Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1070 Are we allowed to touch dogs? Or what if a dog comes up to us and touches us, what does Shariah saying about this?
Shariah does not forbid touching dogs, however if it can be avoided then it should, due to cleanliness. It is important to remember that if a dog that is dry comes up to you and rubs against your clothes then it will not cause you clothes to become Napaak (unclean). However if the dog is wet or the saliva from it mouth touch the clothes then the clothes will become unclean.
