Flying of kites

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q. I will like to know what’s the fatwa concerning the flying of kites. Someone said that they heard more or less to the effect that it was used at the time of the wars during the time of the Rasool (S.A.) where the kuffar used it to send messages across with them. Is it makrooh or so to the effect?

A. Flying a kite is permissible and is not Makrooh. There is no prohibition that is present in this, and it can be considered a sport or a game.

And Allah knows best.
