Abstract

Through the teaching of Islam, numerous environmental (green) sustainability elements are mention in different chapters in the Holy Quran and a lot from the teaching of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). In Islam, mankind and environment relationship is well guided because of the thought of the person as an overseer of the mother earth. The substantial proof given by the Holy Quran is a sign that the earth is a vital defended component for future sustenance of the upcoming generation and certainly a secure place to sustain. The immediate destruction of human habitat is nothing but a dilemma of beliefs. Muslim and mankind as a whole have been directed to keep the environment in proper order rather than to damage it. Consequently, an Islamic approach to a sustainable green life involves living in peace and harmony. This article examines some of the principle elements of sustainable green construction, such as water, material, sustainable site, etc. through the definite reference point from Holy Quran and the words of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Hence respecting the law of nature and all its components is a responsibility of every Muslim, who by definition has submitted himself/herself, body and soul, to the Creator.
