Is it permissible to fish using live bait?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
It is not permissible to fish using live bait as this causes undue pain and suffering to the creature.
You may use artificial bait as an alternative to live bait.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
