  Educational Program for Tree Plantation and Nurturing
Daar us Salaam: Nature Walk and Tree Plantation

Rahmat e Khudaa-wandi (rains) welcomed the guests at Daar us Salaam on Sunday morning and it happened to be a great experience and golden day-dawn for the members of Dars e Haatemi where Mukaasir Maulaa explained them about the important aspects of Tree Plantation.  Maulaa demonstrated the way saplings should be planted and what care should be taken in maintaining the growth and health of that plant for about 3 months.

Maulaa addressed the gathering by showing them different types of fruit-bearing plants where one should always keep an eye on the amount of water, sunlight, trimming, cleaning and manure.  Each plant requires different type of treatment and nurturing.  It has been generally noticed that, people do have enthusiasm and interest in tree plantation but what really happens is that after plantation the saplings are left unattended and at nature's mercy.  After monsoon most of the saplings die and the whole exercise of the plantation drive becomes futile.  Plant responsibly but don't do it otherwise.

A day before the program at Daar us Salaam, the same program was held at our Pratapnagar Qabarastaan by Zenith School SSC students.  Maulaa showed them practically how to plant a tree.  The students were encouraged to take care by giving personal attention to the newly planted saplings.
