Islamic Environmental Ethics: Preserving the Sacred Balance

Abstract Islamic environmental ethics derive from the theological underpinnings of Islam, highlighting the interconnections of all the elements in the universe. Rooted in the concept of Tawhid, a central tenet in Islamic theology, these ethics underscore the belief in the Oneness of God as the creator of the entire universe. Currently, we find ourselves in a world where persistent human actions are causing detrimental impacts on our environment. Anthropogenic activities, including water pollution, air pollution, and land pollution, coupled with inhumane treatment towards other living beings, contribute to the widespread destruction of numerous species, organisms, water bodies, land areas, the ozone layer, and various natural resources. This collective behavior poses a significant threat to the delicate balance of our ecosystems. Environmental challenges have become unavoidable, exacerbated by a general lack of public awareness and the escalating environmental harm caused by irresponsible actions. Islamic environmental ethics offer a framework of principles and moral standards aimed at ensuring the preservation and wellbeing of the natural environment. This paper aims to explore the Islamic perspective on the environment, encompassing both biotic and abiotic components. It will delve into the principles of environmental ethics in Islam, elucidating the role assigned to human beings in this perspective. Furthermore, it will examine Islam's attitude towards the environment, addressing issues related to natural resources and emphasizing the responsibility of humans to act as conscientious stewards of the Earth.
