The Environment

There are hundreds of verses of the Quran that call on believers to reflect on the wonders of nature and to consider the perfect balance in which Allah maintains the natural world. In the Quran, men and women are described as God's vicegerents on Earth. God created nature in balance ("al-mizan") and mankind's responsibility is to maintain this fragile equilibrium through wise governance and sound personal conduct.
