Islam and the Environment

The teachings of Islam cover all facets of life. Precepts on the relationship between human beings (either directly or indirectly) and the environment are primarily available in the primary sources of Islam viz. the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (Ahadith). The other two sources of knowledge on the subject matter in focus, are the Ijma (consensus of the scholars) and Qiyas (analogy). However, the Quran and Ahadith are regarded as the pivotal sources of most of the primary literature related specifically to the environment.

The environment, is Allah's creation. The creation of this earth and all its natural resources is a sign of His Wisdom, Mercy, Power and His other Attributes and therefore serves to develop human awareness and understanding of Allah.

Muslims should seek to protect and preserve the environment because by so doing they protect Allah's creatures which pray to Him and praise Him. Humankind might not be able to understand how these creatures praise Allah but this does not mean that they do not do so, Allah says in Quran: (The seven heavens and the earth, and all that is therein, glorify Him and there is not a thing but glorifies His Praise.

And in the creation of yourselves and the fact that animals are scattered (throughout the earth), are Signs for those of assured Faith. And the alteration of Night and Day, and the fact that Allah sends down Sustenance from the sky, and revives therewith the earth after its death, and in the change of the winds,-are Signs for those that are wise." (Qur'an, 45:3-5). Destruction of the environment is tantamount to destroying these signs. If any species becomes extinct, it is considered a loss of a Sign that reflects the greatness of Allah (TA).

Religion's role in AIDS prevention

With increasingly shocking global statistics of 33.4 million people living with HIV, with some 2.7 million newly infected people with the virus and an estimated 2 million people who have died from AIDS related illnesses its clear that efforts made to protect the new generation is failing to halt the spread of this global killer.

The HIV/Aids crisis should therefore be a challenge to faith-based institutions that are the most effective and influential tools for humanity’s survival and control of this rampant virus which continues to destroy families and break down the economies of heavily affected areas. The advantage that religious institutions has over its denominations is far reaching with existing built-in infrastructure of
