Reader comment on item: Destroying Sculptures of Muhammad
in response to reader comment: dogs and angels

Submitted by B. Williame (Belgium), Apr 23, 2008 at 05:08

Thank you for clearing some things up for me.

I wonder why dogs are unclean, but I suppose that's an answer only Mohammed possibly woud be able to give...

Also, if an angel stays out of a house where there are creatures (dogs) or pictures of those with souls, then why doesn't this not apply to humans? I thought we have souls as well?

But, ok, if angels don't have fear or so with dogs, then why would they remain outside?

Aren't dogs also creatures created by Allah(pbuh)?

true you being an Iman doesn't mean your do or don't have right of an opinion. Still, being one gives you some form of authority about your religion, much more than the simple followers in general.

thanks for your response
