Islamic Farming: A Toolkit for Conservation Agriculture

This publication may be of particular interest to scholars and/or followers of Islam, agriculturalists, and environmentalists, as it is geared toward Muslim farmers in Africa, a region facing agricultural difficulties due to rapid population growth and climate change. Written by humanitarian, author, and Secretary-General at World Muslim Leadership Forum Husna Ahmad, Islamic Farming: A Toolkit for Conservation Agriculture fuses sustainable farming practices and Islamic principles, especially the idea that Muslims should be stewards of the Earth. The guide was developed in association with the U.K.-based charities Global One and the Alliance of Religions and Conservation (ARC). Much of the content is based on agricultural innovations developed by Islamic cultures in the past which are still applicable today, such as water-conserving irrigation methods, crop rotation, agroforestry, and beekeeping. The principles of sustainable farming espoused in the guide are cleanly summarized through its Six Ps: Plan, Prepare, Plant, Provide, Protect, and Produce. Islamic Farming should be an essential manual for educators who seek to inspire and train Muslim farmers on sustainable agriculture.
