Our Role in Protecting the Environment

  • When God created the world and placed us, humans, to live on it, He wanted us to lead a prosperous life that is in harmony with everything around us. Because God created us in harmony with nature. He wanted us to protect this home for others to live and thrive too. 
  • Everywhere we look in the Qur'an, we find references to the wonders of God's creations. He asks us to watch, observe, reflect and learn. 
  • One of the most fundamental teachings in our religion is to protect life, referred to as "Hifz al-nafs". When human life is under threat, everything else becomes secondary. 
  • Let us make our families those who love the environment and work towards protecting it.
