Sound Of Many Waters

A message from the Islamic Foundation for Ecology and Environmental Sciences [IFEES] :-

“Salam, Shalom and Peace brothers and sisters in humanity : Hope you are in the best of health and faith, Insha’Allah. Please find details of our forthcoming event. Please forward!”

“IFEES and Radical Middle Way (RMW) present: “Question Time: Can Islam meet the Environment Challenge ?” The panel will consist of : Kristane Backer, journalist and ex MTV VJ; Rianne C. ten Veen, Green Creation; Fazlun Khalid, IFEES; Shaykh Babikir Ahmed Babikir.”

Date: Friday 9th July 2010, Time: 6.30-8.30pm; Venue: Toynbee Hall, 28 Commercial Street, London E1 6LS.

“Issues surrounding the environment poise the biggest challenge to the future of mankind. Unless we realise and radically change the way in which we treat the environment we are heading towards unprecedented disaster from which no technology can protect us.”

“Today more people die because of the consequences of our collapsing eco-system than even the senseless wars we are engaged in. In the next three months – if appropriate action is not taken – more people will die in sub- Saharan Africa from famine than all the people who have died in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in the last fifty years.”

“If there is any jihad that can lead to real change in our times it is one aimed at saving our planet from abuse and destruction. In our times Muslims must not only be obligatory eco-warriors but also aware and able to share the Islamic teachings on the environment with their neighbours.”

“In a recent address at Oxford the Prince of Wales shared his conviction that Islam has the potential of making a positive contribution towards the issue of the environmental disaster humanity has created for itself. If that is so how is this likely to happen? What is the essential Islamic contribution towards the solution? Are Muslims able to deliver? Is the rest of the world prepared to listen?”

“Join us for a round-table discussion with leading Muslim environmentalists, scholars and activists as to what Islam has to offer. All welcome, free entrance, limited seats hence pre-registration is required. Light green buffet served.”
