Keywords: Ecology, sustainability, protection, Islamic laws, Pakistani laws

Abstract

This study aims to explore the intersection of Islamic laws and legal frameworks in Pakistan related to environmental protection and ecological sustainability. Numerous Laws and governmental and non-government organizations to protect and sustain the environment have evolved with the passage of time in Pakistan. Islam as a comprehensive religion underpins the Islamic law of ecological sustainability, which stresses humankind's duty to safeguard the ecosystem. Islam's extensive character means its environmental rulings simultaneously apply to individuals, societies, and states. The present investigation intends to offer some insight into the possibility of harmonization and the incorporation of both structures for efficient ecological conservation by studying the ideas, notions, and legal processes existent in Islamic law and Pakistani environmental law. The methodology used in this study is a thorough assessment and comparative analysis of the pertinent literature, which includes scholarly papers, case laws, environmental laws of Pakistan, and Islamic legal texts (Quran, Hadith, etc.). Contemporary ecological paradigms might benefit from the legal and pragmatic suggestions of the Islamic concept of sustainable development. This abstract claims that Islamic law's ideas and precepts can promote equitable growth, ecological awareness, and harmony among humans and nature.
