Abstract

Building a sustainable nation from the Quranic perspective is a form of Islamic model that is clearly stated in the Quran. The model is based on the conception of Islamic principle, that adopts Islamic sharī‘ah (order) preservation approach, and executes the nation’s development based on the guidelines embodied in the Quran and Sunnah. Most countries that drive success in various fields neglect the importance of balance between the physical development and spiritual development. This situation will only allow the world to strive for a materialistic success without any holistic development. Therefore, this study elaborated on the characteristics of a Balda Ṭayyiba Wa Rabb Ghafūr state, which was the axis of the past Islamic world empires. A qualitative research method was used in this study by collecting library data to analyse texts that would suggest the concepts of building a sustainable nation from the Quranic perspective. Therefore, this working paper would explicate the features of Balda Ṭayyiba Wa Rabb Ghafūr as the basis of global Islamic nation building. This study revealed that the nation of Balda Ṭayyiba Wa Rabb Ghafūr requires an Islamic administration that covers various aspects, including politics, Rabbānī (divine) holistic education system, fair economic system, and sustainable environment. By understanding the Balda Ṭayyiba principle and its features, the greatness of a nation’s civilisation could be reinstated. Thus, the basis of a nation’s well-being relies on its political stability, a holistic education system, a fair economic system, and a sustainable environment.

ABSTRAK:

Pembangunan negara lestari menurut perspektif al-Quran merupakan satu bentuk model Islam yang jelas dinyatakan di dalam al-Quran. Model ini adalah berdasarkan konsep prinsip Islam yang menerapkan pendekatan pemeliharaan syariat Islam dalam melaksanakan pembangunan negara berdasarkan garis panduan yang terkandung di dalam al-Quran dan Sunnah. Kebanyakan negara yang memacu kejayaan dalam pelbagai bidang mengabaikan kepentingan pembangunan fizikal yang seimbang dengan pembangunan rohani. Keadaan ini akan membawa dunia menuju kejayaan material tanpa pembangunan yang menyeluruh. Justeru, kajian ini menghuraikan ciri-ciri negara Balda Ṭayyiba Wa Rabb Ghafūr yang merupakan paksi empayar dunia Islam pada masa lalu. Metodologi kajian kualitatif telah digunakan dalam kajian ini dengan mengumpulkan data perpustakaan untuk menganalisis teks demi menunjukkan konsep pembangunan Negara Lestari menurut perspektif al-Quran. Oleh itu, artikel ini menjelaskan ciri-ciri Balda Ṭayyiba Wa Rabb Ghafūr sebagai asas pembinaan negara Islam yang global. Dengan memahami prinsip Balda Ṭayyiba dan ciri-cirinya, keagungan peradaban bangsa akan dikembalikan semula. Oleh sebab yang sedemikian, asas kesejahteraan negara bergantung kepada kestabilan politiknya, sistem pendidikan yang holistik, sistem ekonomi yang adil, dan persekitaran yang lestari.
