Q 3: I have a farm
where trees are planted. Is it permissible for me to cut down these trees since they harm the growing of the cultivated crop?
Is there any sin on me if I cut them down for this purpose? Enlighten me, may Allah bless you.
If the reality is as you have mentioned, there is nothing wrong in removing (Part No. 11; Page No. 200) these trees if it serves your interest to cut them down, unless they are planted in the precincts of Al-Haramayn Al-Sharifayn (the Two Sacred Mosques: the Sacred Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet's Mosque in Madinah). In this case, you are not permitted to cut them down if someone else has planted them.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
