You, Me & Planet Earth

Assalamu'alaikum,

“The creation of the heavens and the earth is far greater than the creation of mankind. But most of mankind do not know it.” Qur’an, 40:56

“It is He who has appointed you as viceroys in the earth.” Qur’an, 6:165

Allah has described mankind as His Guardians on earth. It is therefore our responsibility to take care of other creatures and the earth itself. Yet how many of us take these duties seriously as an integral part of our way of life?

Most of us probably know that the coming 28th March 09 is marked for Earth Hour. (Click the image to visit the Earth Hour website)



VOTE EARTH by simply switching off your lights for one hour, and join the world for Earth Hour.

Saturday, March 28, 8:30-9:30pm.

In conjunction with this, we'd like to share some information on our responsibilities as Muslims towards the natural environment. A good website that provides this info is http://ifees.org.uk/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1

Abdur Raheem Green has a page dedicated to this issue on his blog: http://www.islamsgreen.org/islams_green/going_green/

Wassalam :)
