Reclaiming cultural landscape is the idea of regaining the valuable heritage of human legacy that represents peoples’ identity and original culture of a group of people or place which cannot be replaced or regained after it has been destroyed. From Islamic point of view, cultural landscape presents the notion of revealing and sustaining the great diversity of the interactions between humans and their environment. Islam highlights the importance of human relationship with the environment and the associations involving the two assemblages have been emphasized repeatedly in the Qur’an. Due to its significance, this paper will be focusing on reclaiming cultural landscape of Minangkabau to ensure the heritage values, beliefs and traditions are being well preserved. -owadays, Minangkabau is losing its sense of identity which probably caused by its integration with other ethnicity in Malaysia.
