Aspects of Environmental Ethics: An Islamic Perspective

Mohammad Shomali

In the final part of the Faiths in Creation series, Mohammad Shomali presents the Islamic texts that teach of the value of the natural world and the importance of our respect for it.  He gives an Islamic perspective on how we should interact with the environment that surrounds us, and looks at the vices that we are most likely to succumb to.

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, theMerciful

Prophet Muhammad:

If Resurrection is starting and one of you has a sapling in his hand which he can plant before he stands up he must do so.1

Imam Sadiq:

There is no joy in life unless three things are available: clean fresh air, abundant pure water, and fertile land.
