The articulation of an Islamic environmental ethic in contemporary terms is all the more urgent because Western-style conservation efforts do not fit all cultural and philosophical traditions. This volume outlines the Islamic view of the cosmic order and reviews the ways an Islamic world view can be interpreted, reassessed, and applied to such environmental problems as pollution and water scarcity. Sections on social justice and on issues of sustainability and development look at the history and roots of the current environmental crisis- at the broader context of womens rights of equal access to both natural and social resources- and at the interconnectedness of environmental protection and the alleviation of human poverty.
A consideration of the question of Islam and ecology ought to begin with one fundamental observation of a historical kind: in the construction of what we call the modern world, Islam has had only an indirect role to play. To be sure, one cannot possibly imagine, nor meaningfully speak of, the phenomenon generally known as the scientific revolution, or that which we refer to as the Renaissance, without keeping in view the formidable intellectual influence of Islam on Latin Christendom. But this legacy was appropriated—and here we see the complexities and ironies of the historical process—in ways that often were alien to the world of Islam itself. The reception in both the Islamic and Christian worlds of the work of the towering giant Alhazen Ibn al-Haytham, d. Alhazen, who revolutionized the field of optics, was ignored in the Islamic world even as he became a central scientific figure in the West.
He has served as director of training at the Alliance of Religions and Conservation and as a consultant for World Wildlife Fund. Masri, and Seyyed Hossein Nasr convinced him to devote the remainder of his life to raising environmental consciousness among Muslims. Since founding IFEES in he has spent much of his time traveling to Muslim communities around the world initiating environmental education projects in contexts as diverse as Tanzania , Saudi Arabia , Madagascar , and Indonesia. Khalid has been described as "the single most active 'Islamic' environmentalist alive today". The Independent on Sunday ranked him 81st among Britain's top environmentalists. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Cruelty to animals occurs during production, handling, transport, and slaughter in most countries where Islam is a major religion. Most of the people involved in this, such as those involved in the transport of animals, animal handlers, and butchers, are Muslims. However, many Muslims and Islamic religious leaders are not aware of this cruelty. Islam has also laid down rules for humane slaughter. In many countries animals are killed without pre-stunning.

View My Stats. This paper aims to tackle the problem that Global Governance is currently encountering: the absence of ethics within the framework of policy making. It seeks to fill this gap by discussing how Islamic thought can contribute positively towards the making the notion of ethics central in governance. The paper will begin with an overview of Global Governance and the historical and current intellectual trends within this field.
