Abstract

The issue of environmental damage is a global problem that occurs in this day. Various efforts have been made - from legislation to world level conferences. However, it does not show significant results. It is no longer an ethical-ecological problem. It is an ethical-theological problem. It demands the religion to play a role in finding the solutions. All faiths have views regarding this environmental problem, which generally shows the same level of concern of the earth’s damage. Islam, in this case, has the right solution. It is the eco-theology of the Qur’an. Its discussion leads to the need for ecological sustainability to respond to the industrial modernity challenges. Al-Qur’an advocates the importance of responsibility as God’s representative on earth by preserving, utilizing but paying attention to its sustainability. Avoiding exploitation causes weather anomalies. Besides that, eco-theology also suggests that a country should also have clear rules to preserve the earth.
