“The Qur’an refers very often to nature as a reflection of Allah’s power of creation, and it says, look at the mountains, the rivers, the trees, the flowers, as evidence of Allah’s love for the people whom He has created.

Today, I look at the environment and I say to you, I believe Allah is smiling upon you, and may His smile always be upon you.”

— His Highness the Aga Khan speaking in a mountainous setting in Badakhshan in 1995.
