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)

From the Back Cover:

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.

Modern advances in science and technology and the increasing prevalence of techniques such as bioengineering and factory farming have forced many religions to reassess their traditional notions of animal rights and, as Foltz demonstrates, Muslims are increasingly asking their tradition to respond to such issues.

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.
