    I don't see why it would be haram. I kill mosquitoes all the time even when they're not biting!

    Bismillah

    As salam alaikum

    If you haven't read the link, you must distinguish between what is potentially harmful, and what is merely annoying.

    Do the flies bite and could infect you or those in your home with disease?

    Could the flies lay eggs in your food and expose you to disease?

    Or could you simply open a window and they will fly away?
    Abu Shamah had narrated, via the Sanad of Abi Ziyad bin Hudayr, saying:


    "Omar said to me: Do you know what destroys Islam? I said, No! He said: A mistake made by a scholar, the argument of a hypocrite in writing and the ruling of leaders who wish for people to stray".

    I have been looking for an answer about killing insects. We have quite a few cockroaches (small ones) in our home and sometimes crickets and flies. The cockroaches do not harm us dierctly but are a nuisance and come on food and such. Is it permissible to use insecticides on them? is it permissible to kill them by one strong blow or smack?
