In a bustling city named Greenville, two curious little kids, Sulaiman and Khadija, enjoy their day in a park with their parents. They love animals and admire nature very much. While playing, they suddenly saw a dog eating a plastic bag with some cream. They gave the dog some food and threw the plastic in the dustbin. As they move towards the beach, they see some people cutting down the trees where many birds live. And now, they saw fish entangled in plastic ropes and bags on the beach.

They sat on the beach and watched kites in the sky, and suddenly, a few birds fell from the sky, bleeding and their feathers cut off because of sharp-edged threads used to fly the kites.

While returning home, they observed a very bad smell everywhere. They asked their parents about the smell, and they showed them mountains of trash in the landfill they were passing by.

Both of them were very upset, and they went to Maryam Mam’s class and asked her what was happening around them. And why are animals suffering so much? Maryam Ma’am told them that all these things are happening because of our ignorance and overconsumption, which leads to pollution and the environmental crisis. Then both of them asked, what can we do now, ma’am? How to stop it?

She answered that sustainability and minimalism are solutions to the pressing issues.

If we consume things mindfully, we can save the environment. We need to stop using plastic, not buy things we don’t need, recycle and reuse our stuff, plant more trees, etc.

Sulaiman and Khadija returned home silently, having deep thoughts about what their teachers taught them.

In the evening, in their Islamic studies class, Sana Mam narrated the inspiring story of “Minimal Muhammad,” highlighting the prophet’s simple and sustainable lifestyle and how it can help humans live mindful lives.

Worried about the future they had learned about in class, Khadija connected the dots between Minimal Muhammad’s life and their current environmental challenges. Both of them are now very happy because they got the answers to all their questions. Inspired, they delved deeper into the teachings of the prophet as the superhero and saviour of the Earth.

Eager to spread awareness, the duo began creating vibrant paintings and posters showcasing the minimalistic lifestyle of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). They strategically placed these posters around the city – near water wastage areas, restaurants, markets, parks, beaches and places promoting overconsumption.

They designed a poster depicting a grim future to convey the potential consequences of overconsumption. The young activists didn’t stop there; they organised a gathering, encouraging classmates to bring their pre-loved toys for a swap instead of buying new ones, promoting sustainability.

Sulaiman and Khadija posed thought-provoking questions to their peers while seeking knowledge. They explored the lifecycle of products, from their creation to the environmental impact after disposal, fostering a deeper understanding among their classmates.

In the heart of Greenville, these determined students, inspired by Minimal Muhammad, became the catalysts for change. Through their artistic endeavours and educational initiatives, they hoped to create a more sustainable and minimalistic future that echoed the teachings of their newfound superhero – Prophet Muhammad, the true saviour.
