عنوان مقاله [English]
Among the various branches of science in today's societies, one can not find a science that has no historical dependence and does not need to study the history of that science. The history of jurisprudence and the subjects covered by it are no exception; And obviously a better understanding of the issues raised in the field of each science requires increasing awareness of them from the past to the present. Because fixing any mistake or shortcoming in the field of any science requires the use of historical experiences. As a result, achieving this goal and increasing the efficiency of any of the modern sciences can not be achieved simply by studying the history of that science. Therefore, in the present article, a selection of the historical background of animal rights, which is one of the current issues in the field of law and one of the current challenges facing legal systems - especially in Iran - will be studied. In this regard, we will study the history of animal rights in ancient and Islamic thought, along with examples of historical backgrounds of the debate in Iran and some other cultures, as well as in the form of verses, hadiths and narrations.
