Présentation
The availability of precious water resources makes possible continuing existence in the world’s arid regions. In undertaking technological modernization, arid Islamic states need legal provisions to ensure thoughtful management of all water resources.
This paper explores the specifications for certain his torical, religious foundations for water usage and ownership in a modern Islamic state—Saudi Arabia. This nation has formally embraced the HanbalI school of Islamic law in its everyday legal system. Relevant water precepts are extracted from the anbal ! legal texts selected by Saudi Arabia. These are translated from the Arabic with minimal interpretation, then organ ized into categories for discussion : water ownership, priority of water use, allocation of water, irrigation and drainage system maintenance, water and land reclamation, the arlm, the conduct of property, and water quality.
It is concluded that anbalI jurisprudence embodies doctrines eminently appropriate for developing effective arid lands water management policies
