This is a genuine question. I know that in the Muslim faith, dogs are seen as unclean. But my question is - if a Muslim person lived with a dog in the household, as a pet indoors, just how would this affect their faith or beliefs and from the point of view of Islam, just how bad would this be? If the person followed other aspects of their faith, would they still be seen as wrong and going against the principles of their faith?
And, if anyone can tell me, just why does the Muslim faith see dogs as unclean, apart from it being written as so.
