Product description

Review

"For those who wish to learn about animal rights and Islam, but who are beginners when it comes to either or both, this will be an interesting book and an easy read." (American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences)

"Drawing on a wide range of sources, including classic texts in philosophy, literature and mysticism, Foltz traces the development of Islamic attitudes towards animals over the centuries and confronts some of the key ethical questions facing Muslims today." (Concordia Journal)

"Foltz's book encapulates, in a very brief and handy volume, most of the available information about animals in Islam." (Eco Islam)

--Positive review in the magazine of the Danish Vegetarian Society, it is written in Danish. (Vegetaren)

"This book endeavours to enlighten and inform the reader about the place of animals in Islam" (Muslim World Book Review)

Article "For Pet's Sake: A religious debate on whether there's an afterlife for animals" mentions the books and discusses some of Foltz views. (Newsday.com)

"A thoroughly researched and comprehensive study on Islam and Animal Welfare." (Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics)

Review

A marvellous piece of research, this book will help those interested in animals learn about Islam, and those familiar with Islam probe into the animal realm." (Christopher Key Chapple - Professor of theological Studies, Loyola Marymount University)

"No work does so much to bring the reader abreast of human-animal relations in the Muslim world, or does so with such a combination of scholarship, sympathy, and bold critique." (Richard Bulliet - Professor of History, Columbia University; author of The Camel and the Wheel)

"A marvellous piece of research, this book will help those interested in animals learn about Islam, and those familiar with Islam probe into the animal realm." (Christopher Key Chapple - Professor of theological Studies, Loyola Marymount University)
