dc.description.abstract The focus and aim of this study is twofold. Firstly it strives to ascertain whether the “green” scenarios veneered in the Bible are also ensconced within the Qur’an. Secondly, it is also imperative to determine what the mutual perceptions between Christians and Muslims are in order to enhance the possibility of dialogue in general between the two faiths. It was found that the respective and traditions of both faiths resonates with ecological similarities, amidst the theological and traditional differences. It was further found that mutual perceptions between Christians and Muslims have changed. In the vast expanse of the radical fundamentalist world of the Islam, the voices of moderate fundamentalists with liberal inclinations, however small in numbers, are heard more and more. The reciprocal element between Christians and moderate Muslims promise to secure a co-operative relationship, to inspire religious tolerance and hopefully to formulate a shared ideology. Furthermore, to orientate communities of both faiths at grassroots levels about nature conservation, a practical environmental agenda was proposed. en
