The Inhabitants of Paradise


Narrated Abu Huraira (ra)


Once the Prophet (peace be upon him) was narrating (a story), while a bedouin was sitting with him. "One of  the inhabitants of Paradise will ask Allah to allow him to cultivate the land. Allah will ask him, 'Are you not living in the pleasures you like?' He will say, 'Yes, but I like to cultivate the land.' " The Prophet (peace be upon him) added, "When the man (will be permitted he) will sow the seeds and the plants will grow up and get ripe, ready for reaping and so on till it will be as huge as mountains within a wink. Allah will then say to him, 'O son of Adam! Take here you are, gather (the yield); nothing satisfies you.' " On that, the bedouin said, "The man must be either from Quraish (i.e. an emigrant) or an Ansari, for they are farmers, whereas we are not farmers." The Prophet (peace be upon him) smiled (at this).

Bukhari 3.538
Guidelines
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

Great post!

Thank you for stopping by my site and commenting.
I totally, agree...it is not work if you love what you do.
I have no problem if you would like to post the poem on your site, I think that'd be awesome.
Of course as long as it is under my name.
Take care, have a blessed weekend!

Al`eh,
Your poem matches the ideal theme of my blog, "Life, Nature and Me" therefore I had decided to get your permitian for sharing the poem :"Worthy Woman" with my visitors there.

I hope to see more poems at your blog.

I am really grateful.

Sister, I pray that you also stay well and be blessed.

Thanks!
