Mission: GO GREEN THIS MAY
We all have a duty to this Earth but we have forgotten how to take care of it. In Surah Al-Anam, Allah says, "And it is He (God) who has made you successors (khala'ifa) upon the earth and has raised some of you above others in degrees [of rank] that He may try you through what He has given you. " (Qur'an Surah Al-Anam:165).
Do you remember this faintly now?
We keep consuming more and more, we've forgotten to produce, and how much of a good contribution to the Earth it is to plant a tree. But don't give up hope.
Come #ReportingForDuty and learn how to reverse the cycle of destruction and unconscious consumption.
