Book Title:Islamic Concern for Animals
Author(s):Masri, Al-Hafiz
Publisher Name:The Athene Trust
Place of Publication:Petersfield, Hants, England
Date of Publication:1987
Annotation:While lamenting the fact that scripture in all religions has ceased to be taken seriously, Masri utilizes Qur’an and Hadiths extensively. Drawing particular attention to animal consciousness, Masri suggests that animal consciousness, although not like human consciousness, significantly more than simply instinct and intuition. Masri also elaborates on other important concepts such as the “homogeneous organism” of life and “joint tenancy.” This text is provided in both English and Arabic.
