In August 2015, Muslim leaders from 20 countries issued a Declaration on Global Climate Change, which calls for an “urgent and radical reappraisal” of the way we use natural resources.
Michigan IPL friend and Board member Imam Achmat Salie recently shared his views on what Islam has to say about climate change with videographer Peter Sinclair. This video was originally posted on Sinclair’s website.
“Islam preaches optimism. It’s one thing just to cry out, ‘this is happening!’ At the same time, we must say, ‘this is how we’re going to fix it.’ The Qur’an encourages us to become the solution.”
