Faith Fridays - Inspired by Muhammad - Environment - Kristiane Backer [VIDEO]

This week's Faith Fridays and this week's Open Circle is on the environment. As Allah's Khalifah on this earth one of our responsibilities is to make the physical world clean and beautiful. As Muslims we find it easy to perfect ourselves and to help others perfect themselves but we push the environment and the world we live in to the back of our minds.

There are many verses in the Qur'an that talk about nature and how they are all Blessings from Allah. In Surah Ar-Rahman (The Most Gracious) Allah mentions fruits, dates, corn and other sweet plants and then asks mankind "Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you deny?" It is undeniable that nature and the environment is an important part of our existence. As such at YMP we felt it was time to introduce this topic. While not particular popular or attention-grabbing we believe discussions about our environment are pertinent during these times.

So join former MTV presenter Kristiane Backer in her promotional video for the brilliant Inspired by Muhammad campaing as she talks about Islam and the environment. And don't forget to join us this Sunday!
