Muslim teachings on stewardship and effects on mus

  1. Muslims have been given free will by Allah so it is their duty to do all they can to prevent the earth being damaged by pollution. This would lead a muslim to burn less fossil fuels.
  2. Muslims have an important sense of brothehood, the Ummah. The environment should be protected for the sake of others, especially the poor. Muslims would act as stewards by making sure the world's resources are shared fairly, especially with poorer countries.
  3. Mulims believe on Judgement Day they will be judges on how they behaved and whether they have been a good Khalifah. This will make a muslim care for the environment by supporting work of groups who try to conserve resources.
  4. Muhammad said "whoever plants a tree and diligently looks after it until it matures and bears fruit is rewarded".This suggests that if Muslims act as Khalifaks, they will be rewarded. This wold lead a Muslim to look after the world e.g by recycling.
