A Sustainable Ramadan: Extending the Values to our Planet
Updated: Jul 14
As stewards of the planet, it is our responsibility to ensure that the environment and resources are used sustainably. It is crucial to keep in mind that the true meaning of Ramadan is not indulgence, but rather self-control and moderation. We can ensure that we are carrying out our responsibility as stewards while also reaping spiritual rewards from this blessed month by being aware of how much we consume.
This Ramadan, Al Masaood initiated a campaign titled “Green Ramadan,” in which we connected the Sustainable Development Goals to the exemplary values that are ushered in by the holy month of Ramadan. In this campaign, we highlighted the similarities between the principles and how, by embracing the spirit of the month and the spirit of Islam as a whole, we can achieve a significant number of the Sustainable Development Goals set forth by the United Nations and have a positive impact.
