Keeping spiders as pets

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to keep spiders as pets?


A: Life is very precious. Don’t waste your life with this type of futile hobbies. Unfortunately, some white person has to start off something silly and we will want to ape him like monkeys. They don’t have a purpose in life. Their goal is vain and futile activities. Eventually, we also become useless liabilities like them.

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