ANIMAL WELFARE IN ISLAM attempts to bring out the kind and compassionate Islamic teachings regarding animal welfare. The Qur an presents animals as a wonderful sign of Allah s creative power that should be respected as God's creatures and treated kindly. Muslims are also enjoined to be kind to animals through the sayings and example of the Prophet Muhammad. The Islamic instruction and guidance on animal rights and man s obligations concerning them are so comprehensive that Muslims need not go elsewhere for any guidance. Not to be cruel or even to be condescendingly kind to the so-called inferior animals is a negative proposition. Islam wants its adherents to think and act in the positive terms of accepting all species as communities like us in their own right and not to sit in judgment on them according to our human norms and values. The book also examines animal sacrifice as practiced by the adherents of major world religions. It raises the issue of the mass production of meat and exhorts the Muslim community, in the West particularly, to tackle the issue of Halal meat in an appropriate manner. -- Back cover.
