Is meat halal if hunted in close season

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net



In our country(India) Hunting of wild animals are prohibited (Rabbit and Deer also included). Fine and punishment will be imposed on those doing Hunting. In my Native village i find a lot of rabbits and deer’s, if i hunt and slaughter animals(rabbits and deer’s) as per shariah, i would like to know is this meat halal or Haraam?, since i am doing against Law of our country.


Wa Alaikum As Salaam,
The meat will be halal, hence, you can consume it. However, it will be wrong for you to break the law of the country by hunting at a time when it is prohibited to do so.
