Animal Welfare in Islam


This pioneering modern classic examines the Islamic principles of kindness and compassion toward animals. It compares animal sacrifice as practiced by the world's major religions and highlights the ethical issues that the mass production of meat raises, advocating alternative ways to produce halal meat in an appropriate manner.

About the Author

Al-Hafiz Basheer Ahmad Masri (1914-1992) was the joint editor of The Islamic Review. In 1964 he became the first Sunni Muslim to be appointed as the Imam of the Shah Jehan Mosque, Woking, England. He worked closely with the charity Compassion in World Farming (formerly the Athene Trust), which in 1988 published the first edition of this book, "Animals in Islam".


"The rights of animals from the Islamic perspective. It also compares and contrasts with what other faiths like Christianity, Judaism and Hinduism say about the subject, particulary in the matter of slaughtering animal for its meat. Like all books on Islam, this one is littered with Quranic verses and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) that touch on the subject of animal rights." Goodreads
