Praise be to Allah and His peace and blessings be upon the final Messenger, his family and companions

As for bullfighting that is a custom in some countries, in which bulls are killed by a skilled matador using some weapons, it is also prohibited as it is legally impermissible in Islam to kill animals by means of torture with sharp objects being thrust in their bodies. This frequently leads to killing the bull, which is a brutal act and rejected by Islamic law. The Messenger (peace be upon him) stated in the Sahih (authentic Hadith): Description: woman was cast into Hellfire because of a cat which she tied up and did not feed, nor did she release it to feed upon the vermin of the earth.Description: Thus, if locking up cats is a cause for entering Hellfire on the Day of Resurrection, how will it be in the case of torturing a bull to death using weapons?

The council also declares the prohibition of animal fights that take place in some countries where they promote fighting between animals such as camels, rams, cocks, and others until they kill or injure each other.

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Creation. May Peace and blessings be upon our master Muhammad, his family and Companions.
