How should a person repent if he has accidentally killed an animal

Question:

As salaamu ’alaykum,

My uncle accidentally killed a chicken, or something similar to it.

To relieve himself of this sin (if it is a sin), what are the conditions, or requirements? He has been doing repenting and seeking forgiveness in abundance.

 

Answer:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما

Wa ‘alaykum as salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh,

This is not a sin because it was done by accident and things done by accident are forgiven in Islam.

والله اعلم

And Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala knows best.
