Year-Round Deed


 Planting plants and trees in appropriate places is an act of great merit. Anas has quoted the following Prophetic saying: –

“A man plants a tree or sows a field and a man or bird eats from it, the tree or field becomes a source of sadaqah for him.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

 Wow, when I first read this my personal reaction was what benefit and merit of advantage can be taken by all of us to be able to go out and plant a tree. Giving back to the environment is an action that rarely happens but yet so easy to be recognized as a good deed.

  1. Yes, I have heard this somewhere but very long back and almost forgot it. Thanks for reminding me again …………….. 🙂


  2. Asalaamu alikum,

    Suhan’allah* what a beautiful hadith you have shared with us. I love trees. They have been mentioned quite many times in the Qur’an and in the Ahadith too.

    A simple thing we can all do it give tree seed a chance when they fall upon the pavement-

    May Allah swt give us the understanding of the Sunnah and preserve the environment. You may like to visit the website of EcoIslam (still being developed).

    Kind regards,

    Dont be sad
