Ecology in the QUR' AN

Peace to you,

Here are details of our May monthly forum, a week Sunday. We will be back at the Muslim World League, and hope you can join us.

LINE (London Islamic Network for the Environment) Monthly Forums invites you to:


Date: Sunday 10th May 2009
Time: 2.15pm to 4.45pm
Venue:4th Floor, Muslim World League, 46 Goodge Street, London, W1T 4LU (entrance on the corner of Charlotte Street); Nearest Tubes: Goodge Street (Northern Line), Euston Square (Hammersmith & City, Circle, & Metropolitan Lines) & Warren Street (Victoria Line).

Please note that we're back at the Muslim World League.

Workshop: Facilitated by LINE team

At this month's forum we will continue with our Reflections through the Qur' an series. Through a facilitated workshop we will reflect on the following verse:
He created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions) (Qur' an: 6:73).

We will consider the implications of the above verse in terms of how it frames our relationship with the natural order; and will also relate it to contemporary environmental themes, including climate change. We will also share insights on the relationship between what is presented in this verse, and the concept of fitrah.

Please bring a copy of the Qur' an (with translation, and preferably also commentary) if you have one.

Also within the forum, we will hear feedback from Fast for the Planet (2nd Main event), a Greening Faiths event in Reading to which we contributed, and our eco-weekend with the Hilfield project in Dorset. There will also be a slot for Resource Cycle and we'll look at LINE projects over the coming weeks. No charge and open to all (whether or not you have attended previous LINE forums). Simply turn up for the start time. Donations welcome.
