Muslims have a deep connection to the natural world that transcends space and time. Far-reaching consequences await us in the afterlife if we ignore our duty and responsibility in this world. Allah has decreed for the creation to be a manifestation of His signs, and we, too, are included within that. How troubling would it be if we were to knowingly accelerate and remove these signs that Allah has bestowed upon us? What would we think and ponder upon if all that’s left is our own destruction?
Muslims need to know How we respond to local and global environmental challenges as a community is critical. When we enter the court of The Almighty and are called to trial, witnesses will be brought forth; lets us wonder whether the Earth will act as a witness for us or against us?Author – Redwan A 2018, “When the earth speaks against us: Environmental Ethics in Islam,” Yaqeen Institute 2021.
