Most of the times, I came across the festivals held for animals/birds fighting. These festivals are also held in Muslims countries across the world, so I wonder if Islam specifically allows or forbids animal/birds fighting.
These fights include dog fighting, Rooster fighting, Partridge fighting and many more. Most of the times, these fights include the bidding, while animals are hurt severely. How much strictly Islam forbids it? Any story related to Sahabas or Prophet SAWW would be appreciated (with reference of hadith or Ayah).
Are there any specific rules for halal or haram animals fighting?
