The seventh chapter explores animal-friendly teachings and practices in Islamic religious traditions through sacred texts, including teachings such as the sacred nature of creation, love and compassion, humility and submission, unity, vice-regency, zakat, and the afterlife. Chapter 7 also explores Islamic law, including requirements for animal care, wartime protections, hunting, and diet, including halal food requirements. This chapter explores the life of Prophet Muhammad and scriptures that describe Allah's ongoing commitment to creation and divinely ordained relations between humans and other animals. Chapter 7 closes by exposing the activist nature of Islam through the work of the late Al-Hafiz Basheer Ahmad Masri, and through the work of contemporary activists Nadia Montasser (Egypt) and Azam Siddiqui (India).
