We are pleased to announce the launch of Al-Mizan: Covenant for the Earth which took place yesterday, Tuesday 27th of February, at the Media Center at the UNEP (United Nations Environment Program) compound in Nairobi under the patronage of H. E. Ms. Leila Benali, President of UNEA(United Nations Environmental Assembly) and other dignitaries. The launch was live streamed on this Channel. Al-Mizan can now be downloaded in Arabic and English from the Al-Mizan page and also at https://www.almizan.earth/.

Al-Mizan is the work of a large group of Muslim scholars from across the globe and different Islamic backgrounds led by the Islamic Foundation for Ecology and Environmental Sciences (IFEES/EcoIslam) UK, Islamic World Educational,Scientific and Cultural Organization (IESCO) Morocco, Uskudar University Turkey, Hamad University and Quranic Botanic Gardens Qatar and Anaq el-Ard Saudi Arabia. The Covenant in addition to being endorsed by the Muslim Council of Elders has been reviewed by more than 300 Islamic scholars and institutions. This endeavour was facilitated by UNEP’s Faith for Earth Coalition.

The Covenant presents an Islamic outlook on the environment in a bid to strengthen local, regional, and international actions to combat the triple planetary crises defined by the United Nations as climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution. It is a global endeavour to engage Muslims from all levels of society in the development and adoption of this call.
