Canada Tackles Environment during Islamic History Month

To help mark Islamic History Month in Canada this October, events and information have been put together to celebrate the link between Islam and the Environment. As well as a lecture by Dr. Hind Al-Abadaleh and Dr. Muzaffar Iqbal on the Environment theme, a leaflet has been uploaded with some useful information.  Download the FINAL_IHMC_BROCHURE_2010 here.

Highlights include:

  • Windmills were invented in 7th century for a Persian caliph- 500 years before the first windmill was seen in Europe. Go Muslim Wind-Power!
  • In the 9th century, botanist Al-Dinawair wrote a botanical enclopedia on plants which consisted of 6 volumes.
  • “There is none amongst the belivers who plants a tree, or sows a seed, and then a bird or a person, or an animal eats thereof, but is regard as giving a charitable gift (for which there is a great recompense).” Shahih Bukhari 3:513.

According to their website: “Islamic History Month was concieved to motivate and inspire Canadian Muslims to recognize and shre Islamic history, heritage and culture with their fellow Canadians during the month of October.”
