"The servants of the Lord of Mercy are those who walk humbly on the earth, and who, when the foolish address them, reply, ‘Peace’;"
وَعِبَادُ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الَّذِيۡنَ يَمۡشُوۡنَ عَلَى الۡاَرۡضِ هَوۡنًا وَّاِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الۡجٰهِلُوۡنَ قَالُوۡا سَلٰمًا
Green Deen Tribe
The Green Deen Tribe is an initiative inspired by Ibrahim Abdul Matin’s book “Green Deen: What Islam Teaches about Protecting the Planet” which seeks to reconnect to the integral relationship of nature and the Islamic teachings of spirituality and tending to the Earth. The idea that through deepening our understanding of the role of Khalifa and our connection to the Earth, we deepen our love and relationship with Allah and the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). As Muslims our relationship with the Earth is an integral part of our belief and Divine connection. Over the past few years we have hosted film screenings, retreats, workshops, walks and other spaces with the intent of holding nature in a sacred space.
We believe that the environmental crisis is also a spiritual one and so part of the response should also be one that looks at healing our own spiritual connection and state. We use practices, teachings, and traditions based on the Prophetic tradition and Sacred Quranic text to encourage and create sustainable changes to our everyday lifestyles. This reconnection deepens our connection to Allah through nature and allows us to make steps towards truly embodying the role of stewardship
