This book is a major study of environmentalism and Islam in practice and theory, with an historical overview that sets out future challenges, including reformulating the fiqh or Islamic legal tradition to take the ecological dimension seriously.
In arguing that modernity, consumerism and industrialisation need to be rethought, alongside an appeal to reconnect man and woman with creation in the divine order, this book has the potential to reinvigorate the desire for environmental change in a communities that have ignored the planets peril.
In the same way that Naomi Klein's This Changes Everything presented the argument for environmental action in a Capitalist framework, Khalid has written a book that demands action from those whose primary orientation is towards the Islamic faith.
About the author: Fazlun Khalid has a worldwide reputation as an advocate of environmental protection rooted in religious traditions and is recognised as one of fifteen leading eco-theologians in the world. He founded the Islamic Foundation for Ecology and Environmental Sciences (IFEES) which is now established as the world’s leading Islamic environmental NGO.
