Connecting the green dots…


A big shout out to Arwa Aburawa and others from The Green Prophet for interviewing me on my thoughts on the environmental challenges in Southeast Asia and the role that women play in it. What an honour it is to be featured along side other awesome green Muslims like Ibrahim Abdul Matin, Kristiane Backer and the ever-so adorable Jeddawis from Naqaa Enterprise.

It’s also great how some of us green Muslims have progressively connected with one another – both online and offline – and sometimes in instances we least expect! The first of these instances was when I met Nadia Janjua, one of the founders of DC Green Muslims, while participating in the 6th World Islamic Economic Forum in Kuala Lumpur in 2010. That was cool 🙂

This is only the beginning and I look forward to a day when all us Green Muslims worldwide get to meet up for some great chats of cups of tea and vegetarian potluck, InshaAllah 🙂
