Muhammad, peace be on him, said, “Muslims will always earn the reward of charity
for planting a tree, sowing a crop
and then birds, humans, and animals eat from it”
(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Dalai Lama’s words really got me. This isn’t about you or me. Its about every citizen of this planet. I include in that all the species who we share the universe with. I include birds, rainforests, whales, panda bears…and on an on it goes. Quran tells us every type of creature is a community of believers.
“Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.”
-Native American proverb-
There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth,
nor a being that flies on its wings, but (forms part of) communities like you.
Nothing have we omitted from the Book,
and they (all) shall be gathered to their Lord in the end.
