SNAKE
If you see a snake inside the house, warn it three times and even after it is in front, kill it. It is permissible to kill in the forest without warning. Breathless snake and two-striped snake with a black stripe on the back. Some people say that He also has some dark hair between his eyes. It is permissible to kill him without warning. To warn means to say to the snake, “Get out of here, don’t harm us.” The accident happened that, when the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was asked about domestic snakes, he said: If you see a snake inside the house So tell him, I give you the promise that Noah took from you. And I swear by the oath that Solomon took from you Don’t bother us, Even then, if the snake has returned, kill it.
According to the narration of Ibn Masood, The Messenger of Allah said: Kill all the snakes The one who is afraid of their revenge has nothing to do with me. Salem ibn Abdullah ibn Amr is in an accident that the Messenger of Allah said: Kill the snakes, especially the one with two stripes and the suffocated one, They both blind the eyes and abort the pregnancy. Abdullah used to kill every snake Once Abu Lababa saw them chasing a snake, He said that the apostle had agreed to kill domestic snakes. The origin of the belief in the killing of domestic snakes is the incident which is narrated from Abu Al-Saib. Abu al-Saib said: I was sitting next to Abu Saeed al-Khudri. Suddenly I heard the sound of something moving under the bed and there was a snake. I stood up. Abu Saeed said why! what’s the matter? I said this is a snake. He said what do you want to do, I said, I want to kill him. Abu Saeed pointed to the room in front of his house. My cousin lived in this room, he was newly married. On the day of the war of Ahzab He asked the Messenger of Allah for permission to come home. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) gave him permission and said, ‘Take the weapon with you.’ When he reached home, he saw his wife standing at the. So he pointed at his wife with a spear (intended to kill her), door The wife said don’t hurry, first go inside and see what are the reasons for my coming out. He went into the room, He saw a terrifying snake. He bit the snake with his spear, He came out with a spinning snake hidden in a spear, But he also fell and died. I don’t know who died first. That man or snake. His people went to the Messenger of Allah and said, “Pray to Allah and he will return it to our man.” The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: Pray from Allah to Forgive your man. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: The group of jinn has accept Islam now they are live in Madinah, If you see any of them, warn them three times. Kill him even if he is in front after warning. It is said in the narration, “Warn him three times, but if he is still in front, then kill him. He is the devil.”
CHAMELEON
It is also permissible to kill a chameleon. Amir ibn Sayyid quoted his father as saying that the Messenger of Allah had ordered the chameleon to be killed and called it wicked. According to the narration of Abu Hurayrah, the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said that killing a chameleon with the first blow has seventy virtues for the killer.
ANTS
It is makrooh to kill an ant. If it causes severe pain then it is better to kill it. It is narrated on the authority of Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: An ant has bitten a Prophet. The Prophet commanded to burn the ants’ burrows, According to the order, the burrows of ants was burnt. Allah sent them revelation. That you were bitten by an ant but you destroyed the whole ummah glorifying Allah.
FROG
Killing a frog is also disgusting, According to the narration of ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn’ Uthman, when someone asked for the order to kill the frog for medicine, the Messenger of Allah (saw) agreed to kill the frog.
It is still makrooh to burn an animal which is permissible to kill, Such as lice, mosquitoes, bedbugs, fleas, ants. Because the Messenger of Allah said, “No one can punish the fire except the creator of the fire.” It is permissible to kill an animal that is soaked, even if it has not been harmed, because it is its nature to harm, Such as the snake (whose condition we have already described) Scorpio, biting dogs, rats, etc., too many black dogs have this rule, Because he is the devil, Watering a thirsty animal is rewarding. Unless he’s not a sock animal. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: Watering every burnt animal is rewarding. If the animal has socks, It is not watered, it will grow its limbs and it is not permissible. For the protection of hunting or farming and cattle, if there is no dog, it is makrooh to take it and keep it at home. It is haraam to leave a biting dog. Besides, there is no other hadith. It is permissible to kill a biting dog to protect people from harm. It is narrated in other Hadees, Except for the protection of hunting and cattle, the one who keeps a dog will be deprived of two carats a day for the reward  It is not permissible to put more burden on animals than they can bear of good deeds. Whether it is plowing the land, carrying a load, or carrying a ride, it is not permissible to give it enough fodder. If he does, he will be a sinner. It is makrooh to feed an animal beyond its capacity and to give it food which is usually given by people for fattening. (Which means, forcibly feeding food such as hemp or alcohol, etc.) The food earned by the planter is disgusting, it is a lust. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: The earnings of the planter are polluted. Some of our companions have declared it haraam because it is narrated from Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal.
