To all the fools who mention the story of ( the people of the cave ) as a reason that dogs are not najes (unclean ) , I have to say that , contrary to what you say , this story clearly shows that the dog had been tied down to the entrance of the cave and that the people of the cave had not taken the dog inside the cave to have it sleep next to them. so when they wake up and come outside the cave , they see that their dog had died and only it's bone had remained and realize that they had fallen sleep for a long long time. so , just because the dog is mentioned in quran don't you foolishly say dogs are not najes ( unclean). nobody can deny that dogs are very loyal animals and quran emphasizes that all animals should be treated humanly.
