What is the ruling on buying and selling pets?
It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 13/37:
It is not permissible to sell cats, monkeys or dogs, or any other carnivores that have fangs, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade that and discouraged it, and because it is a waste of money, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade wasting money.
And Allaah knows best.
The Messenger of Allah (sal
Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “O Abu Dharr! If you learn one verse from
The Book of Allah (The Quran), it is better for you than to voluntarily
pray one hundred rakahs; and if you learn a category of knowledge
(religion), regardless if it is applied or not, it is better for you
than to voluntarily pray one thousand rakahs.” [Sunan Ibn Majah]
The reason that acquiring religious knowledge has so much superiority over praying nafl rakahs is because of the potential of much greater benefit to oneself and society as a result of knowledge of the Deen. The rules Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has set out for mankind are for our worldly benefit, as well as for earning everlasting happiness and perfection that can only be enjoyed in the Akhirah. Even if a person does not initially translate their knowledge of right and wrong into action, the possibility exists that they may do so. On the other hand, without guidance one wanders around blindly.
