleanliness and disinfection but not superstition please. It is known.

    Jesus said pigs and other animals are unclean in Leviticus please. If Jesus changed his mind it is not my concern. My concern is that Jesus said animals are unclean and that is true Jesus said that unless you do not believe Jesus is God.

    So, Jesus said animals are unclean and I do not care if he change his mind he did say animals are unclean and it is unwise to attack someone’s prophet for unclean animals like pigs and dogs saliva that might contain rabbis and require did infection.

    When bitten by dog and other animals today, it is required to clean that area, so said by the doctors and scientist before rushing to hospital.

    Why blame our prophet for advising his followers to do that?
