Pets are our responsibility. Hence, it is permissible for us to care for them to the best of our ability as long as it does not constitute any form of cruelty to the pet and does not contradict Islamic teachings. Neutering or sterilizing a pet is permissible as it is not considered as a form of cruelty towards the animal itself unless the procedure is performed when it is still conscious. A comparison can be made with similar procedures performed on humans such as ligation and vasectomy which does not constitute any prolonged pain.
Hence, there is nothing wrong with sterilizing an animal as it does not involve any prolonged pain. It is also not a form of changing Allah's creation as it is performed with the intention to lessen the number of stray cats and uncontrolled breeding. What is forbidden is changing Allah's creation without any valid reason.
or premarital sex is a great act of sin in Islam. The person has to repent and
seek forgiveness from God.
The child born out
of wedlock is regarded as an illegitimate child, although if the biological mother
eventually marries the biological father. As according to a hadith narrated
Which means: "The
child belongs to the bed (marriage relationship)" (Narrated by Imam Abu Huraira)
As the child is
attributed to the mother and not the father, hence, the father is not eligible
to stand in as a wali for the illegitimate child during marriage. And according
to Islamic ruling, it is not allowed for the child to carry the father’s name,
and they do not inherit from each other.
Can we put the name
of a adoptive father at the back of the name of the adopted child by excluding
the word "bin" or "binte" in her/his birth certificate?
foremost, do note that the prohibition from associating the child’s name to a
non-biological and father extends beyond just including or excluding the bin or
binte. The objective is so as not to create a leading impression that the
child’s father is the man whose name is attached to hers/his. Hence, putting the
adoptive father’s name without the bin or binte would still carry a similar effect
as having bin or binte.
is also not recommended to put “Bte Abdullah” into his/her name as this may
attract unneccesary attention in future. Instead, one may wish to include just
his/her name on her/his birth certificate.
