Keeping dogs

Q: My question is that does having a dog in the house mean angels won't visit your home any more? I will be moving to a home where the basement is rented and the person who is renting it has a dog but this basement is separate entry and there is no way the dog can come to the upper portion. I am still worried as Allhumdulliah I am a practising Muslim. Please help.

A: If the dog is kept in a totally different section then this will not prevent the malaaikah from entering your place.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
