About the book

Description : From references to animals in the Qu’ran to modern-day websites on Islamic vegetarianism, Richard C. Foltz presents the first comprehensive study of the role of animals in the Islamic tradition. Drawing on a wide range of sources, including classic mysticism, Foltz traces the development of Islamic attitudes towards animals over the centuries and confronts the key ethical questions facing Muslims today. Scholarly yet accessible, this is an original and informative contribution to Islamic studies, and will be essential reading for anyone, Muslim or non-Muslim, with an interest in the significance of religion and culture for the contemporary animal rights debate. Contents : Introduction: Islam, Muslims, and Non-Human Animals • Animals in Islamic Source Texts • Animals in Islamic Law • Animals in Philosophy and Science • Animals in Literature and Art • Contemporary Muslim Views on Animal Rights • Towards an Islamic Vegetarianism • Muslim Attitudes towards Dogs • Conclusions
