All the ideological and philosophical debates of this world, either its about feminism, environmentalism, humanism, and so an are considered to be the creation of West and their beginning can be traced to no more than once century before. Though, the opinion is somewhat distorted, as there is another authority concerning all the present logics and philosophies as well that gave its structure about fourteen hundred years before. That power and authority is of Holy Quran.

Besides the roles and rights and of women, the regulations of economic system, the freedom of the slaves and other issues about which Islam took action, one of the main areas of the Islamic lessons is going care of environment.

The Western world came across the matters of weakening environmental condition not more than fifty years before and then it realized that environment wants to be protected and secured for the survival of human race. On the other side, Islam gave its view and opinion regarding the saving, protection, and reinstatement of environment, furthermore, this environmental aspect was not only worldly, rather it was linked with religious benefits so that Muslims could ensure and pursue it with their heart.

In Quran, verse 21:164, ALLAH Almighty says:

“Behold! In the creation of the heavens and the earth: in the alternation of the night and the day: in the sailing of the ships through the ocean for the profit of mankind: in the rain which God sends down from the skies, and the life which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead: in the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth: in the change of the winds and the clouds subjugated between the sky and earth – [here] indeed are signs for the people who think.”

The lines below show these elements,


The lack of observing cleanliness is one of the main causes behind general deterioration of environment and pollution. Islam is a strong advocate of cleanliness and wants its Believers to observe cleanliness in every matter whether it is personal, physical, spiritual and so on.


The other feature of environmentalism commended and encouraged in Islam is the ensuring of green surroundings. Islam is greatly in favour of the growing and sowing of trees so that the environment can stay healthy and humans can benefit.

Protection or guarding of animals:

When a Muslim takes care of animals than he or she is truly protecting and preserving a crucial part of the ecology, in addition to being at a superior place in front of ALLAH Almighty in the world hereafter.

Avoiding Wastage of Resources:

The resources of this globe are limited and one of the most important reasons that the environmental health issues of the world is depleting is the truth that the scarce resources are being wasted among them water being the evident and obvious example of it. In Quran, verse 7:31, ALLAH Almighty says:

“O children of Adam! Wear your beautiful apparel at every time and place of prayer, eat and drink, but waste not by excess, for God loves not the wasters.”
