Abstract

Biosafety is the anticipation of significant forfeiture of biotic reliability, concentrating equally on bionetwork and hominid fitness. Use of animals and plants for experimental purposes is a controversial issue in recent days. Advanced states have constituted its biosafety and bioethical rules for security and survival of animals. Which prohibited unethical use of animals and ill treatment. All academic and research institutions are bound to constitute an ethical review committee which is assigned to review and supervise research activities conducted in institute. Contemporary Bioethical rules are assumed to secure the basic rights of animals. Islam has also set ethical principles for survival and security of animals and assure their innate privileges. Animals are an inordinate sanctification of Allah Almighty, many of our daily necessities are associated with them, and there is no denying the importance of animals in human life. As per Islamic education feeding and proper treatment and shelter are fundamental rights of animals and owner of animals is bound to provide these facilities. Moreover, cursing, beating, teasing and unnecessarily slaughter of animals is disliked. Major difference between contemporary bioethical rules regarding animal rights and Islamic teachings is use of animal for food purposes.
