Assalamualaikum. I have been wanting to buy an Iguana for a while now but I'm not sure if it's permissible in Islam to keep them as pets or not.

It would really be helpful if someone clarifies this matter in a detailed and specific way.

  • It is a lizard about which there are hadith that it is to be killed. So I doubt that it would be encouraged to keep it as a pet. – UmH Mar 8 at 10:17
