"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
