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 ﷺ
declared that the Earth is a mosque.

'Deen' means 'way' in Arabic. Abdul-Matin offers dozens of examples of how Muslims can follow, and are already 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.
