Is it permissible to climb a really high mountain without adequate equipment?‏

Climbing Mountain

Question:

My question is that me and a group of friends are going to climb this really high mountain. we have made it as a challenge for our selves. We will be climbing it without using any equipment. All of us think we can face the challenge. Obviously, we will be cautious.However, judging on the size of the mountain and not using the right equipment,I would say there is a slight risk to our lives. Obviously, if something does happen we will call the police, ambulance etc. Will it still be permitted to climb such a mountain in such circumstances?

 

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

 

Allah, the Almighty mentions in the Qur’an:

 

1) “….Do not expose yourselves to destruction and do good. Allah certainly loves those who do good.”[2:195]

 

2)”O you who believe, take care of your own selves.”[5:105]

 

From the above verses it is clear that it will not be permitted to climb such a mountain like mentioned in the question.

 

And Allah, the Almighty knows best
