Islamic jurisprudence and conditions for acceptability of reclamation of wastewater for potable use by Muslim users
Expanded Title:Water resonates deeply in the day-to-day lives of Muslims in South Africa and beyond. The research was a very successful first step in documenting the extent of water reclamation projects and developments in Muslim countries. It was even more successful at presenting a detailed framework for understanding the ethical and juridical significance of water in the Islamic tradition. This framework made it possible to address the key questions of the project. Water reclamation was supported by Muslims in a constructive manner. More substantially, the majority of Muslim scholars supported Indirect Portable Reuse. They were concerned about the continuing threats to water, and called for caution in the implementation of water reclamation practices. Muslims, in particular, were still concerned about the threat of medical hazards in the water supply. They asked Muslims and other local communities to be more directly involved in water management practices. At the same time, the religious leaders called upon mosques to lead by example and introduce water saving and recycling measures. They called upon themselves and other religious leaders to raise awareness or water conservation and water management challenges in the country.
