The inscribed and outspread verses of Allah both point towards the relationship of man and nature. Man is brought about to serve as emissary of mercy to the worlds. This article expresses the relationship between man and nature in adherence to qawliyah-quraniyah and kawniyahverses. The study of qawliyah-quraniyah verses reveals harmony between their messages and natural phenomena. With a thematic exegetical method, agreement between both is found in depicting the relationship of man to nature, which is not between subject and object but of a mutualistic symbiosis. Partial comprehension of holy texts has produced partial understanding as well, partly stemming from the factor of past tahlili and ijmali methodologies of commentary that concentrate on text but do not offer thorough explanations on any issue. Consequently, it is not uncommon that nature finds itself at the receiving end of man’s tyrannical behavior. A thematic text-reading method with an interdisciplinary approach is thus considered an apt choice to provide a comprehensive account of man and nature’s relationship.
