After a game-changing fatwa was issued by the former Grand Mufti stating that dogs AREN'T impure, we took a look at how awesome man's best friend can be...
Dogs have traditionally been given some woof justice at the hands of Egyptians and the Arab world at large. However, when a fatwa claiming that man's best friend is also Allah's best friend came out, we thought that that was about to change all of that. Former Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa claimed that that there is nothing wrong with keeping a dog inside your house as a dog is not impure.
Here are ten reasons we love man's best friend.
1. They Solve Mysteries
Where would Fred, Daphnie, Thelma, be without Scooby Doo? Not solving mysteries - that's for sure.
2. They find kids trapped in wells
Picture the scene - you're out for a stroll and you happen to fall into a well. Good luck finding a cat that will help you out.
3. They provide inspiration to our favourite rap artists
He may now go by the name of Snoop Lion - but back when he was cool, it was all about Snoop DO-double-G
4. There's a sex position named after them
5. They can dance
Here's a dog, but not just any dog. A dancing dog.
6. They play fetch better than camels
Have your tried to play fetch with your pet camel? Exactly.
7. They help the blind to see
8. They sniff out drugs
It's the weekend, you're ready to party but your "DJ/friend" (see: drug dealer) is refusing to answer his phone. Don't worry - your dog will find him.
9. They sing (sort of)
This video. The world implodes.
10. They provide a great conversation starter
Cute member of the opposite sex: "Awww isn't he cute! What breed is he?" Bam. You've got a date.
