Abstract

On 5th June, every year, International Environment Day is observed throughout the world. The time is appropriate to investigate the Islamic diktat on environment and ecology. Environmental crisis is probably the only one issue over which we have universal consensus. The problems of ecological and biological diversity have drawn the attention of the modern world so much so that time and again world summits have been organized to seriously contemplate upon the global environmental crisis. Climate Treaty in 1992, Kyoto Protocol in 1997, Bali Action plan in 2007 and the recent Conference on Environment in Copenhagen in 2009 are a few instances to mention. Unfortunately almost all these deliberations ended up with only half-baked ideas and piecemeal solutions which could not propose any sustainable and viable solutions to the global environmental challenges. This paper is an attempt to project the approaches of Islam to environment as an effective alternative to the contemporary environmental crises.
