An Islamic Approach towards Environmental Education

Marwan Haddad

Abstract


Adistinctly Islamic approach to environmental education is pinpointed as a result of (a) identifying, listing, sorting, and grouping the verses in the Qura’n (the holy book of Islam and Moslems) related to environmental education such as learning, exercising, and mind and knowledge development, and (b) finding connections and relationships between groups according to mutual meanings. The approach is formulated in a tripod-type structure. Allah Subhanahu Wa Taala, the one-and-only Creator, represented by the belief in, and application of his rules and directions as stated in the holy Qura’n, stands at the top of the tripod. The legs of the tripod represent faith, manifestation, and knowledge, and each leg, in turn, constitutes the top of a local sub-tripod comprising of path, reference, and end results.
