Putting aside the Islamic scientific proof that the earth is flat, or that Mecca is the center of the universe, the Islamo-centric information and cultural news portal Islam Online (of Doha, Qatar) has reported on Dec. 21, 2013, that Islamic Sharia Law proves scientifically that humans should never keep dogs as pets. Of the millions of websites on the internet, Islam Online ranks as one of the more widely read information hubs available world-wide.

Their wildly popular Ask the Scholar section tackles the age old question if it's permissible for Muslims to own dogs as pets.

House consultant Yusuf Al-Qaradawi takes a long distance dedication from Muhammad, in which the inquisitive Sharia-complaint Muslim queries:

    I heard that Shari`ah disallows keeping dogs without valid reasons? Does science support Shari`ah in this regard?"

Qaradawi cites "the prominent Muslim scholar Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi."

In what was described as the Sheikh's "well-known book," The Lawful and the Prohibited in Islam, the scholar of everything Islam cites an enigmatic German scientist in the person of Dr. Gerard Finstimer.

Unfortunately, with the exception of a handful of Islamic-centered websites also citing the mysterious Herr Doktor, there is precious little of any source of reference to a specific German scientist by the name of Dr. Gerard Finstimer.

What He Said...

Nevertheless, the proof of science supporting Islamic Sharia Law is paragraph after paragraph warning humans not to allow domesticated dogs to lick plates and kitchen utensils "clean" and then for the humans to use them at meals sans a run through the dishwasher.

Quite eye-catching was Sheikh Qaradawi citing the percentage of tapeworms in human digestive tracts.

Well, duh. Is that what they believe we infidels do?

I wouldn't let a human lick my plate clean and then eat from the plate... so if course I would not eat after my dogs...

That reminds me of a line from the movie Hotel Transylvania in the scene where Johnny is asking Dracula about the various things that can defeat vampires.  He asks if it's true that a wooden stake through the heart will really kill a vampire, to which Dracula responds along the lines of "well yes, but who wouldn't be killed by that?"
