Kashif Shaikh: Greening Sacred Spaced Representative

Assalamua’aikum Dearest Brothers and Sisters,

I humbly request your attendance with myself and other dynamic speakers at below timely, informative, and solution filled session at 33rd ISNA Canada Annual Convention in Ottawa(www.isnacanada.com).

Are Canadian Muslims going green? Facing the environmental challenge.
In the Islamic worldview, human beings are God's vicegerents on Earth. They do not enjoy absolute autonomy, but have been entrusted with the Guardianship of the Earth. The Islamic tradition is rich in references to questions as fundamental as the protection of the environment, animal rights and the definition of human responsibility. Today, the environmental challenge has become a major concern for many Canadians. Is this simply another fashionable political issue-or are we witnessing the birth of a new awareness? This session will explore the important role that Muslims can play in working with their fellow-citizens in creating a lasting guardianship over our planet so they can remain true to their green identity.

Speakers
Bilal Kuspinar, Stephen Hazell, Kashif Shaikh
