Allah SWT - Created a Balanced Earth
God created nature with different functions, carefullymeasured and meticulously balanced by God:
Everything with Him is measured”
And the firmament he has raised high, and he has set-upthe balance of everything in order that you (humanity) may not transgress due balance. So maintain the balance with equity and not fall short of it”
One of the functions of the natural environment is toserve humanity:
“He it is who hath made the earth subservient unto you, sowalk in the paths thereof and eat of His providence”
O people! Worship your lord. Who has created you and those before you, so that you may ward off evil.
Who hathappointed the earth a resting place for you and the sky a canopy and causeth water to pour down from the sky, thereby producing fruits as food for you. And do not set up rivals to Allah when yeknow better.
