The way we treat the planet is a reflection of the way we treat ourselves.” This is Ibrahim Abdul-Matin’s mantra. He is author of the new book, “Green Deen: What Islam Teaches About Protecting the Planet.” As our over consumptive ways destroy the Earth, the question becomes, do we not value ourselves enough to take care of where we live? Or do we misunderstand our value and worth as humans and our ability to serve as stewards of the Earth? Ibrahim Abdul-Matin will lead an interactive workshop and discussion to explore these questions and hopefully, find some answers. Come join the Columbia University Muslim Students Association as we empower ourselves to affect change in the environment.
