A farmer did land preparation in a swamp agriculture area of South Kalimantan, Indonesia. Farmers are a noble profession. It is because they give benefits to others as well as other living things by providing food. Planting also makes the environment healthier for all sentient beings. Plants and trees provide extraordinary beauty, shade and natural scenery. In addition, the faithful and patient farmers will gain more glory because all the crops eaten by both humans and animals, and even the stolen ones, are all worth as the alms.
Prophet Muhammad (may peace be upon him) said: “It is not a Muslim planting crops and the plants are eaten by humans, animals or birds; but the plants become alms to him until the Day of Judgment.” (Narrated by Imam Muslim) – (Photo: Kurniawan, 2014, in Flickr)
