Taxi Driver needs to read his Quran

Reader comment on item: Muslim Taxi Drivers vs. Seeing-Eye Dogs

Submitted by Louise (United States), Dec 4, 2010 at 15:24

Mohamad believed that you should not keep dogs as pets but he also states that they could be kept if they "serve a purpose". Clearly, they serve a purpose in this instance, all the taxi driver needed to do was to clean and wash the area where the dog had sat. Muslims respect all animals as creatures of God. But I think during that time when Mohamad was living they had issues with rabbies and wild dogs... normally your ferral inbred dogs are all black and those were the dogs that Mohammad wanted killed. We are again having issues with those types of dogs right in the Detroit area.
