Sisters Magazine: Green Sunnah

Sisters Magazine, which can be a bit hit and miss most of the time, have recently re-launched their website and will now inshallah be publishing a monthly magazine. It’s really great to see them up and running again, especially as they have a section dedicated to Green Islam.

On the website they have a great little feature by Najma Mohamed, who is an environmental Muslim writer from Cape Town, South Africa that I thought would be great to post it on ‘A World of Green Muslims’. Here are the highlights!

6 Steps to a Green Ramadan!

ramadan go green guide picture ramadan gardenArwa offers a 6 step guide to greening this year’s Ramadan starting August 11.

With the month of Ramadan quickly approaching, Muslims across the world are beginning to prepare for the month of fasting from sunrise to sunset. Food supplies are stocked up (ironic, I know), appointments are rescheduled and preparations are made for the month of spiritual rediscovery.

And what better way to do this then by ‘greening’ your Ramadan.

Islam states that humans are the stewards of the earth, with a duty to protect it from harm but are we doing enough? Well, I have put together a basic list of things all Muslims from the US to the Middle East can all do this Ramadan (and hopefully the rest of the year) to protect the environment and any ideas you want to add are welcome!

Interview with Eco-Muslimah Kristiane Backer

“For me green living is part and parcel of being a good Muslim- it’s a spiritual requirement.”

Kristiane Backer has undergone various transformations in her life but none as big as the move from a rock and roll lifestyle as MTV reporter, interviewing the Rolling Stones and Lenny Kravitz, to an Eco-Muslimah promoting the green message of Islam.

A fateful meeting with famous cricketer Imran Khan at the pinnacle of her success in the late ’90s, drew her attention to Islam and also the realization that something was missing in her life. Inspired by the message of the Qur’an, travel to Muslim countries and the beauty of Sufi poetry, she decided to become a Muslim. Kristiane, who recently launched a campaign which highlights the Prophet’s respect for the environment, took time out of her busy schedule to answer some questions about what it means to be an Eco-Muslimah.
