Islam has no strong prohibition against hunting, so long as the animal is killed to provide food and not just for fun. The Quran teaches that God created both humans and animals, and that animals exist for the benefit of humans but also that they must be treated with kindness and compassion.

The prophet Muhammad is quoted as saying: "Whoever kills a sparrow or anything bigger than that without a just cause, Allah will hold him accountable on the day of judgment."

(Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1108)
