  Tree Plantation at Qabarastaan
14th Zul Hijjah 1441, 3rd August 2020

  With Du'aa e khayr and Nawaazishaat of our Waalid e Ruhaani Saiyedna saheb TUS, newly formed Alavi Nature Group had organized its first ever initiative for Tree Plantation and Protection at our Qabarastaan, Jannat ul Mumineen, Vadodara on 3rd August Monday.  Enthusiast Nature lovers participated and made the program worth in contributing to make our Mother Earth more greener, lively and soothing.  We have to make our houses, our surroundings and our Jamaa'at properties more lively and green. Once upon a time our Qabarastaan was dotted with all types of huge fruit-bearing trees.  There was a small garden in the sahen of Nooraani Masjid.  There used to be many pots in the sahen of Bustaan e Badri.  Lets collectively revive all these lost green treasure.

Under the aegis of Anjuman-e-Fakhri, Tree Plantation program was held at Jannat ul-Mumineen Qabarastaan, Pratapnagar, on the dast-e-mubaarak of Mukaasir saheb Saiyedi Mohammad Nuruddin saheb (dm) on 17 Shawwaal 1436/2-8-2015, Sunday.  Saiyedi saheb said that, “This is a unique thing which should be done periodically and it adds to the safe and serene living and makes our environment rich and lively.  I love trees and while laying it at Daar us-Salaam, I myself do it with utmost care.  Before the Intiqaal of Maulaa Muqaddas Bawaji saheb, he expressed his wish to grow different Mango trees (amba).  To fulfill his wish I planted different amba variety at Daar us-Salaam near his room where he used to spend his whole evening.  I am happy that today you all have planned to plant saplings of fruit-bearing trees and it has been mentioned in Qur’an-e-Hakeem as “Shajarah Mubaarak”.  Mumineen are like fruit-offering and flower-blossoming plants where people readily loves to go to get its fragrance and taste. 

The mubaarak tree of Panjatan-e-Paak is always evergreen in which Rasoolullaah (saws) is its roots, Maulaana ‘Ali (as) is its trunk, Maulaatona Faatemah (as) is its branches, Imaam Hasan and Imaam Husain (as) is its flowers and fruits and Shi’ah is its leaves. ”

Saiyedi saheb added that, “Rasoolullaah (saws) did naseehat to ahl-e-Islaam that Allaah Ta’aala has not decided the reward of these three things meaning it bears huge reward when done keeping in mind the importance of the service to Makhlooq-mankind.  1) Planting Trees for better environment, 2) Constructing Roads for better commuting and 3) Digging Wells for better household.  If people follow this with sincerity and cooperation then there will remain no doubt that it will help in creating strong base for social and environmental benefit.  Surely “PLANTS” stands for “Please Let A Nature To Survive” and “TREE” stands for “Treasure and Resource for Environmental Enrichment”.  Since the creation of Humans, trees hold an undisputed place in bringing liveliness, peace and tranquility to their lives.  The tree of “Tooba” in paradise is such that every jannati gets an opportunity to have a taste of its fruits and every fruit has a different taste and aroma.  Its shadow is spread everywhere in Jannat.  So, this place is Jannat ul-Mumineen where mumineen are being buried since 300 yrs and to plant trees in such a mubaarak place is like making efforts to get the shadow of Tooba in paradise.”
