Green deen our earth and islam

Our School is ahead in the whole region by raising awareness and celebrating the events related to environment.

2014: March 1st and 3rd 'Green Deen' events were organised related to 'Earth' topic. There is a strong relation of being muslim and Earth.  Deen in Arabic means religion but can also be translated to path or way. So a green deen is literally an environmentally friendly religion.

Islam is based on the understanding that Allah is One, andeverything comes from Allah – He is the Creator and Sustainer. Everything in the natural world is a sign of Allah’s creation.
Islam seeks for us to establish justice and to maintain the Ea rth’s delicate balance (Mizan)

We are required to honor the trust we have with Allah (amana) and bestewards of the Earth (Khalifah)
Living a Green Deen means knowing that we have undertaken a trust ( Amana ) with our Creator to protect the planet.

Earth Day was established in 1970 to raise awareness about the environment.
In the book, "Green Deen: What Islam Teaches About Protecting the Planet," Ibrahim Abdul-Matin outlines Islam's teachings about the environment, and encourages American Muslims to become more conscious of what they can do to protect the planet. Author Ibrahim Abdul-Matin says: "Green has become the catch-all word for being environmentally friendly.
