Dogs in Islam.

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Atoo, highly educated Muslims have the same goal

Submitted by Atoo (Canada), Feb 29, 2008 at 01:42

No verse in the Quran talks about hating dogs. It is just a tradition most Muslims have accepted.

Yes, Muslims are allowed to marry up to five wives with strict and almost impossible conditions. Since most Muslims can not satisfy the requirements, they end up with only one wife all their lives. Besides, Canadian law does not allow more than one wife at a time. I don't know about Hinduism or the Jewish belief but there are Christians who believe in marrying several wives. By the way, who sets the rules and who is right? God or humans?

There are some bad citizens in every society but Muslims in general are God loving good people. It is the conflicts in the Middle East and specially the Palestinian/Jew issue that has created all these problems.
