Flying kites

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is flying kites makrooh-e-tahreemi? If yes, what should I do with the kite? Can it be sold, purchased, hired, or given to anyone for free.

If an item is makrooh-e-tahreemi or haraam, does it have to be destroyed or can it be sold or purchased or can I keep it or hire it or give it to anyone for free or does it have to be destroyed?


A: Our ulama have discouraged this.

When it is haraam for you then it is haraam for others. The right thing is to destroy it.

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