Benefit: It was reported by Abdullaah Ibn Saamit, that Aboo Dhar said, that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said: “If any of you wish to perform Salaah, he is indeed shielded, if he has, in-front-of him, something the size of the rear end of a camel’s saddle, in-front-of him, however, then (the passing of) a donkey, a woman or a black dog can invalidate his Salaah.”

I said: “Oh Aboo Dhar! What is it with a black dog as opposed to a red or yellow dog?” He said: Oh my son of my brother! I asked the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) just as you have asked me, and he said: “A black dog is shaytaan”. [Muslim]

And in another version it states: “Salaah is repeated due to the passing of a donkey, a woman or a black dog”. [Ibn Khuzaymah]
