International Symposium: “Animals as Worshipers of God First of All: On Animal Piety in Islam”


About The Event

Call for Papers

Date: November 16-17, 2022

Venue: Paris, France

Proposal Deadline: June 30, 2022


In this symposium, we aim to consider the religious figure of the animal in Islam, neither as an object of worship (an idol) nor a means of worship (sacrificial offering), but rather as a fully-fledged subject, a worshiper of God and a model for all worshipers.

What are the origin and theological posterity of verses like, “Do you not see that God is glorified by all those in the heavens and the earth, even birds in rows?” (24:41) What does believing in animal worship of God imply for the definition of religion itself?
