  MUSLIM'S DUTY TOWARDS THE ENVIRONMENT

"It is He Who hath made you (his) agents, inheritors of the earth : He hath raised you in ranks, some above others:that he may try you in the gifts He hath given you: For thy Lord is quick in punishment :yet He is indeed Oft-forgiving,Most Merciful"
<Qur'an-An'am 6:165>


"When he turns his back, his aim everywhere is to spread mischief through the earth and destroy crops and cattle. But God loveth not mischief.[206] When it is said to him, "Fear Allah," He is led by arrogance to (more) crime. Enough for him is Hell; an evil bed indeed (to lie on)!" <Qur'an-Baqara 2:205-206>

We are the guardians of this earth, therefore as Muslims, it is our duty to preserve the planet.. so let's begin with...

  • Reducing the use of the car.The more gasoline we burn, the more carbon dioxide (CO2) we put into the air. And CO2 is the primary global warming pollutant. Prefer the train, walking or biking when you can.
  • Replacing incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs - especially those that burn the longest each day. These produce the same amount of light as normal bulbs, use about a quarter of the electricity, and last ten times as long. Each compact fluorescent bulb saves 500 pounds of coal, helping to clean the air today, curb global warming, and save you money on your electricity bill.
  • Installing low-flow shower heads and faucets. You'll use less than half the water without decreasing performance. Turn your hot water heater down to 120F and see hot water costs go down by as much as 50%.
  • Buying energy-efficient electronics and appliances. Then, turn them off when they're not in use. When buying, look for the Energy Star label or yellow-and-black sticker that tell you the energy efficiency ratings.
  • Planting trees, protecting the forest. Trees "breathe in" carbon dioxide, but only as long as they're living. Protecting forests is a big step on the road to curbing global warming.
  • Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! Producing new paper, glass, and metal products from recycled materials saves 70-90% of the energy and pollution including CO2, that would result if the product came from virgin materials. Recycling a stack of newspapers only 4' high will save a good sized tree.

Please... care about the environment, and buy recycled products!
