Water is essential environmental elements and vital in the Islamic value system. Cleanliness is not only on application of water to worship but also from safety aspect for daily use like drinking water and recreation. Organic and inorganic substances which were released into the environment due to domestic, agricultural and industrial water activities lead to water pollution, soil pollution and ecosystem degradation. The normal primary and secondary treatment processes of these wastewaters have been introduced to eliminate the easily settled materials and to oxidize the organic material present in wastewater. The final result is a clear, however it discharged with nutrients causes eutrophication and heavy metals that affect the health of organism via food chain. Thus, phycoremediation offers an interesting step for wastewater treatments, because they provide a tertiary biotreatment coupled with the production of potentially valuable biomass, which can be used for several purposes. The aim for this research is to explore different group of selected algae as potential removal of heavy metals in waste water. It expresses less harm to human, animal, and plant health, as well as damage to the world as parallel with the objective of Maqasid Shariah, to preserve and protect life (nafs). The research were conducted by developing two phases which are algae culturing and phycoremediation model system. Pseudanabaena sp. and Chlorococcum sp. were cultivated in BBM medium in optimum condition. Three different heavy metals concentration of Pb, Fe, Cr, Cd, Al and Cu were tested. The treatments were run every week till the fourth week in the treatment room. The heavy metals detection were analyzed by ICP-MS. The result of present investigation clearly indicated that all species are highly efficient for removal of Class III up to Class V toxicities of Pb, Cr, Cd, and Cu at the average rate between 80 to 98%.
