Because our Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) says so:

Hadith - Muslim, Narrated 'Aisha

Gabriel made a promise with Allah's Messenger to come at a definite hour; that hour came but he did not visit him. And there was in his hand (in the hand of Allah's Apostle) a staff. He threw it from his hand and said: Never has Allah or His messengers (angels) ever broken their promise. Then he cast a glance (and by chance) found a puppy under his cot and said: Aisha, when did this dog enter here ? She said: By Allah, I don't know. He then commanded and it was turned out. Then Gabriel came and Allah's Messenger said to him: You promised me and I waited for you, but you did not come, whereupon he said: It was the dog in your house which prevented me (to come), for we (angels) do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture.


Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever keeps a dog, one Qirat of the reward of his good deeds is deducted daily, unless the dog is used for guarding a farm or cattle." Abu Huraira (in another narration) said from the Prophet, "unless it is used for guarding sheep or farms, or for hunting." Narrated Abu Hazim from Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "A dog for guarding cattle or for hunting."

Let him knows his deduction of good deeds (with exception in that Hadith).

Jazakallah Khair

yeah, muhammad ordered all the house dogs killed after gabe didn't show up because he was scared of a puppy. tell your friend to kill that dog.

i'm kidding, don't kill the dog. unless of course it's black. it could be jinn.

muhammad held over some of the pre-islamic arabic superstitions. a muslim once told me if a dog, snake or scorpion entered your presence you ask it to leave three times. if it doesn't it is shaytan and you should kill it. for some reason muhammad was especially afraid of black dogs and thought them all to be devils. maybe he was bitten as a small child?

anyway you can search hadiths on

wrth medical point of view a disease rabbies when developed is i think the only disease of the world where the patient has zero chances of survival. This caused by the bite of a rabid dog. That s the gravity of its existance
