• May We Go Green Campaign Four Friends Saving the Earth by FiTree, a Muslim youth organisation in Singapore

    Calling Earthlings to Report For Duty

    This May, it's time to learn green habits &

    put them in practice.
    This May, we will be #ReportingForDuty.

    This May, We Go Green.

  • 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.
