The environmental movement arose as a social movement engaged in resisting hegemonic ways of life and societal structures, including post-industrial capitalism, which caused multiple environmental crises and issues of social justice globally. Environmental organisations in Great Britain have historically been politically active, operating as organisers of collective action and as lobbyists for environmental policy change. The emergence of specifically Islamic environmental organisations has provided a platform from which Muslims resist and struggle to transform British society into a society reflective of their Islamic, and environmental, values. It is noteworthy to see that many of the critiques, in particular those against the capitalist economic system, made by environmental organisations and activists are remarkably similar to those made by Muslims in Great Britain concerned with aligning a compassionate, religio-ethical worldview with the reality of life in a Western post-industrial nation.
