Annotation:With no intention to present the Islamic view, Ammar introduces an Islamic ethical paradigm supported by the Qur’an, Hadiths, Sunnah, and Sharia’h. She explains that the meaning of “ethics” can be understood in Islamic terms as hay’a, the state of respect and/or practice of good deeds. Ammar provides clear ethical guidelines regarding natural resources (conservation, sharing, treating with kindness), and protected and preserved land designations. She concludes with the suggestion that any discussion on the environmental crisis should remain sensitive to cultural issues.
