Islamist Perspectives on Energy Issues

Cover Page

Abstract


Despite the centrality of oil and gas in the political life and economy of many Middle Eastern countries, scant attention has been paid to Islamist perspectives on energy issues [1]. This article will first outline the general Islamic approach to energy based on the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad, as well as the writings of prominent Muslim thinkers. Then the article will describe the energy perspectives of three major Islamist groups: Hizb ut-Tahrir, the Muslim Brotherhood, and al Qaeda.
