Muslims vs Dogs

  1. Interesting note from my days of studying angelology (which, natch, borders and sometimes overlaps with other, er, areas):

    In lore, It is said that dogs bark and howl when Sammael (“The Severity/ Poison of God”) passes by. Dogs actually have quite a reputation for being able to identify spirits of questionable nature. (And there is not a single entity more “questionable” than Sammael. Even the sources that say that he still works for God identify him as a very, very . . . . not-good.)

    There is a hadith (sometimes claimed as “false” these days but that’s mighty convenient for American audiences and possibly Taquiyya) that states: I heard Allah’s Apostle(P.B.U.H) saying; “Angels (of Mercy) do not enter a house wherein there is a dog or a picture of a living creature (a human being or an animal).” [Hadith – Bukhari 3:515]

    Sammael is also sometimes said to have fathered the first art critics. As funny as that may sound, if it’s all put together, it’s a wee bit disturbing . ..

    This text, along with some others, what part of what led me years ago to conclude that there was something seriously off with Islam and its not-really-a Prophet.
