Asalaamu Alaikum,

Tomorrow, Wednesday February 10 from 4-5:30 PM (Dar al-Hijrah Library) you are invited to join me and others environmental leaders in our community to discuss how to can collectively turn Dar al-Hijrah into one of the greenest mosques in North America insh’Allah.

Over the past few years, a number of individuals have put in considerable effort to work on green projects within the Dar al-Hijrah community. From Ramadan (and beyond) recycling programs to community gardens, Alhumudullilah community members have dedicated a lot of time and effort to growing closer to Allah through their service to our masjid. May their efforts and intentions be accepted. Ameen.

I am excited to announce a new initiative that seeks to combine our efforts into one committee. It is through our systematic collaboration insh’Allah that the sustainable practices of our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW can grow within our own hearts and spread to the brothers and sisters we prostrate besides in our prayers.

The idea here is the play the long game; to directly change the culture of Dar al-Hijrah to be one of moderate consumption and care for all of creation.

The committee format relies upon all segments of our community to participate–raising their voices, and acting upon their intentions.

Please be on time for the meeting. JAK
