Question

I want to ask you about vermin such like snakes and other insects. If Allah gives me the power to kill it, should I bury it or leave it on the ground?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

The matter is broad in scope, because there is no text of sharee’ah which states that it is prescribed to bury them or that doing so is forbidden. It is better to bury them lest anyone be harmed or bothered by them. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessing and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
