Description

Muslims are compelled by their religion to praise their Creator, pray, fast and give charity. But what is not widely known is that there are deep and long-standing connections between Islamic teachings and environmentalism. In this ground breaking book, Ibrahim Abdul-Matin draws on research, scripture and interviews with Muslims to trace Islam’s profound dedication to humankind’s collective role as stewards of the Earth. Abdul-Matin points out that the Prophet Muhammad declared that the Earth is a mosque. ‘Deen’ means ‘way’ in Arabic. Abdul-Matin offers dozens of examples of how Muslims can follow, and already are following, a Green Deen in four areas: waste, watts (energy), water and food. At last, people of all beliefs can appreciate the gifts and contributions that Islam and Muslims bring to the environmental movement. ‘Ibrahim-Abdul Matin not only shows the myriad ways American Muslims are contributing to the resolution of the environmental crisis that threatens us all, but he goes a long way toward humanizing the Muslim community by sharing with the reader the lives of so many extraordinary, talented and visionary people.’ – Imam Zaid Shakir, co-founder, Zaytuna Institue
