In the coming years, human-animal relations can be expected to be an increasing concern in the Islamic world and among the Muslim diaspora given the pressures applied by the globalizing network of industrial economies and rapid advancements in the biological sciences. The issue of how to effectively engage Islamic discourse in global dialogues on human-animal relations can also be expected to become more pressing. This paper argues that the current strategies of producing and engaging Islamic discourse do not take into account the complexities of how Islamic discourse is generated and are both limited by a legalistic or sharia focus. Instead an Adab-centred approach is proposed as a means of cultivating both a more engageable form of Islamic discourse and a broader global dialogue on human-animal relations.
