Abstract

Today, the ecological system is being destroyed due to the environmental pollution. Unlimited consumption habits and the use of non-recyclable materials disrupt the ecological balance; thus endangering the life of all living things in danger. This situation puts the life of all living things in danger. This paper explores how religion might shape perspectives on sustainability measures. The references from the Holy Quran on ecological issues have been highlighted to bring into light the teachings and instructions of Islam and the collaboration of Islamic teachings into environmental campaigns in order to raise social awareness on sustainability issues has been proposed. This paper explains how environmental issues are mentioned in the Qur'an and suggests studies involving Religious Culture and Moral Knowledge (RCMV) teachers and the religious commissaries to protect the environment. At the same time this study shows that it is necessary to act in accordance with the nature of the earth for a more balanced, peaceful and sustainable existential climate.
