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 ‘path’ or ‘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.
