Nature and environment have always played an important role in the lives of Muslims. Islam has recommended its followers to protect and preserve them. The Messenger of Allah – peace be upon him – said: “A Muslim who plants a tree or grows a crop, and then, a man, bird or animal eats from it, it will be charity on his behalf".
Islam is a universal religion in that its Prophet was sent to all peoples of the world, regardless of their race, colour, culture, traditions and geographical location, as the Qur’an states, “We have only sent you (O Muhammad) as a mercy to all the worlds.” (Soorat Al-Anbiyaa’, 21:107)

Allah had sent Muhammad to perfect the morals and to call people to good manners, chastity, honesty and holding ties of kinship.
