The aim of this research is to focus on the Islamic values that called for moderating consumption. The research is limited to water wastage, pollution and misuse, based on Islamic values, morals and rules that call for preserving and not polluting water, citing some, general and specific, jurisprudential, cultural and behavioural rulings covering water preservation. For this reason, this research is carried out to highlight the role of Islamic culture. Aspects of water security were highlighted, following the Sunnah of the Prophet, and the role of universities in spreading and promoting this Islamic environmental culture, especially King Faisal University, in accordance with the university’s role to promote food security and environmental sustainability. This role is represented in promoting a culture of rationalizing water consumption. The university’s promotion of guidance and culture of awareness, focusing on specialised scientific research that contributes culturally and scientifically to addressing some of the problems and solutions related to the scope of rationalizing water consumption. The research highlighted several results, including the value and enormity of water in Sharia law, where the use water is considered cleansing. The role of King Faisal University is to focus on this matter from different angles, within its identity, highlighting it as a major track through application and research. Recommendations emerged regarding the modernisation of systems, the intensification of research and spreading a culture of rationalizing consumption through academic research, and through various agreements.
