Cruelty Toward “Nejis” Animals

Balatarin

 

The strollers on this photo unconcernedly watch the scene of cruelty while the kids beat the poor dog to death. They do not seem to be willing to prevent the sadistic act; after all, the dog is “nejis/ najes”, impure in Islam, let it be!

 

For non-Muslims, it is impossible to find a suitable word to describe such a cruel act, unless one is familiar with the cultures where such animal abuses are practised. As divine purpose, Killing or torturing animals are the vicious rituals still practised in some tribal cultures, but this is not the case in Islam. Animals like pig and dogs are considered  as “nejis” or impure. The Islamic legal tradition has developed several injunctions that warn Muslims against nejis dogs.

 

Based on Islamic laws, a nejis body or object is essentially unclean, what can never be ritually clean by any means. No Muslim is allowed to touch a nejis body or object, it is ritually sinful. Dog, pig and non-Muslims are ritually nejis. There are other laws and traditions suggesting even to kill, torture and humiliate them.

          

Psychologically, since cruelty to nejis animals is widely practised or tolerated in Islam, it leads to development of violent antisocial behaviour, Kids who repeatedly torture animals can develop high levels of aggression toward people as well, what unfortunately can affect these Muslim kids to the extent of being the future jihadists or Islamic terrorists. This chain reaction cycle has roots in violence deep embodied in the culture of Islam. Such Muslim kids who are cruel to animals probably witness of suffering from domestic.

 

We should not compare the Islamic colonisation of the infidel world with those of the European Western colonisation. The indigenous people of these regions not only were colonised, but also forced to convert to Islam; worse, they were forced to abandon their cultures and grow up specific habits of oppressed peoples or have selective reminiscences of their own culture. Contrary to Islam, Western colonialists resorted to much less slavery, committed less violence and left indigenous cultures and tradition often unperturbed. Human relations with animals are hence adjustable to Islamic norms, not native culture. It is evidence that pet dog was common in ancient Persian before the invasion of Muslims and imposition of Islam in 7th.century.

 

The evidence pointsto muslim's hostility to these animals have been deliberately fostered in the first place in Iran, as a point of opposition to the old (pre-Islamic jihad conquest) faith (i.e., Zoroastrianism) there. No regime considers pet dog un-Islamic and banned dogs in public. In a society that people are amputated, hung, and stoned to death, this cruel act toward a nejis dog is considered as a warm up practice!

Dear Yolanda: They also view the "joooooos" and "bahai" as Nejis. I don't know if they consider Christians as Nejs???

Hi Faraway,
The blog said:
"Dog, pig and non-Muslims are ritually nejis."

Christians are probably included in the "nejis" category also.
OMG! Dog, pigs, and non-Muslims belong altogether to the Animal Kingdom! Wow!

The people who abuse women and young boys -- another abject topic called “bachehbazi”-- , under the guise of "religion" and "tradition", have no feeling for animals. Their attitudes denounce their own cult more than anyone else does. Suffices to highlight, not censor anymore, these facts and we will see the decay of the immoral cult soon.

By the way, Yolanda this treatment of stray dogs has been going on in Iran since the time of Shah and it is not unique to the current regime ! The city would come and shoot the poor dogs and pile them up on a truck and drove away ... nothing seems changed ... at least we as people are more conscious now. We take our time and write petitions and sign it something that was totally missing at that time ! That is a POSITIVE sign for a change to happen !

Then you should replace the current one with this and also include the link to the source as you idd below for us to read the description.... It is important cause we can then actually do something useful by signing the petition ... Thank you


(This petition will be submitted to the Iranian government)

Despite the teachings of Islam and the kindness that the Prophet of Islam showed towards animals (including dogs) the Iranian government have imposed various bans and penalties on dog ownership and handling, and, more drastically, a large campaign has been underway to destroy all stray dogs. The members of the general public in Iran have also been encouraged to undertake killings of dogs, and are even being rewarded for it. Many such inhumane attempts result in prolonged suffering for the hapless victims.
Many of us understand and respect the Islamic views on dogs and their cleanliness. However, as citizens with no affiliations other than to our conscience, we also value life bestowed by God, and consider sinful acts that inflict suffering upon animals. Therefore, we ask the Iranian government to stop any unnecessary taking of dogs’ lives, and refrain from causing needless suffering for these animals. We feel that the issue of lack of cleanliness of stray dogs and their presence in and around towns and cities should be viewed in the light of a larger picture of hygiene in the Iranian society, where not enough attention has been paid to other health-related matters such as general food safety, disposal of clinical and hospital waste, road safety, air pollution, contamination of rivers and reservoirs that feed into waters that are used for public consumption, etc.
We believe that the decision to destroy stray dogs in Iran has been taken as an easy choice and without any proper assessment of other possible options. In view of the gravity of the matter, we therefore urge the Iranian government to review their course of action, and show the mercy that was shown to them by the Prophet of Islam. Their on-going actions do very little for their image both within and outside Iranian borders. We sincerely urge the Iranian government to undertake consultations with animal welfare groups and societies both within and outside Iran to find better and more humane ways of tackling the problem of stray dogs in Iran.

در حدیث آمده است که در راه پیشروی برای فتح مکه، لشگر پیامبر (ص) به سگی‌ که چند توله داشت رسید. پیامبر (ص) نه تنها دستور دادند که کسی‌ به آن سگ و توله‌هایش آسیبی‌ نرساند، بلکه شخصی‌ را کنار سگ گماردند تا از این امر اطمینان حاصل کنند.
در اسلام بر مهربانی به حیوانات و ظلم نکردن به آنها تاکید شده است. ولی‌ به رغم تعالیم اسلامی و مهربانی و لطفی‌ که پیامبر (ص) به حیوانات و حتی سگ‌ها نشان میدادند، دولت ایران ممنوعیت‌ها و مجازاتهای را برای داشتن سگ و در رابطه با رسیدگی به نقل و انتقال آنان تعیین کرده است. از این بدتر آنکه فعالیت وسیعی برای از بین بردن تمام سگ‌های بی‌ پناه در جریان است. مردم ایران نیز در کشتن سگ‌ها و حتی با پاداش‌هایی‌ برای این کار تشویق شده‌اند. بسیاری از این تلاش‌های بیرحمانه توسط شهر‌داریها و مردم چیزی جز زجر و شکنجه طولانی قبل از مرگ برای این حیوانات بی‌ پناه و گرسنه به همراه ندارد.
دیدگاه‌های اسلام برای ما قابل درک و محترم میباشند. ولی‌ برای ما جان مخلوقات بیزبان خداوند نیز ارزشمند است و کشتار و رساندن آسیب و درد به آنان گناه محسوب میشود. ما به عنوان شهروندانی بدون هیچ ارتباطی‌ جز با وجدان خود از دولت ایران تقاضا داریم که از کشتن غیر ضروری حیوانات و به ویژه سگ‌ها دوری نماید و حتی با آن مقابله کند. ما از دولت ایران خواهشمنیدم که ناپاکی سگ‌های بی‌ سرپناهی که اطراف شهرها دیده میشوند را از منظر بزرگتری در جامعهٔ ایرانی مورد بررسی قرار دهد، جامعه‌ای که در آن مسائل بهداشتی نظیر سلامت و بهداشت مواد خوراکی، انهدام زباله‌های آلودهٔ بیمارستانی، ایمنی‌ جاده‌ها، ناپاکی هوا، آلودگی رودخانه‌ها و مخازن زمینی‌ که آب مصرفی مردم را تامین میکنند، و دیگر موارد مورد توجه کافی‌ قرار نگرفته‌اند.
ما بر این باوریم که تصمیم نابود سازی سگ‌‌ها به عنوان آسانترین راه و بدون در نظر گرفتن سایر راه‌های ممکن برای حل مشکل اتخاذ شده است. با نظر به سنگینی‌ و وخامت موضوع، ما خواستار آن هستیم که دولت ایران و دست اندر کاران کشتار سگ‌‌های بی‌ سرپناه را متوقف سازند، و همان مهربانی و شفقتی را نسبت به آنها داشته باشند که پیامبر اسلام (ص) نسبت به آنها نشان میدادند و توصیه می‌‌کردند. این عملیات تاثیر خوبی‌ در داخل یا خارج از مرزهای ایران به جا نمی‌‌گذارند و تصویر ناهنجاری در اذهان ایجاد می‌‌کنند. ما از روی دلسوزی صمیمانه از دولت ایران درخواست می‌‌کنیم که با انجمن‌های حمایت از حیوانات چه در داخل و چه در خارج از کشور مشورت نموده و راهی انسانیتر و مناسبتر برای حل مشکل سگ‌‌های بی‌ سرپناه ایران پیدا کند.

And I assume you, Mr. Rashidian, who seems to be an expert when it comes to Islam, exactly know that Dogs being Najis has absolutely no Quranic back up !

in Talmud perhaps but not in Quran !

JahanshahRashidian3

Jahanshah Rashidian

I agree that najis for dog has not been mentioned in the koran, but many norms and rules in Islam are derived from the Hadiths and Traditions.

Thank you and that is what we should stand up against. We should stand up against norms that already were in a society and continue to be regardless of the religion. If those norms are the religion then we should stand up against THAT religion but if the book is the religion then we should judge any religion based on the book and not based on the norms and based on the baseless fake hadiths which are more rooted from Talmud than Quran ...

I know it is very hard to fight such a ignorance and fight with those who actually believe in those norms and fake hadiths and see it as Islam. Those people are blind and they are following ignorance .. but what about us? Why should educated people like us not seek the truth and at least give credit where it is due !

Thanks for acknowledging the fact ! Please note that that the ignorants have created a new religion and many of their arguments have nothing absolutely nothing to do with Quran !

Very good blog. I believe discussing these types of Islamic rules/custom/culture sheds light on overall psychic of this cult. Issues like: circumcision, Mahram/namahram, najis, kissing the ground (namaz), fasting & etc.

AkaDarya is your typical Islamist brainwashed. She thanks you that you said this issue is in hadis

Thank you for your support, I will put more articles in this perspective and the your mentioned topics.

In Iran they do have dogs for doing police canine unit work! In this video by Press TV, the dogs are well trained.



Wow! The dogs in Iran are bilingual and understand both Farsi and English. It is funny that they called one of their dogs "Jennifer". I wonder why they gave the dog a Western name? How come it is not Fatimah or Mariam? The video also said that they got permission and special ruling from Khamenei to work with dog! Wow! The supreme leader has to make decisions ranging from dog training to nuclear program! That is a "lot" of work!

The video also showed how to rescue the opposite sex the Islamic way: a male rescuer tosses a rope to the female victim and then the male rescuer drags the rope with the female victim to safety! Absolutely no physical contact! Wow!

Thank you for your great blog!

In contrast to an impression expressed on this thread, the article dose not target Muslims, but the cult of Islam, to which many unaware people of our country and the “Islamic “world are victims. The cult has been imposed upon our people with sword and now we have right to timely expose it with our pens. It is time to do that.
I always defend the fundamental rights of peoples, regardless their faith and wherever they live: in Palestine, Germany or Iran… alike. It is important to realise that discrimination against Muslims has different backgrounds and different cultural and political motivations. I condemn Islamophobia under any form, as it is in my view a component of racism and xenophobia, especially in the right-winger milieus.
I criticise Islam as an unethical cult of violence and misogyny and the main factor of despotism and backwardness of our country and the very world of Islam.
