Muslims are not only concerned about the environment but actively working to protect it all around the world.
Today is World Environment Day, a day designated by the United Nations to celebrate nature by creating awareness of environmental concerns. In an era when President Trump has declared his decision to pull out of the historic Paris Climate Accord, when sea levels are rising and global warming is only too real, World Environment Day offers an opportunity to take a deep breath and think about what each one of us can do for the earth every day.
Muslims are similarly concerned about environmental issues, a fact that many outside those communities do not realize. There is a stereotype of faithful Muslims praying and fasting, but not engaged or involved in social issues. However, the reality is that Muslims are not only concerned about the environment but actively working to protect it all around the world.
