Video: Tariq Ramadan Talks About the Environment

“This edition of Islam and Life asks how Muslims should respond to an increase in world consumption and industrialization to protect the environment. Islam identifies humanity as Supreme Being. It is an obligation for humanity to be responsible for the planet which they share with other forms of life.

“If we come back to Islamic traditions, we find out that from the very beginning respecting the nature, other creatures and environment has been very important. Muslims should avoid extravagance and luxury. Western Muslims have to do more than those poor Muslims in Africa and Asia to reduce their consumption in the west; it needs a paradigm shift.”
