Why get a free web host and put up a whole website about it instead of posting in your local paper or craigslist??

Seems odd to me...

salam

Spelling and grammatical errors are usually a red flag for me...... That reply if full of them.

Do you not have dogs homes in Pakistan, where you could buy cute little puppies or get them for free?? Why have them shipped from the states???

Or are we discussing inanimate objects as opposed to yappy canines?


Wassalaam

 as

That email address has been all over the internet for years. Apparently they're based in Cameroon.

Do a simple Google search: ambefamily@ymail.com scam

You will find anti-fraud blogs with compilations of the emails people have exchanged with them. There are many variations of what they're selling.

There are also tips on how to avoid an internet scam: http://www.puppiesanddogsforsale.com/articles/Article21.asp

All the best  Smiley

Salaams,

Thanks guys for saving me from yet another scam Tongue. I was skeptic about the ad, there was this another advertiser who suddenly moved to Iran after my inquiry and asked me to send him shipping charges Wink

So I bought an Alsation pup 3 days back from a local pet store. The dog I had earlier was an Alsation male, this new pup is a female, i'm planning to get them force-married in coming September shadyguy

Oh and Jill (pup) is sick, seems to have caught flu. I'm trying to take good care of her so hopefully she'll get well soon. Duas would help.

JazakAllah Khair.

I thought having a dog in Islam was haram?? Am I wrong?

"Whoever acquires a dog other than a sheepdog or hunting dog, will have two qirats deducted from the reward of his good actions every day." Malik Al-Muwatta . Hadith 54.13

Al-Tirmidhi. Hadith 4102. Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mughaffal: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "Were dogs not a species of creature I should command that they all be killed; but kill every pure black one." AbuDawud and Darimi transmitted it. Tirmidhi and Nasa'i added, "No family attaches itself to a dog without a qirat of their good deeds being deducted daily, except in the case of a hunting dog, a farm dog, or a sheepdog."

Any insight would be great. What is the logical reason to kill dogs and especially the black ones?? Allah Alam. Just does not make any sense to me in a religion where everything normally does.

Thanks guys.. just curious and after reading about the puppies it brought the question to my mind.

I believe in Islam like the sun rising, not because I see it but because by it, I see everything else.

Salaams,

My new bike got stolen 2 years back. And 7 other bikes from my neighborhood were also took by thieves in same fashion. So I had to get a watch dog to protect our cars and other bikes! (We are a joint family, hence our parking lot is a vehicle show-room!)

Salam,

Just recently the subject of dogs came up in one of the classes i was attending, and I took the opportunity to bring up the above hadith that sr christine asked about Wink The shaykh mentioned that it was specific to Madina at the time as there was some kind of outbreak of Rabies and that dogs are allowed for 3 reasons: 1. guarding 2. shepherding and 3. hunting. Also, he reminded us of the Hadith about the woman who was a prostitute and out of her kindness gave a starving dog some water, and because of that act was entered into Jannah. So we should be kind to dogs!
