I have one question and I hope I could be as
clear as possible. I have heard that selling or
buying dogs is Haraam, in the sense of being
in the business itself; or for example since
we have a dog in our garden and now we are
leaving the villa so we have to give the dog
away or sell him. So if we sell it is it
Haraam? I do know that dogs are dirty thus
they are Haraam but if we do not touch
them, and just leave them as guards, is it
still Haraam?

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.
As regards selling dogs, in principle it is
forbidden to sell, buy or keep dogs and their
price is forbidden. The Prophet said:
"Whoever keeps a dog, two Qirats (a huge
portion) of the reward of his good deeds is
deducted daily unless the dog is used for
guarding a cattle or for hunting. " [Al-Bukhari
and Muslim]; in a different narration
reported by Abu Hurayrah the following
expression is added: "…or a farm dog."
Imam Al-Bukhari and Muslim also
reported that the Prophet forbade the
price of a dog, and informed us that its price
is evil.

However, some scholars permitted
buying and selling dogs, and permitted their
price in cases when it is lawful to keep a
dog; their evidence is the narration reported
by An-Nasa'ee which reads: "The
Prophet forbade the price of a dog with
the exception of the price of a hunting dog."
Ibn Hajar said: ' The narrators of this
narration are trustworthy; and since it is
permissible to keep a dog for the above
purposes, then it is permissible to sell and
buy it for the purposes for which it is
permissible to keep dogs, and this view is
closer to the truth. '
The ruling of trading in dogs is the same with
regard to buying and selling them.
Therefore, keeping dogs, selling them and
buying them, and trading with them, [all of
these] are forbidden in principle, unless they
are only used for the purposes which are
permissible to keep them for, i.e. for
guarding a farm, a cattle or for hunting, and
there is no harm in all this.
With regard to the ruling of touching a dog,
we have already clarified in many previous
Fatawas that its saliva and flesh are impure,
but its skin and hair are pure.
Allah Knows best.
