Abstract

The Holy Quran, the sacred Muslim religious book, is also a sum of principles and teachings covering all aspects of human life. About 750 verses (of 6236) refer to various aspects of nature, and to the relationship between man and nature. The aim of this paper is to briefly analyse some of the many ecological verses. The article highlights the eco-educational dimension of the Holy Quran by means of a qualitative investigation. It addresses the ecological considerations on the rational use of natural resources, ethical interactions between man and nature, and the rights of plants, animals and of the physical elements of the environment.

Keywords: the Holy Quran, environmental education, teachings, environmental protection, sustainability
