Title: Electric racquet to kill insects


There is an outbreak of mosquitoes in our area. Spraying them does not seem to work. We have been advised to use an Electric racquet to kill them. Is this permissible? 


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible to use an electric racquet to kill insects.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
