:: URP is about 'ADALAH(عدالة) ::

After studying Urban and Regional Planning for a few months, I realize that there are so many Islamic values applied in this course. John Ratcliffe said

Town Planning concerned with providing the right site, at the right time, in the right place, for the right people”

Don’t you see that town planning has the similarity with one of the Islamic characteristics which is ‘ADALAH (عدالة) or in English we call it JUSTICE. In Islam, justice means

 “providing the right thing in the right place”

Once the planners design a site, they have to consider many things such as environment, social, community, economy and so on.

“Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and liberality to kith and kin, and He forbids all shameful deeds, and injustice and rebellion: He instructs you, that ye may receive admonition” - an-Nahl, 16 : 90

:: Islam & Urban and Regional Planning ::

Semasa dalam kelas Principles of Urban and Regional Planning..

Last week lecture, tiba-tiba fokus saya hilang bila saya tengok perkataan Planning Standard & Guidelines. Saya hanya dapat fokus sekejap, kemudian saya tersenyum sendirian.

Nak tahu kenapa..??

Setiap apa yang dilakukan oleh seorang 'planner' mestilah berpandukan piawaian yang telah ditetapkan iaitu Planning Standard itu tadi. Begitu juga Islam. Jika sesebuah perancangan bandar dan wilayah itu berpandukan Planning Guidelines, maka Islam itu berpandukan al-Quran dan as-Sunnah. Setiap perilaku seorang muslim itu sebaiknya berlandaskan Quran & Sunnah.




sesungguhnya Rasulullah s.a.w pernah bersabda..
"Sesungguhnya aku tinggalkan kepada kamu dua perkara yang sekiranya kamu berpegang teguh kepada kedua-duanya, kamu tidak akan sesat, Itulah al-Quran dan Sunnahku"
