Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1074 Are there any religious stories about rabbits, and are we allowed to keep them as pets?
I am not quite sure about what you are asking in your first part of the question. If it is regarding general stories of inspiration then I’m afraid nothing springs to mind at this particular time.

As for the keeping them as pets; As long as they are (i) treated well (ii) are not abused (iii) fed well (iv) do not create a financial burden on the owner (v) do not disturb or pose a threat to the residents of the home and neighbors, then Muslims are permitted to keep them.
