Spending on animals

Q 1: I own some pigeons; should I leave them to fly and eat from fields and roofs of houses as people do or keep them in cages? What would be the case if there were also pigeons which do not belong to me?

A: A person who owns birds or other animals should first supply them with food, drink, and shelter. Then, they can leave the birds to fly wherever they want. As for the pigeons that do not belong to you, it is not permissible for you to catch or keep them in cages.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
