The sin for keeping dogs as pets

Question

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?

 

Answer

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.
