Year-Round Deed

images36.jpg 

 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.

  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- http://dontbesadblog.wordpress.com/2007/12/28/tree-seed/

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

    Kind regards,

    Dont be sad
