“Allah does not love wasters” – Fazlun Khalid.

Fazlun Khalid is one of the world’s leading Muslim environmentalists, the founder of the Islamic Foundation for Ecology and Environmental Sciences (IFEES) in Birmingham.

In his new book Signs on the Earth: Islam, Modernity and the Climate Crisis, Khalid calls for a radical reconsideration of prevailing models of ‘development’. From an historical overview he sets out future challenges, including reformulating the Islamic legal tradition to take the ecological dimension seriously. Recognising that environmental concerns are a collective responsibility, he calls on people of all faiths and none, to work together to leave future generations a planet on which they will not only survive but thrive.

Join Khalid for this candid, informative conversation with author Shaykh Abdalhaqq Bewley.
