Q 4: Is it permissible to
burn dead animals
such as sheep and camels, (Part No. 26; Page No. 211) cows or beasts if they were found dead on the side of the road and people are harmed because of the bad smell?
Yes, it is permissible to burn dead animals if people are harmed by their bad smell because this will remove the harm which must be removed according to the Shari`ah. The one who does this will be rewarded by Allah (Exalted be He).
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
