as salaam, mufit saab
today i have 2 questions:
1. the seal skin socks. I have heard they are allowed. but my question relates to the killing of the seal. usually the seal is killed in an inhumane way. considering this, as we muslim’s we are told how to slaughter etc. added to this the seal is not carrion meat. they literally, brutally club the seal to death. Based on the method of killing will seal skins still be allowed.
2. my neighbours have cats that have become a nuisance. we have spoken to them but they are hearing us. we asked the authorities to come out which they have but yet they do not listen. the cats mess all over on my property, they causing damage to my roof cause the run a mock in the evenings on the roof. i have tenants and the cats have damages the car as well by jumping and scratching the body work. we used to grow our own veggies in the yard, but alas we cant as the cat poo and urine is all over the show. while I understand one must have patience and not hurt allah creation, but these cats, about 8 of them are a real nuisance. All the neighbours are having the same problem with this particular house they refuse to listen to anyone. i am now prepared to take drastic action to keep them out by which ever means possible. Am i allowed to use any means to keep them out of my property. This has been going on for the past 6yrs or so
