Description

Arising from the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and the Earth Charter initiative, this text looks at the distinctive Islamic contribution to the environmental debate. The author views the topic from historical, theological, philosophical, legal and ethical perspectives, examining such aspects as the Quranic doctrine of Creation, human responsibility and the actions of governments. Issues of community, empowerment and culture are discussed in relation to the Islamic and natural world.
