There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth nor a being that flies on its wings, but they are communities like you. Nothing have we omitted from the Book, and they shall be gathered to their Rabb (Lord) in the end.

Qur’an 6:38

Seest thou not that it I God whose praise all beings in 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 God knows well all that they do.

Qur’an 24:11

Oh believers! Eat what We have provided for you of lawful and good things, and give thanks for Allah’s favour, if it is He whom you serve.

Qur’an 2:172

Prohibited to you are dead animals, blood and (those animals) killed by strangling or by a violent blow or by a head-long fall or by being gored to death. That is grave disobedience.

Qur’an 5:3

Allah cursed him [Satan] for having said: ‘I shall entice a number of your servants, and lead them astray, and I shall arouse in them vain desires; and I shall instruct them to slit the ears of cattle; and most certainly, I shall bid them – so that they will corrupt Allah’s creation’. Indeed! He who chooses the Devil rather than Allah as his patron, ruins himself manifestly.

Qur’an 4:118, 119


Eat from the good things with which We have provided you and do not transgress [or oppress others] therein, lest My anger should descend upon you. And he upon whom My anger descends has certainly fallen.

Qur’an 20:81

[In regards to animal sacrifice:] It is not their flesh, nor their blood, that reaches Allah; it is your righteousness {piety and spiritual volition} that reaches Him. Their flesh will never reach Allah, nor yet their blood, but your devotion will reach Him.

 Qur’an 22:37


And the Earth, he has assigned it to all living creatures.

Qur’an 55:10
