Benefit: Angels Do Not Enter a House in Which There Is a Dog or an Image

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

The Prophet, may Allāh raise his rank and grant him peace, stated: «Angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or an image.»1

Ibn Taymīyyah (d. AH 728) commented:   

If dogs and pictures prevent the created angels from entering a home, how then would the knowledge and love of Allāh, the sweetness of His remembrance, and comfort with His nearness, penetrate a heart already fraught with bestial desires and their images?!2

[1] Reported by Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī from a ḥadīth of Abū Ṭalhah Zayd ibn Sahl al-Anṣārī, no. 3322
[2] Shaykh Abū ʿAbd al-Raḥmān Muḥammad, It‘hāf al-Anām.
