Islamic Principles and Land , Opportunities for Engagement

This booklet arises from GLTN's work on Islamic dimensions of land which began in 2004 with the commissioning of research leading to Sait and Lim's "Land, Law and Islam: Property and Human Rights in the Muslim World" (London: Zed Press/UN-HABITAT, 2006). Based on this research a training course on "Islamic Land, Principles and Housing Rights in the Muslim World" has been produced in 2010.

The booklet provides a short summary of the key principles and elements of Islamic dimensions of land. It is intended for land professionals, policy makers, and any other stakeholder working in the land sector, who is looking for a short overview of these aspects of land in Muslim societies. It is intended to provide a wider understanding of how to integrate Islamic dimensions into land projects and programmes.
