Animals are at the heart of many of today’s heated ethical and legal
debates. This paper presents a survey of Qur’anic verses and prophetic
narrations related to kept animals, and a study of one school’s application
of this evidence to the topic of kept animals. This ethical and legal
study will also throw into relief some of the mechanism of madhhabbased
jurisprudence and fiqh reasoning. This study serves as a basis for
understanding and applying Islamic moral theology to the numerous
contemporary issues related to kept animals.
