Slaughtering in the house to protect the animals therein

A: Such a sacrifice slaughtered in the house mentioned above is a sort of Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship) as it is slaughtered to get closer to the Jinn (creatures created from fire) to avoid their evil. Thus, it is not permissible for you to do such an act. Moreover, you have to turn to Allah in sincere repentance of this practice. You have to be sure that none but Allah (Exalted be He) can benefit or harm a human being. Others can neither benefit nor harm a human being. This is because Allah (Exalted be He) says, Say: “Tell me then, the things that you invoke besides Allâh ? if Allâh intended some harm for me, could they remove His harm? Or if He (Allâh) intended some mercy for me, could they withhold His Mercy?” Say: “Sufficient for me is Allâh; in Him those who trust (i.e. believers) must put their trust.)” (Part No. 1; Page No. 63) Allah (Exalted and Glorified be He) says, Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): "Verily, my Salât (prayer), my sacrifice , living, and my dying are for Allâh, the Lord of the ‘Alamîn (mankind, jinn and all that exists). "He has no partner. And of this I have been commanded, and I am the first of the Muslims." Allah (Exalted be He) says, Verily, We have granted you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) Al-Kauthar (a river in Paradise). Therefore turn in prayer to your Lord and sacrifice (to Him only). Also, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, Allah has cursed the one who slaughters (a sacrifice) to anyone other than Allah. (Related by Muslim in his Sahih (authentic) Book of Hadith from the Hadith reported by `Aly (may Allah be pleased with him).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
