Some source material for the green Islamic sermon/khutbah
The sermon/khutbah is an important means for inspiring believers to become actively engaged, by helping people understand what the Qur’an and Sunnah teach us about God’s Creation, our relationship to it, and how this is interrelated with our connection to God.
14th April 2013 was Green Khutbah Day in North America, where imams delivered green khutbahs, urging their congregations to reduce their impact on the environment. Below are a sample of green khutbahs that your imam can use, or modify.
