As soon as the workers spotted the pet in the eatery they approached the woman about the pet and she immediately left the restaurant. “This is not America. One should not bring their pets to restaurants as they wish,” said one Facebook user in the comments section. Another Facebook user agreed, saying, “It’s not appropriate to bring any kind of animals, not just dogs, into the restaurant.” Islam does not allow canines as pets but it does not forbid non-Muslims to have them as pets. However, it is not allowed to bring them to Muslim eateries.
