Quran Chapter 5 – 96 (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-740) - درس قرآن 

Hunting in Ehraam

Surah MAAA-‘IDAH (The Table Spread) – Chapter – 5)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

96. أُحِلَّ لَكُمْ صَيْدُ ٱلْبَحْرِ وَطَعَامُهُۥ مَتَٰعًا لَّكُمْ وَلِلسَّيَّارَةِ ۖ وَحُرِّمَ عَلَيْكُمْ صَيْدُ ٱلْبَرِّ مَا دُمْتُمْ حُرُمًا ۗ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ٱلَّذِىٓ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ
96.  To hunt and to eat the game of the sea is made lawful for you, a provision for you and for seafarers; but to hunt on land is forbidden to you so long as ye are in pilgrim-garb (Ehraam). And be mindful of your duty to Allah, unto Whom ye will be gathered.
96.  ‘U-hilla  lakum  saydul-bahri  wa  ta-‘aamuhuu  mataa-‘allakum  wa  lis-say-yaarah.  Wa  hurrima  ‘alay-kum  saydul-barri  maa  dumtum  huru-maa.  WattaqUllaa-hallaziii  ‘ilayhi  tuhsharuun.            


Some more commandments about hunting the game in the form of pilgrim-garb have been described in this verse.  Allah Almighty says: O Muslims! To hunt the game of the sea i.e. to catch the fish is lawful for you in each condition even that it is not forbidden for you in the form of Ehraam too. Like this, if you possess any fish without hunting, on the condition, that has come out alive from the water and died after coming out, to eat it is made lawful for you. And it has been made lawful for the purpose that you, as well as the seafarers too, may reap advantage from this permission at the time of necessity in the condition of journey.

The entire ponds, wells and pits filled with water etc. which have fish, come in the group of rivers. Then it has been commanded again that either to hunt on land (wild game), or partake somehow in it, or to give an order for it, is forbidden to you so long as you are in pilgrim-garb (Ehraam). The aim to cause to know it is that only hunting the wild game is prohibited in the form of Ehram, whereas hunting the fish is permitted, though you hunt it yourselves or someone else (whom you have ordered) hunts it for you. This permission is for all times.

As it is forbidden to hunt wild game in the form of pilgrim-garb, like this, hunting is forbidden also for everyone in the Court of Haram (Ka’-bah) at Makkah, whether the people are in pilgrim-garb or wearing any other dress.

Some noxious things have been explained by name in the Sayings of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) that those things can be killed by everyone whether they are in pilgrim-garb or wearing any other dress. They would not have to remit any fine. Those things are “the crow, the kite, the snake, the scorpion, the rat, the mad dog and the wolf etc.
