Monkey’s stoning hadith.
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 5.188 Narrated byAmr bin Maimun
During the pre-Islamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded bya number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, beCause it hadcommitted illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them.
Perception and attention of humans and monkeys r close and many other things.
Possibly monogamous monkeys saw stoning of adulterous men and women,thus they copied it,for stoning was followed by all the ppl of the book(jews &christians).
and Amr bin Maimun too stoned ,this he did in pre-Islamic period of ignorance.other wise muslims dont interfere in matters of animals unless for protection and help.
...16. Monkeys and brain research Monkeys and brain research (neuroscience)
Why are monkeys used?
The complex nature and connectivity of these neural systems in humans is much closer to that found in the monkey brain than in other animals. For
example, certain parts of the brain such as the cerebral cortex are poorly developed in other animals. And the temporal and frontal lobes of the
cortex, which are involved in functions such as perception, attention, memory and planning in the human brain, are underdeveloped in lower animals.
There is very strong evidence that there are structural, functional, behavioural and neurobiological similarities between humans and monkeys. Research into neurological disorders involving higher functions and brain structures such as the frontal lobes depends much more on studies of monkeys
than of other animals. For example, disorders such as depression,
monogamy in monkeys.
Siamangs have other key attributes such as monogamy, territoriality,a fruit-eating diet, and suspensory behaviour. With their long arms, they are able to hang underneath branches and swing from arm to arm. This type of movement is known as brachiation. Siamangs are unique primates. Come early and you may be lucky to hear them.
This hadith informs monogamous nature of monkey's.
Allah knows best.
