Is this permissible because kittens are too much effort to take care off
If a question doesn’t get answered in some time, it means four things:
1) It is on our list to be asked directly to Ghamidi Sahab
2) It is too basic to be answered
3) It is beyond our competence to be answered by us
4) A scholar will answer it considering his ease
Which category do you think this one belongs to ?
Hopefully number 4 but I’m scared it’s number 2
Its on the list
but at the same time, I refrain from giving opinions which I think are more beneficial if come from a scholar directly or from Ghamidi Sahab himself.
In recent Q&A Session with Ghamidi Sahab on Questions selected from ASK GHAMIDI Platform:
For answer to your question, please refer to the video below from 1:14:11 to 1:15:27
Does this apply to the original question because we don’t keep cats for their meat rather the only reason for neutering would be not to have kittens because it’s hard to keep them.
Response by Hassan Ilyas sahab:
So the question is- when these animals have been given to us as a means of use for food snd clothing etc- is keeping them as pets a thing that is allowed because they are made for us to use it does it come under zulm as we are taking them out of their natural habitat?
And then on top of this- taking away this desire and body part of theirs not for an increase in quality of meat or milk, but simply to make it easier to keep them as a pet- is this zulm?
Most of the people , we see around keep dogs and cats indoor all their lives, as prisoners, where they take away their right of being socialize and have families, just for their pleasure and deal their loneliness, which results in most the time their pet’s ended with many mental and health issues but they don’t care, people sell small kittens and puppies for money,and don’t realize that how they hurting mothers by separating their kids from them, not for food but for greed. Hurting animals are not allowed at all in islam . The reality of life is one is food for another, that doesn’t allow us to change nature, after messing up with nature for long, man realizes then, oh I was wrong…I have done mistake. So I think let it be the Allah’s way which is best way.
Cats are not attached to their kittens and sometimes even kill them. After around 8 weeks they are weaned and ready to roam free. Dogs may be different but cats are lone animals for the most part. If they didn’t want to stay with us they could easily run away
I’m sorry to say this is not correct, we can then apply same logic to humans. Mothers always protect and fight for their kids, we see them how they are protective, and I have seen how sadden they get after separation, they go under depression. And also I have seen many dogs and cats families living happily safe life where people don’t keep separate them, So your claim with due respect doesn’t justify it, if Allah their creator and owner has blessed them with something, then who are we to deprive them from that blessing. This is my opinion, and you may have your opinion.
You can search it on google- I’m not making stuff up
