A selection of verses from the Holy Quran on the beauty of the Earth

The Earth is green and beautiful, and Allah has appointed you his stewards over it. The whole Earth has been created a place of worship, pure and clean. Whoever plants a tree and diligently looks after it until it matures and bears fruit is rewarded. If a Muslim plants a tree or sows a field and humans and beasts and birds eat from it, all of it is love on his part.

Here are some beautiful verses from the Holy Quran on the creation of the Earth and its beauty.
