Description - Animal Welfare in Islam by Al-Hafiz Basheer Ahmad Masri
This book examines animal sacrifice as practised by the adherents of the major world religions. It raises the issue of the mass production of meat and exhorts the Muslim community, particularly in the West, to tackle the issue of "Halal" meat in an appropriate manner. It also attempts to show the kind and compassionate Islamic teachings regarding animal welfare. Islam wants its adherents to think and act in terms of accepting all species as communities in their own right.
