Our Roots

The Green Deen Tribe aims to shed light on Islam’s forgotten focus and relationship with nature and the environment.  We host film  screenings, retreats, workshops and outings to encourage us city dwellers to embrace, learn, love, respect and be nature.

 We believe that the environmental crisis is also a spiritual one and so part of the response should also be one that looks at healing our own spiritual connection and state. We use practices, teachings, and traditions based on the Prophetic tradition and Sacred Quranic text to encourage and create sustainable changes to our everyday lifestyles. This reconnection deepens our connection to Allah through nature and allows us to make steps towards truly embodying the role of stewardship

The Seed

The Green Deen Tribe was found in 2013 as part of the Rabbani Project as a platform for creativity and spirituality. In its early days, the Tribe held regular events such as film screenings, talks and a Green Deen Market at the School Of African Studies with the intention of serving the school’s community. The focus was on engaging with themes such as green living, sacred Islamic art, prophetic healing, permaculture and the role of the feminine in Islamic spirituality.

The Green Deen Tribe reignited when its founder, Rabiah Mali completed a Spiritual Ecology fellowship with St Ethelburgs, a space that nourished leaders in nature rooted in their own traditions. From this, the Green Deen Tribe piloted its first retreat in 2017 in Maceneth, Wales with eleven women.

 

The women participated in dhikr, attempted oil making and geometric art, and went foraging. This retreat started the conversation about spiritual ecology and translating it to an Islamic perspective and this was when the Green Deen Tribe acquired it full shape. The immense popularity of this retreat showed that there was a great interest and need for Muslim women to connect to nature and each other, and to simply go wild in nature.

The Companions said, “O Allah’s Messenger! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals?” He replied: “There is a reward for serving any living being.”

Never be without remembrance of Him, for His remembrance gives strength and wings to the bird of the Spirit. If that objective of yours is fully realized, that is "Light upon Light." But at the very least, by practicing God's remembrance your inner being will be illuminated little by little and you will achieve some measure of detachment from the world.
