Taxidermy (stuffing dead animals)

Q: Is Taxidermy permissible (the process of preserving & stuffing a dead animal) for display purposes?

Bismillaah

A: There are conflicting views of our ulama in this respect. When there are conflicting opinions it is best to refrain.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
