`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) said: Jibril (Gabriel) (PBUH) made a promise with the Messenger of
Allah (PBUH) to come at a definite hour; that hour came but he did not visit him. There was a staff in the hand of
the Messenger of Allah (PBUH). He threw it from his hand and said, "
Never does Allah back out of His Promise,
nor do His messengers.
'' Then he noticed a puppy under his bed and said, "
O `Aishah, when did this dog enter?
'' She
said: "By Allah, I don't know.'' He then commanded that it should be turned out. No sooner than had they expelled
it, Jibril came and the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said to him, "
You promised to visit me. I waited for you but you
did not come
.'' Whereupon he said: "
The dog kept me from coming. We do not enter a house in which there is a dog
or a picture.
This Hadith has an elaboration of the preceding Hadith and tells us that a puppy had entered the
house of the Prophet (PBUH) and he did not know about it. The presence of the puppy in the house obstructed the
visit of Jibril (
). It is a pity that now many Muslims keep dogs in their houses in imitation of the Europeans
and also display in their showcases photographs of animals, or their own family members, or pictures of their
deceased parents, or their mentor, or some saint for the sake of blessing, little knowing that such pictures deprive
one of the Blessings of Allah rather than bestowing it upon them.

Abul-Haiyaj Haiyan bin Husain said:
`Ali bin Abu Talib (May Allah be pleased with him) said to me: "Shall I
not send you to do a task that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) had assigned to me? Spare no portrait unwiped out,
and leave not a high grave unlevelled
Drawing pictures and raising graves over the height of a span are forbidden and their removal is the
responsibility of Muslim rulers. An Islamic state neither allows pictures, nor does it permit permanent structures
over graves, nor graves over a span's height.
"Leave not a high grave unlevelled
'' does not mean levelling them to the ground. What it really means is that these
should be reduced to the permissible height.
