There is a person who wants to start raising livestock but he needs to put wheat in the animal feed so that they will produce milk and some other things. Is that permissible?.
Praise be to Allaah.
There is no reason in sharee’ah why he should not feed wheat
to livestock. The basic principle concerning food is that it is permissible
unless there is evidence to the contrary, as is stated in the principles of
fiqh that are well known to the scholars.
This is as far as the principle is concerned. But if there is
some harm that will result from feeding wheat to the livestock, such as if
people are in need of this wheat as one of their basic needs, and there is
no surplus of wheat to feed the livestock, then in that case it is haraam
because of the harm that will be done to the people, and the livestock
should be fed something other than wheat.
