Abstract

Civil society plays an important role in supporting the development of the country. However, the lack of current studies focuses on this aspect, especially from the fiqh approach. Thus, this paper will explore the principle of ‘La Dharar Wa La Dhirar’ as a guide in empowering the role of civil society in the built environment. This qualitative study accomplished the content analysis from Kitab al-I’lan Bi Ahkam Al-Bunyan. The findings indicated that several essences derived from the Kitab related the roles of civil society towards the sustainable built environment in the future.

Keywords: Civil society; built environment; fiqh; 'La Dharar'
