    "Had Allah lifted the veil for his slave and shown him how He handles his affairs for him, and how Allah is more keen for the benefit of the slave than his own self, his heart would have melted out of the love for Allah and would have been torn to pieces out of thankfulness to Allah.

    Therefore if the pains of this world tire you do not grieve. For it may be that Allah wishes to hear your voice by way of duaa. So pour out your desires in prostration and forget about it and know; that verily Allah does not forget it.”

    It is only permissible to keep dogs if there is an actual need for them e,g. security, hunting etc...

    It doesn't say that in the hadith though...
    Besides, how can you keep a dog and not come into contact with its saliva? That isn't possible.

    AFAIK, dogs are not exactly Haraam in Islam. They are just not allowed inside your house.

    The Quran mentions that trained dogs can be used to hunt prey (5:4). In another place, it mentions a dog sleeping with believers in a cave (18:13-22).

    In light of above verses, dogs are allowed for guarding and hunting purposes at least.

    Both opnions are right on different levels.
    Each school of fiqhs uses their vast knowledge and understanding to come to the conclusion. Both opinions relying on the quran and hadiths.
    for example as a Muslim living in the west I can take the opinion that dog hair and saliva are not nijaas ie not dirty meaning anytime i come into contact with a dog I do not have to wash/purify my clothes.

    The way I see the madahib is like having the option to get home either via a bus, a taxi, on foot or on a bike. The destination is the same (quran, hadith, sunnah) but I can use which ever mode out of them.
