عن جابر بن عبد الله قال: «نَهى رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- أنْ يُقتل شيء مِن الدَّواب صَبْرا».
[صحيح.] - [رواه مسلم.]
المزيــد ...

Jābir ibn ‘Abdullāh (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) forbade killing an animal by tying it up and taking aim at it.

Explanation

This Hadīth forbids killing animals by tying them up and making them targets for shooting (which is called Sabr). This action involves torturing the animal, taking its life in vain, wasting its monetary value, and missing the chance to slaughter it in a lawful manner (for food). So, for these harms and for the lack of benefit in killing it in this manner, it is forbidden to tie it up and take aim at it to kill it; and forbiddance entails prohibition.
