I was wondering if we are allowed to keep monkeys as pets. Are they considered Najis? Even if they are najis, we can still keep them, right, as long as we don't get their hair on us, right?

I don't think I'll be getting a monkey anytime in the near future... But I see other people keep them as pets, and I was just wondering.

Thanks :)

Why in the world would anyone want a pet monkey? Why not just have or adopt a child. A monkey will behave much like a child, but will never grow up. Plus unless you get it spayed or neutered, you will have a frustrated animal once it reaches adulthood. I just don't think its very kind to keep a wild animal as a pet. If they have been stolen from the wild, they should be rehabilitated and released if possible. If they can't be rehabilitated and released, they are better off in zoos or wild animal sanctuaries. Pets should come from those animals which have been domesticated for thousands of years, like cats, dogs, or chickens, for example.

I suppose, though, if you had a reason to keep a monkey - sometimes they are trained as service animals - that would be fine, and you would just need to be attentive to the najisat.

Did ya'll miss the part where I said I don't think I'll be getting one? lol... I only asked because on CNN the other day I saw a woman who owns two pet monkeys... I was just curious. I also believe it's cruel to keep wild animals as pets. But in some cultures I think it's been practised, like in India maybe during the Moghul era? Or maybe I'm just thinking about Disney's Alladin, I don't know....

(salam) i watched a documentary which showed a certain indigenous tribe in the Amazon and the custom among the old women was to have a pet monkey to hang out with and sleep with. also, as far as najas rulings on animals go, keep in mind even if an animal is najas that doesn't prohibit involvement with it or keeping it in the house just in the same way as many work professions that demand physical labor and cleaning involved najas things but that isn't prohibited. contact with najasah is not haram it merely means one needs to wash the affected area before prayer.

True..as brother @Director said..Yazeed ibn Mu'awiya (LA) used to entertain himself and play with monkeys...

But anyways, monkeys are weird pets (my opinion)..They're like another human in the house. Plus, they can be pretty dangerous as well:)

Hope everyone is safe and healthy during these times. May God keep all of us safe.

I pray that this pandemic end soon. God willing.

From me, a truth seeker.

The name of Yezid's special monkey was Abu Muflis. When Abu Muflis died, Yezid was so saddened that it was declared as national mourning time. 

ُThe actions and thoughts of Yazid are stupid, he is an idiot, it's laughable to see him make everyone mourn the death of a monkey, but if a person cries or shows empathy or sorrow for the grandson of Prophet Mohammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) he should be killed, jailed, ashamed, or whatever he did to the lovers of Ahl Al-Bayt. The fact there are people trying to defend his actions makes it worse. In this day and age, thinking that Yazid is a good person and trying to defend him is being just as stupid, you can look up the sins he's committed.
