About this Event
Rajab is the month to plant the seeds of Ramadan, Shaban we water them and in the month of Ramadan we harvest.
Join us for our sowing seeds series as we honour this tradition of preparing the soil/soul for the blessed month of Ramadan. Each session is in preparation for our ‘Ethical Iftar Challenge’. Where we challenge ourselves to Eat Less Meat, Use less single use plastic and Reduce food waste.
This year Ramadan will be a time to nourish our inner and outer role of stewardship.

About the Green Deen Tribe:
The Green Deen Tribe is a Rabbani Project initiative inspired by Ibrahim Abdul Matin’s book “Green Deen: What Islam Teaches about Protecting the Planet” which seeks to reconnect to the integral relationship of nature and the Islamic teachings of spirituality and tending to the Earth. The idea that through deepening our understanding of the role of Khalifa and our connection to the Earth, we deepen our love and relationship with Allah and the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). As Muslims, our relationship with the Earth is an integral part of our belief and Divine connection. Over the past few years, we have hosted film screenings, retreats, workshops, walks, and other spaces with the intent of holding nature in a sacred space.
