FREE BOOKS BY KRISTEN STILT

Islamic Law & Animals
kristenStilt2


Animal Welfare in Islamic Law is now available free in both English and Arabic. It consists of 48 medium-sized pages. The book serves as a guide in matters related to ideal treatment of animals in daily life. Likewise it serves as a reminder to people of the divine rules and the fine human values that Islam calls for in treatment of animals. “In my studies of Islamic law, I have always been impressed by the extensive rules that require humans to treat animals kindly and with mercy.

These rules are wide ranging, and include significant protections for work animals like horses and donkeys, requirements that slaughtering be done in the absolutely merciful way as possible, and commands to treat dogs and cats kindly in all situations. The position on animal welfare within Islamic law is an excellent example of compassion and concern for those who depend on others for their care. Islamic legal protection of animal welfare is truly a model for everyone, and if these protective rules were applied world wide, the amount of animal suffering would be radically reduced and the situation for animals would be tremendously better.”—From the Introduction,
Animal Welfare in Islamic Law.
