Why should we care about protecting the environment?

The environment is a gift from Almighty Allah that sustains us all. It provides us with the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the resources we utilize to meet our needs.

Our planet’s health is intricately connected to our well-being, and the impact of environmental degradation can be seen in the form of climate change, deforestation, pollution, and loss of biodiversity.

Increased greenhouse gas emissions have led to global warming, rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and disruptions to ecosystems and human communities.

By caring for the environment, we ensure a sustainable future for ourselves and future generations.
