I love this picture so much. Why? Because it’s so iconoclastic. It destroys the image that no dogs should exist in the world of Malay-Muslims.
We’ve been told since young how ‘unclean’ dogs are when in fact, the Quran (the central text in our faith) permits us to eat food caught by hunting dogs!!! So with all the contact made by a hunting dog (rubbing, biting, clawing), the food is STILL halal! How on earth can the dog himself be haram then? Only incredibly stupid people would think that.
I encourage all Malay-Muslims to adopt dogs from shelters. Shower them with the love you have for the ulamak. They are more deserving of your love…
