This research examined the human self in its animal scenes according to Ibn Sina, the most famous philosopher of Islam and an Aristotelian philosopher. A comparison between the human self and that self by Ibn al-Qayyim and the scenes of animal disobedience has been made. The research concluded that when the human self falls into disobedience, it might take from the characteristics of some animals. Some humans have their natures like the natures of animals and their morals like that of beasts, like the dog self in greed and the donkey self that has nothing but toil and fodder, and like that of wild animal self in aggression, and like the self of a mouse in corruption. Also, some other can have harmful selves such as those of serpents and scorpions and like the pig self in eating garbage, and like the peacock self that cares about its form rather than its essence. In addition, some of them are like the noble self in its roughness, and among them is the horse soul because of goodness in their forelocks. It is better than the modern means of transportation.
