Animals which are allowed to hunt in the state of Ihram

Al-Haram “The Grand Mosque” lies in the Holy sanctuary of Makkah which was constructed by Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and his son Ismael (AS). Allah-Almighty ordered Prophet Ibrahim (AS) let construct a house which must be sanctified from all kinds of Shirk (associating something with Allah). Ordered was also given to him by Allah (SWT) that make sure the sanctuary for those who come to bow before Him in His House. “Witness! We offered the place, to Abraham, of the (Holy) House, (saying): “Companion not anything (in worship) with Me; and purify My House for those who extend it around, or stand up, or bow, or prostrate themselves (therein in prayer). (Surah Al-Hajj, 26)

In another place Allah (SWT) says in the Holy Quran: Remember! We made the House a place of meeting for men and a place of shelter, and take ye the station of Abraham as a place of prayer; and We covenanted with Abraham and Ismail, that they should sanctify My House for those who compass it round, or use it as a retreat, or bow, or prostrate themselves (therein in prayer). (Surah Al-Baqara, 125)
