Radical Reform

Tariq Ramadan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Islamic thought on ecology and the economy. It argues that the reform of human realities, mind-sets, understandings, and societies requires a broad view of what the problems are and becoming involved on several levels. But when construing contemporary Islamic thought, it is strangely absent from some contemporary essential debates, or, at least, lagging far behind developments. This is most evident in matters related to the economy and ecology: an earnest, realistic ethical thought cannot approach either of them in isolation, and one must not fail to note all the necessary conclusions and all the concrete consequences that such a combined approach leads to in either field of activity.

Keywords:   Islamic thought, Islamic law, environment, nature, ritual slaughter, economic growth
