The Lawful and the Prohibited in Islam
Cruelty to animals occurs during production, handling, transport, and slaughter in most countries where Islam is a major religion. Most of the people involved in this, such as those involved in the transport of animals, animal handlers, and butchers, are Muslims. However, many Muslims and Islamic religious leaders are not aware of this cruelty. Islam has also laid down rules for humane slaughter. In many countries animals are killed without pre-stunning. Many Muslims and Islamic religious leaders are not aware of the cruelty that is routinely inflicted on animals during transport, pre-slaughter, and slaughter in many Islamic countries.
A campaign is needed to apprise religious leaders of the current cruelty that occurs during transport and slaughter. There is considerable debate on the role of religion in animal welfare, with implications for the study of welfare for welfare assessment and for implementation of solutions to welfare problems.
In Islam, the law is a privileged means of access to the sacred. The demand for and production of authoritative rulings is one form of social expression of normative Islam. There are many published papers on how Islam provides an ethic of environmental concern and nonhuman animal protection [ 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 , 13 , 14 , 15 ]. Islamic law is most prescriptive in its insistence on humane treatment. Regenstein [ 16 ] cites several sources that stipulate the need to ensure humane and efficient practices are fulfilled, including edicts from the second and fourth Caliphs.
Generally, the killing of wildlife for any other reasons than food is always prohibited, as is the caging of birds, sports hunting, and animal baiting [ 8 ]. Islam provides considerable support for the importance of animal welfare. And cattle He has created for you men ; from them ye derive warmth and numerous benefits, and of their meat ye eat.
Surrah An-Nahl And they carry your heavy loads to lands that ye could not otherwise reach except with souls distressed: for your Lord is indeed Most Kind, Most Merciful. And He has created horses, mules, and donkeys, for you to ride and as an adornment; And he has created other things of which ye have no knowledge.
We have made animals subject to you, that ye may be grateful. Surrah Al. There is not a moving living creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you.
We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they all shall be gathered. Surrah Al-Anam Seest thou not that it is Allah Whose praise all beings in the heavens and on earth do celebrate, and the birds of the air with wings outspread?
Each one knows its own mode of prayer and praise, and Allah knows well all that they do. Surrah An-Noor We now have a view of animals that shows them not merely as resources, but as creatures dependent on God Allah. Animals are seen to have their own lives and purpose, valuable to themselves and to Allah above and beyond any material value they may provide to humanity.
For example,. The Prophet Muhammad pbuh condemned the beating of animals and forbade striking, branding, or marking them on the face. He cursed and chastised those who mistreated animals and gave praise to those who showed kindness;. He also instituted radical changes against the practice of cutting off the tails and humps of living animals for food. Prophet Muhammad pbuh was especially vocal in his disapproval of the cruel practices of notching and slitting of ears of animals and the practice of putting painful rings around the necks of camels.
Hadith: Bukhari. These examples clearly indicate how Islam treats any animal with kindness. The humane slaughter of animals is strongly supported in the Islamic tradition. So every one of you should sharpen his knife, and let the slaughtered animal die comfortably.
Islam has also laid down Other Rules for humane slaughter as indicated by a combination of Hadiths, including the following:. Animals should have a preslaughter rest, and be well fed and well looked after at the point of slaughter. Slaughter must be performed by a Muslim who is of sound mind, mature, and fully understands the Islamic procedure and conditions for slaughtering of animals. The knife must be razor sharp and without blemishes and damage.
The spinal cord should not be cut and the head not severed completely so as to induce immediate and massive hemorrhage. In others, such utterance is highly encouraged. The slaughtering implement must not be lifted off the animal during slaughtering. Any lifting is construed as one act of slaughter. Multiple acts of slaughter on one animal are prohibited. Slaughter the animal in such a way that its life departs quickly, and it is not left to suffer.
Restraining equipment should be comfortable for the animal. Further preparation and dressing of the carcass must be delayed until all signs of life and cerebral reflex have disappeared. Regarding stunning, Al-Masri [ 3 ] notes that stunning has been declared as acceptable by a fatwa unanimous verdict of the Al-Azhar University in Cairo.
Furthermore, the Muslim World League declared in that pre-slaughter stunning is lawful when the weakest electric current renders a nonhuman animal unconscious before slaughter [ 3 ].
Requirements and methods of stunning which are acceptable by Islamic authorities in countries such as Malaysia have been published [ 17 ].
Indeed, if animals have been subjected to cruelty in transport and slaughter, or to general cruelty, meat from them is considered by Islam as impure and unlawful to eat Makrooh. The flesh of animals killed by cruel methods Al-Muthiah is carrion Al-Mujaththamah. Even if these animals have been slaughtered in the strictest Islamic manner, if cruelties were otherwise inflicted on them, their flesh is still forbidden Haram food.
In summary, the main counsel of Islam for the slaughter of animals for food is to do it in the least painful manner. All the Islamic laws on the treatment of animals, including the method of slaughter, are based on compassion, fellow-feeling, and benevolence. Many current practices are not in accordance with the above teachings and may result in great cruelty to animals. Handling of animals before and during transport is often cruel. Some animals are marched on foot for several days.
During such transport, animals may lose weight and may be beaten unnecessarily. Many animals are not fed and watered en route. Animals—young and old, big or small—may be tied in twos and fours in order to reduce the number of animal minders or personnel on the trail.
Such tying results in injury and fatigue to the animals. Some animals are beaten and forced to move quickly in order to reach markets and abattoirs on time. Those that fall down may be whipped to force them to rise [ 1 ]. Similarly, needless suffering is inflicted on animals that are transported three or four days together in overcrowded, ill-ventilated, trucks, especially in hot, humid weather.
Harsh conditions also occur at slaughter plants. Animals may be held in primitive facilities without shade, and animals may be restrained by short tethers. At the point of slaughter, animals are often struck and beaten to make them enter the slaughter facilities. Many Muslims and Islamic religious leaders are not aware of the cruelty that is routinely inflicted on animals during transport, at pre-slaughter, and at slaughter in many Islamic countries.
This approach is bound to be effective in influencing the majority of Muslims in the livestock trade, especially the slaughter man in treating animals more humanely. This needs to be done by intervention at the highest level by religious bodies and organisations, which could be most effective in giving rulings fatwas on this issue [ 1 ]. A campaign is needed to apprise religious leaders of the current cruelty that occurs during transport and slaughter, for example by slides and videos. This should be done by competent and knowledgeable individuals who are also aware of the Islamic principles of animal welfare, preferably by Muslims in order to give authenticity to their claims.
The creation of animal welfare legislation, including animal transport and slaughter, according to the World Organisation for Animal Health OIE standards and Islamic principles. Government officials in charge of livestock, especially at abattoirs, should be sensitised to the concepts of animal welfare and how these relate to Islamic principles.
The OIE animal welfare standards, especially those dealing with land transport and slaughter of animals for human consumption, which were adopted in by OIE Members, need to be more strictly implemented by governments. The OIE encourages Veterinary Services to enter into dialogue with religious authorities with the objective of raising awareness of the importance of animal welfare and reducing animal suffering globally.
In order to achieve this, the OIE would, if required, assist member countries by providing expertise of Muslims knowledgeable both in Islamic Shariah and Animal Welfare.
To achieve this objective a campaign is needed with the help of animal welfare organizations and the World Organization for Animal Health OIE. This will greatly influence the majority of Muslims in the livestock trade in treating animals more humanely.

The purpose of this paper is to give another perspective on the definition of doubtful activities Shubuhat in the context of Islamic finance activities. This study used qualitative approach from interviews with experts in Islamic finance and religious scholars. This study highlights the synthesized Shubuhat definition from the previous studies and the contemporary religious experts. Therefore, the definition of Shubuhat has been conceptualized to Islamic finance in this study. This proposes a novel operational definition of Shubuhat from the Islamic finance perspective.

Дэвид Беккер и два оперативных агента тоже пробовали сделать это, сидя в мини-автобусе в Севилье. ГЛАВНАЯ РАЗНИЦА МЕЖДУ ЭЛЕМЕНТАМИ, ОТВЕТСТВЕННЫМИ ЗА ХИРОСИМУ И НАГАСАКИ Соши размышляла вслух: - Элементы, ответственные за Хиросиму и Нагасаки… Пёрл-Харбор. Отказ Хирохито… - Нам нужно число, - повторял Джабба, - а не политические теории. Мы говорим о математике, а не об истории. Соши замолчала.
Беккер удивленно посмотрел на. - Разве. Я думал, что он похоронен в Доминиканской Республике. - Да нет же, черт возьми. И кто только распустил этот слух.
