عن رافع بن خديج -رضي الله عنهما- أن رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- قال: «ثمن الكلب خبيث، ومهر البغي خبيث، وكسب الحجام خبيث».
[صحيح.] - [رواه مسلم.]
المزيــد ...

Rāfi‘ ibn Khadīj (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "The price of a dog is evil, the earning of a prostitute is evil and the earning of a cupper is evil."
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Muslim]

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) clarifies for us the evil types of earnings, so that we would avoid them and resort to lawful ways of earnings instead. The money earned from selling dogs, the money earned by a prostitute and the money earned by the cupper are examples of such evil earnings. Note that the word translated as evil here is 'Khabīth' and has many meanings including evil, malicious, disgusting, offensive, etc.
