Thank you for all your messages of condolences on the passing of my uncle. Alhamdulillah, the main theme of all our relatives' posts have been how we were all together to see him this summer. .
My uncle planted these fig trees when he first built this house. As we passed the trees in front of the house each day, majority of us would stop to check for ripe ones. Doesn't get any more fresh, organic, or local than that. .
The Prophet ﷺ is reported to have said, “Whenever Muslims plant a tree, they will earn the reward of charity because of the food that comes from it; and likewise what is stolen from it, what the wild beasts eat out of it, what the birds eat out of it, and what people take from it is charity for them” .
May my uncle find his reward for the sweet figs in paradise. Ameen.
