Muhammad’s Teachings to Preserve the Environment
He linked the preservation of the environment to the belief in one God, Who created all beings. Therefore, a believer in God cannot cause mischief to the environment because it is part of God’s Kingdom. Harming the environment and wasting or polluting its resources (water, plants, animals, soil, air, marine ecosystem, etc.) is not acceptable from an Islamic point of view.
“Any Muslim who plants a seed that grows to a level, people or animals or birds can benefit or eat from it, as a Sadaqa” (a charity that is rewarded by God). Prophet Muhammad
