Q: I have a pet parrot for years. I take care of his food and environment (cold/hot) but he is alone i.e. no other parrot is with him. I have never clipped his wings. He is very innocent and don’t fly properly. I am scared that if I liberate him, other birds or cats may harm him. Can I buy a female parrot for him so that he can enjoy some company. Is it permissible?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
