Q: If we have a pet (budgie) that is severely ill, what would be the best for us to do:
1. Do everything to treat him even though this costs much money that could have been spent on humans (one visit to the vet is about 60 pounds, with additional costs depending on what treatment they chose)
2. Let him live even though he suffers
A: You can perform euthanasia.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
