God’s Amazing Creature: Dog

Cont’d from page 3

Therapy Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. They just need to be well-behaved and friendly. "They have a sixth sense.  If you're sick, they want to lay down next to you and give you love."  Therapy Dogs like Molly and Scooter are treatment in a huggable form.

Training is one of the most important aspects of raising a dog. Training serves to strengthen the bond between a dog and his owner. It builds communication, understanding, and mutual respect.  Training also gives the dog owner the voice control necessary to prevent numerous potential tragedies.  A well-behaved, trained dog is a pleasure to own. Dog training truly benefits us; an example is given in the Quran.

[5:4] They consult you concerning what is lawful for them; say, "Lawful for you are all good things, including what trained dogs and falcons catch for you." You train them according to GOD's teachings. You may eat what they catch for you, and mention GOD's name thereupon. You shall observe GOD. GOD is most efficient in reckoning.

Sadly, in traditional Islam, dogs are considered dirty animals based on so-called hadith falsely attributed to the prophet. The majority of Muslims fail to understand that hadiths are not the words of the prophet. Additionally, they fail to understand that the Quran is the only hadith of the prophet that was sent down to him from God.

[45:6] These are GOD's revelations that we recite to you truthfully. In which Hadith other than GOD and His revelations do they believe?

[16:116] You shall not utter lies with your own tongues stating: "This is lawful, and

this is unlawful," to fabricate lies and attribute them to GOD. Surely, those who fabricate lies and attribute them to GOD will never succeed.

[6:19] Say, "Whose testimony is the greatest?" Say, "GOD's. He is the witness between me and you that this Quran has been inspired to me, to preach it to you and whomever it reaches. Indeed, you bear witness that there are other gods beside GOD." Say, "I do not testify as you do; there is only one god, and I disown your idolatry."

[6:114] Shall I seek other than GOD as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed? Those who received the scripture recognize that it has been revealed from your Lord, truthfully. You shall not harbor any doubt.

[10:59] Say, "Did you note how GOD sends down to you all kinds of provisions, then you render some of them unlawful, and some lawful?" Say, "Did GOD give you permission to do this? Or, do you fabricate lies and attribute them to GOD?"

May God guide all of us.
