Is the Hadith wherein Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) mentions one who keeps dog as a pet loses either one or two qirat reward per day authentic?
Yes. Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith. The Hadith is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2322-5480-5481 and 5482, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1574-1575)
See the meaning of qirat here.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
