That looks like one MEAN cat ;) :D

A bit of a side question, are pets Islamically permissable? I was under the impression that only things like guide dogs and guard dogs were allowed.

at the moment we dont have ne pets.....coz baba doesnt trust us to look after them after what happened to all the others.....not that any of them were my fault :D

neways in britain we've only had fish :lol: typical and they all died

but in libya we had a little chick and a lil baby lamb :wub: a few rabbits (cant remember how they died, i think mine died wen it was pregnant neways ) umm a few pigions, my brother had a blak cat (i named it diamond but it was aka the cat ) but we had to get rid of it wen baba came to libya coz hes allergic we had two little birds one died coz it was too cold (we forgot to cover the cage at night ) and the other died coz it was too hot :( we left it on tha roof in libya while we went to stay at ma grandma's hous for a week we came bak and the hous was too quiet soo neways to cut the story short we found it dead on tha roof (it was ma bros fault coz he was mena b cleanin out tha cage and he left it on the roof ):(


so they're the only pets that we've had that i can remember :D....still dont undertand why baba wont let me have a pet....

Nopes, I don't have any pets. :'( I wanna get a cat soo badly.. Just not a persian cat. Actually, the good thing about persian cats is that they sit in the house all day, and you don't have too much of a fear of it being run over by a car. But they're real snobby..no offense bro Brown Clown. ;D

Yours is real cute mashaAllah. :wub: LOL @ the glasses.

I'll post some pics of my aunts cats...they're cute. :D Later inshaAllah..

awww, how sweet... nice persian cat..... i'd luv to have a cat but my mum has a huge phobia of them, no really big time she hates them she'll walk the other side of the road if its on her side. I dunno shes feared them since an episode wiv a cat when she was a kid. ;D We had a rabbit it was amber and had beautiful floppy ears :love: and such lovely eyes but it died after five years. It was called Mr Rabbit.... but we cud neva have another one after that cos when we bougt it i promised id clean its cage LOL and when it got home i neva cleaned it once! So my dad after fajr used to feed it and clean its cage rain or shine!! ;D So u can imagine me and cat, it spend nights wiv my dad (being nutured and fed) and id stroke it once in a blew moon!

I used to have loads of pet
at one time 4 budrigars
another time 1 dog
then finally 9 cats

but now I dont have any and I dont think I will be keeping any either.
Why ?
Well simply because I realized unless it is absolutely necessary (guard dog or guide dog) keeping pets only is an additional expenditure.
Instead of spending a lot of money a month on a pet I would much rather be giving it to a charity in a developing nation where the same moeny could be helping someone get educated and get some help.

Additionally why captivate poor innocent animals for our pleasure.

Eventhough there is no prohibition on pets but still my personal opinion now in life is no pets for me :D

Yes it is the symbol of ultimate sacrifice
when someone sacrifices something they love so much for the sake of Allah (believe me u grow to love the little goat so cute)
And after you sacrifice it you then share it with the poor and neightbours and relatives.

It is fard for Eid ul Adha (coming up in about 2 weeks I think)

Wow Clown, at first glance your cat reminded me of Hulk Hogan :embarrass
But it's adorable mashaAllah,. I love big cuddly cats that sit there doing nothing. And cats make grt pets cuz they look after themselves, so they're the easiest to take care of.

We had a goldfish once. Must've won it at the funfair. Anyway I came home one day to find it had died. "No no!! I will save it no matter what," I thought.
So I put a straw in it's mouth and tried to resusitate it. I thought I'd done it, when I blew into it cuz it swelled up. But all my efforts were in vain, so I gave it a wonderful funeral by sending it back to the sea via the toilet :phew

no i dont have any pets alhemdulilah,
i had a fish....once....in a bottle....... swimming
never fed it though cuz it was for science class and we had prepared it as a closed ecosystem thing where basically it will live on its own without food and stuff, then one day i was showing the bottle to my sis and i dropped the bottle :-[ i got scared and put it back where it was, it was kinda twirlin in there looking kinda drunk, i really felt bad...then a few days later i was like i forgot to check on it and i couldnt find it in the bottle! :eek: i think it died :( but i looked and there was a snail :anger: i think it took up my fish's oxygen, yes i blame the death of my fish on the snail and my sister cuz she was like "i wanna see fishy" i cudnt resist that!......:-[

i had a 3 baby rabbits once, they died too...
had a cute birdie....yea it passed away too

But he ran away because i went to the store with my mom and she left the door open and i tried to close it but she told me to leave it open and i tried to tell her that the cat would get out(I was 5 or 6) and when we came back the cat was gone i knew before i even got in the house because u could see his footprints in the ground.
I got another cat but had to get rid of it when my 5 year old sister was born
My sister had fish but they recently died
I cant have a cat because the place i live does not allow it:-\

He eats, sleeps and play by scratching, biting and wounding my hands! :skeleton:

There is a brother who asked if having pets are permissable in Islam, yes, it is, but with conditions, the best of them is to be able to really take care of them, they have no body except you, they cant even depend on themselves and eat from the street because you are keeping them in your house.

I also have a family Of Stray Mynah birds that fly to ma house, i feed them every time. Every 3 hours they come into ma house, eat some bread n they fly away. Its a bit strange for stray birds tht they are nt afraid of us. I also have stray animals that come into ma house, n we feed them all the time. Smtimes wen i meet hungry cats on da road, i feed them cat food. Its a bit like charity too i guess. I keep two plants, one's jasmine n another's rose, i name dem Veer Pratap singh n Zaahra Mayaat Khan :P,

Once upon a time Far7an had some fish, some were small, a few were big. The big fish ate the small fish, the big fish got sick. Some say it was the cold water, others blame the anthrax. (damn terrorists!). Soon Far7an was only left with one gold fish, and that also died. It was actually alive, but we thought it had died, so we stopped feeding it, and because we stopped feeding it, it died.

I like Bro Mujahid's fish better, he knows how to treat pets MashaAllah.

In my opinion, i dont think its nt encouraged to keep pets in islam. In fact if u ask me, i would feel that there is reward in it. It is much better than leaving strays on da road, n see dem dying in some accident. Furthermore, by showing dem kindness, god will reward us. But, if u r da type tht has no time for these little guys, PLEASE do NOT keep them. If u cant love dem, just leave dem alone. Becos animals have feelings too, they r like kids n want to be loved, so dont let dem starve. The only think which i feel islam discourages is abuse to animals n neglecting dem. Imagine, if one day ur mom forgets to feed u :-\
Its like that with animals, thats y if u cant take care, DO NOT keep dem, just becos they look cute.They r nt dolls Another thing, which i wish to add, DO NOT cage animals! Especially birds. I let ma rabbits run arnd, n i make sure their little homes are big! Like an ugrade ;) n tok to dem as if they are humans.

[PIE][/PIE]
I shall show u an article that proves that islam doesnt discourage pets
There is nothing wrong, as far as Islam is concerned, in keeping animals for which there is no prohibition on keeping them (such as dogs and pigs). It is reported that some of the Prophet’s Companions (may Allah be pleased with them all) were in the habit of keeping animals for farming purposes or for fun and pleasure.

It is reported that Anas Ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) had a young brother who had a nughayr (a small bird or nightingale). The bird died, and the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) noticed that the Anas’ younger brother was so sad and grieved, so he joked with him, and said to him words which implied approval of his keeping this bird. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said to him, “O Abu `Umayr, what happened to the nughayr?”

In another hadith, the Prophet (peace and blessings of be upon him) is reported to have stated that a woman is doomed to enter Hell because of a cat “which she neither fed nor let it eat from the vermin of the earth.”

It is clear from the above hadith that if the woman had fed the cat, she would have been spared from Hell.

It was also narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) was called so because of a cat, which used to accompany him.

Therefore, it becomes clear that keeping animals, so long as you do not neglect them, is something which is permitted and it may even be one of the means of earning reward, as the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, “In every living being there is reward.”

Yeah that's true. Besides that, its haraam to even play with dogs. (subhanallah).



The Prophet (peace be upon him) forbade keeping dogs as well as selling and buying them.

Ibn Qudâmah said in his book al-Mughnî (volume 4 page 281): “It is unlawful to keep dogs for other purposes than hunting, herding or farming”.



Therefore, a Muslim may not keep a dog except for a dire need such as protection if one’s house in a remote place away from other people. If a blind person needs to have a dog as a guide or for protection, then that would also be permissible.

A Muslim should not play with dogs. The saliva of a dog is impure (najas). The way to remove this impurity is to wash the affected are seven times, one time with dirt. It does not matter whether the contaminated area is a dish, an article of clothing, or the skin. A person who comes in contact with the saliva of a dog must purify the affected area correctly in order for him to be able to perform prayers.

Aww mashâ'Allâh your kitty looks so cute.. :D

Well, we've had 2 rabbits, 2 cats, 3 of those , 1 of this , lots of fish, and now we have a dog.. :/
My parents aren't muslim, and they keep their dog for pleasure, not hunting or anything.. I've never wanted a dog, but now I got used to it and I'm really quite fond of him now.. This looks like him when he was younger ->
Is it wrong of me to like him.. I mean, I still keep my islamic duties, wash my clothes and skin when his nose and salvia(?) touches me.. And he likes me the best out of all the others in my family, 'cause I'm the one who treats him the best.. He is so happy when I come home.. Sometimes he pees on the floor, 'cause he gets so happy.. But he aint that old yet.. and I love to teach him stuff.. I've taught him all the things he know, like: sit, lie down, give paw (i dont know what its called), bark, search, wait, no, kiss (then he licks my hand, my friend taught her dog to lick her on her lips, but thats kinda nasty :S) dead, find the ball, up (the stairs), in the room (when we go down the stairs to my room, then he runs in my room) and lots of other stuff.. he is so cute.. mann i love him..

okay i'll stop now.. but, i know islamicly it aint the best to have a dog, and if i didnt live with my parents i wouldn't have a dog in the first place, so im not wrong for 'hanging out' with our dog, am i?

I used to have a dog named Jack-- had to get rid of him for obvious reasons. Poor Jack is going through separation anxiety.

I had a puppy named Johnny of the same breed.. "Jack Russell Terrier". I used to walk home from work and I saw him living in someone's backyard and he looked so... malnourished. So I asked the owner if I could have him and she gave him to me, AND she gave me 60 dollars for me to take him! (OKAY!) So I took him a bath, and noticed he was bleeding when I would touch him. He had ticks ALLLLLLLLL over his body. Immediately I went back and told the lady if I can keep him in her backyard. I went back there the next day with a tick comb, some shampoo, and I washed him all up and took out all the ticks-- one by one. When I was tick free, I took him home to rehabilitate him because he was very skinny. I found a new owner for him and I heard he became plump and happy! Then he got hit by a car a month later.

I used to have an Iguana named "T-Bone"-- got rid of him too..

I used to have a fish named "Angel"-- poor fish passed on.. I had some other fish too, who had passed on due to fish-neglect.. To this day I still feel guilty. Astufirallah

I had a scorpian... I forgot his name-- Well, see... I was feeding him a mouse, and the mouse and him got into a pretty entertaining fight. Finally they made up, and ended up sleeping together. The next morning, the mouse got hungry and knawed at the scorpians stinger. So the scorpian's stinger became paralyzed and eventually he died. And the mouse... I set him free. He was a true soul-ja


Now.. I want a cat. I love animals. Insha allah I'll be able to adopt a cat from a shelter when I find the means.

yes, i am perfectly serious.
geckos are small lizards - the ones i have are from the southern california deserts. they eat crickets.
the scorpions i have actually were born in my house. there are a lot of different kinds, but mine are from the desert cuz i live near there. they are the simplest to take care of than any animal i know of. the tarantulas are also easy.
the snakes eat mice. i don't have any venemous species.
there is something about keeping animals that are real different than humans. first you realize they are not as different as you thought. another neat thing is that unlike dogs or cats, you can't tell yourself that they love you dearly. they could care less!
anyway, i like these "strange" critters. can you tell? guess that makes me somewhat a strange critter myself lol.

~Bismillah~

In regards to weather we can have pets mainly dogs is a big contraversal... some will say that it is haram and some say it is ok as long as they animal resides in a separate area of the home such as the backyard etc...
I personally have not been confronted with a surah in the Quran that says that i must NOT have a dog.. Hence why there is so much opinions on this... Brothers and sisters need to stop saying somthing is Haram when Allah swt NEVER said it was... for this is a great sin...and the Prophet saw as well as the people in the cave had a dog.. a huskie type of Dog...
