What are the Islamic Approach towards Environmental Education
  • "The Islamic approach differs from other human-made approaches in
    many respects:
    • The Islamic approach is directly related and connected to faith, not interest
    (e.g., economic, political, environmental, or other) or a scientific basis
    (Qura’n 21:94 and 105, 64:13, 61:11, 57:8, 49:15, 47:36, 40:58, and 27:97).
    • The Islamic approach relies on the Qura’n as the only non-changing reference
    to all laws, rules, and regulations, including those related to the environment
    (Qura’n 18:1, 27, and 49, 6:38, 11:1, and 27:75).
    • The Islamic approach considers the people of the earth as one nation and the
    Qura’n as the reference for operating, maintaining, and resolving matters, differences,
    and conflicts of all people and all aspects of life (Qura’n 2:213, 4:105,
    5:57, and 16:64).
    • The Islamic approach, with the Qura’n as the last holy book from Allah
    (SWT), confirms what went before it: the Torah and the Bible (Qura’n 3:2). This
    means that Islam considers the Qura’n, the Bible, and the Torah as the code
    of conduct on earth sent by Allah; however, the Qura’n is the newer and last
    version of that code. In this regard, the Qura’n does not contradict with the Bible
    and the Torah, but has a handle on them like any new code (Qura’n 5:48).
    • Implementation of the Islamic approach is based on individual Moslem
    accountability or responsibility towards Allah (SWT) (Qura’n 17:14, 39:41, 67:2,
    and 11:7).
    • Changes in, and/or development to, the Islamic approach or code of conduct
    can occur with time and space. While the text in the Qura’n is fixed, its interpretation
    by Moslems changes according to the state of affairs or environment
    facing Moslems anytime and anywhere. In Islam, Moslems are characterized
    by self-control from being under continuous testing by Allah (SWT) to behave
    according to his principles and to use the resources given to them by Allah
    (SWT) in balance and in the best manner possible. They will be asked by Allah
    (SWT) in the hereafter about their hands, legs, minds, ears, eyes, mouth, and
    other organs, and how they used them to do righteous and beneficial deeds
    (Qura’n 28:77, 11:7 and 61, 67:2, 95:4, 55:60, 39:18, 24:38, 16:90, 62:10,
    10:26, 21:35, and 7:168)."
