  • The noble Quran contains a message not only concerning human life in itself, but also the world of nature and our responsibility towards it. It orders Muslims to live in harmony not only among themselves but also with the rest of God’s creation. On the basis of its teachings Muslims created a civilization that over the centuries was in balance with what we now call the natural environment. Colonialism and certain weakness in the practice of Islamic teachings relating to the care of His creation caused most Muslim countries to become impervious to their duties towards the natural environment as a result of which some of the most polluted cities, towns, and rivers in the world are now to be found in the Islamic world.

    The efforts of the Islamic Reporting Initiative are, therefore, to be highly commended and supported as a religion duty by all Muslims who are aware of the seriousness of the environmental crisis. May the efforts of the Islamic Reporting Initiative and other organizations with similar aims succeed by God’s grace and the efforts of dedicated Muslim men and women. Our future depends on this spiritual jihād carried out with God’s succor in this holy effort.

  • Islam has outlined certain fundamental principles that are in line with human rights, among others protection of life (hifz al-nafs); protection of religion (hifz al-dîn); preservation of lineage (hifz al-nasl); protection of property rights (hifz al-mâl); and protection of the mind (hifz al-aql). These principles are also stipulated in international bills of human rights, namely the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
