  THE WINNER OFHEARTS MOHAMMED  W hat Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace be uponhim) Said about the Environment The Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) recognized the importance of lookingafter the environment. He taught that human beings were God¶s agents on the earthand it is their duty to protect it. On one occasion, he said: ³The world is green and beautiful, and God has appointed you his guardian over it.´  (Sahih Muslim)He encouraged believers to plant trees and regarded it a sin to destroy them without avalid reason. He said: ³There is none amongst the believers who plants a tree or sows a seed and then a bird,a person or an animal eats from it, except that it is regarded as a charity [for which hecan expect God¶s pleasure and reward].´  (Sahih al-Bukhari)Keeping the earth green, productive and of benefit to humans and animals is a mostnoble concern according to Islam.We learn from the Prophet (blessings and peace beupon him) that the sowing of plants is such a righteous action in the sight of God that itis encouraged, even if it were a person¶s final act on earth. The Prophet (blessings andpeace be upon him) said:³Even when the Day of Judgment comes (upon you), if anyone has a seed in his hand,he should plant it.´ (Ahmad)The Prophet considered all of God¶s creations to be important and he believed animals,land, trees and the rest of the environment and natural resources should have rightsand be protected.  W hat the Prophet (blessings and peace beupon him) Said about the Treatment of Animals The Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him)taught that harming, abusing or beating animalswas a sinful act and caused the displeasure of God while protecting animals, showing mercy andkindness to them were good actions, which Godwould reward. He said that a Muslim wasresponsible for the care of animals, so much sothat an ill-treated animal will testify against theone who abused it on the Day of Judgment.The Prophet forbade people to capture birds, burnanthills or beat animals. He also forbade thetaking of animals as target and killing them for mere sport. He used to praise anyone whoshowed mercy to animals. At the same time, hewould criticize anyone who used to hurt animals,tire them, or make them carry a heavy load for long periods.  T he Messenger of God (blessings and peace be upon him) once said:³Whilst a man was walking on a road, he became very thirsty.He found awell, climbed down it, drank his fill, and then came out.He then saw a dogpanting hard and eating the damp earth.So he said: µThis dog is thirsty, likeI was.¶ So he again went down into the well and filled his leather sock withwater.Holding his sock in his mouth, he came out of the well and then gavethe water to the dog.Therefore, God appreciated the man and forgave himhis sins.´ The Companions asked: µO Messenger of God! Do we get rewardfor being kind even to animals?¶ The Prophet (blessings and peace beupon him) replied: µThere is reward for showing kindness to every livingthing.¶´ (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)Once the Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) passed by somechildren who were shooting arrows at a ram, he rebuked them, saying:³Do not wound the poor animal.´ (Sunan an-Nas¶i)He also once ordered a man who had taken the chicks of a bird from their nest to return them from where he got them, since it would cause distress totheir mother who was trying to protect them.(Sahih Muslim)
