Earth Day was established in 1970 to raise awareness about the environment.  Islam however, did more than that; it provided clear directives for action, as early as the seventh century.  The Quran is filled with ayats and the Sunnah is filled with actions, on how to be stewards of the Earth.  The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “the Earth is a Mosque.” You can pray anywhere. The entire planet is meant to be a place for worship of its Creator. You can kneel down in awe and gratitude of Allah on grass, on sand, on a mountain, in a cornfield.  Therefore, the planet and its people deserve to be protected.
