MUSLIM BELIEFS ON ANIMAL TESTING:
Islam supports our view of not supporting animal testing because they believe that you should not be cruel to animals and these experiments should only been done if absolutely necessary and are for the benefit of humans. However Islam does allow testing and experiments on animals if it is for improving human health or human safety. These experiments or testing should not cause pain to the animal as the Qur'an says that animals have feelings ( all animals should be slaughtered in a painless way) This is because the Qur'an says that animals are created by Allah and you should not hurt anything that belongs to Allah.
