by Muzammal Hussain, Founder of WIN

Several months later in early 2004, I used an Islamic environmental elist I had developed over the years (later called Ecobites) as a vehicle to publicise my intention to form a network in London, which is where I felt there would be greatest potential, even though I was then living in Brighton. The first meeting of just three people took place on January 10th 2004 in my parents home, and with sustained effort the group became established. Eight months later on September 5th 2004, this new group decided on an official name: the London Islamic Network for the Environment, or LINE.

Profile: Muslim Green Team

Muslim Green Team is a campaign of the Service Corps department of the Muslim American Society (MAS). It began in 2008 in the Bay Area chapter of MAS. MAS believes that living a “greener” lifestyle is not only healthier and socially responsible, but an essential and mandatory component of a Muslim’s life.

To this end, MAS Service Corps established Muslim Green Team. It is a comprehensive, grassroots (pun intended!), environmental campaign, promoting environmentally conscious and sustainable practices in all spheres of human activity.
The primary objectives of Muslim Green Team are:

  • To fulfill our duty to Allah (swt) in adopting environmentally friendly practices.
  • To contribute to the increasingly global effort to reverse the effects of environmentally-irresponsible practices.
  • To raise awareness about environmental issues within the Muslim community.
  • To demonstrate the environmental message of Islam.
  • To contribute the unique, Islamic perspective of the environment to the national and global environmental conversation.
