Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Angels do not
accompany the travellers who have with them a dog or a bell.
'' here stands for that dog which is prohibited to keep. Dogs kept for the purpose of hunting and
security do not fall in this category. Angels signify angels of mercy; otherwise we are attended all the time by the
angels who record our deeds for us. Bell in this context refers to the bell which is placed in the neck of animals and
rings when they move.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
The bell is one of the
musical instruments of Satan
Mazamir is the plural of Mizmar meaning musical instrument. It covers the lute, the plectrum and
other musical instruments. All these are used by Satan to lead the people astray. Nowadays these articles have
become alarmingly common. The matter does not end here. The public mentality is so distorted that they take music
as food of the soul. (We seek the Refuge of Allah from it). It can be true of those whose souls are overpowered by
Satan because one who lives in filth is so used to it that one cannot live without it. May Allah protect us from such
satanic occupations.
