UK: The puppy that enraged the Muslims

Yes, I know, this happened last Thursday but I had to comment on it. This is the puppy:

The Puppy that Enraged Muslims

The reason for this absolutely irrational and unreasonable enrage is that “black dogs are the devil“:

“Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of ‘Allah (may peace be upon him) said: When any one of you stands for prayer and there is a thing before him equal to the back of the saddle that covers him and in case there is not before him (a thing) equal to the back of the saddle, his prayer would be cut off by (passing of an) ass, woman, and black Dog. I said: O Abu Dharr, what feature is there in a black dog which distinguish it from the red dog and the yellow dog? He said: O, son of my brother, I asked the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) as you are asking me, and he said: The black dog is a devil.” – Sahih Muslim 4.1032
