Ask an Alim

Is it allowed in Islam to keep crow and raven as pet?

Q:

Recently i am fascinated by ravens and crows and i am interested to keep each as a pet and i even tried to do that but my father was not allowing me to keep crow in home as it is ill-omened bird. So i am asking about what Islam says it.

A:

Waalykum salam 

 
Thank you for your Question. 
 
According to the office of Sayyid Sistani, and Islamic laws, it’s ok to own a crow and have it in the house.
