Ibn 'Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:

I happened to pass by some lads of the Quraish who had tied a bird at which they have been shooting arrows. Every arrow that they missed came into the possession of the owner of the bird. No sooner had they seen Ibn 'Umar, they dispersed. Thereupon, Ibn 'Umar said: "Who has done this? May Allah curse him who has done so. Verily, the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) has cursed anyone who makes a live thing the target (of one's marksmanship)."[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

وعنه أنه مر بفتيان من قريش قد نصبوا طيرًا وهم يرمونه، وقد جعلوا لصاحب الطير كل خاطئة من نبلهم، فلما رأوا ابن عمر تفرقوا، فقال ابن عمر‏:‏ من فعل هذا‏؟‏ لعن الله من فعل هذا، إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لعن من اتخذ شيئًا فيه روح غرضًا‏.‏ ‏(‏‏(‏متفق عليه‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏ ‏

"‏الغَرَض‏"

‏ ‏:‏ بفتح الغين المعجمة والراء، وهو الهدف، والشيء الذي يرمى إليه‏.‏
