Ten Green Hadeeths

Presenting ten evergreen hadeeths of the glorious Prophet Muhammad, sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam.

GreenThumb2 Plant a tree even if it is your last deed:

1. Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam said, “If the Hour (the day of Resurrection) is about to be established and one of you was holding a palm shoot, let him take advantage to plant it before the Hour is established.” (Authenticated by Al-Albani)

GreenThumb2 Planting trees is a renewable source of hasanat:

2. Anas also reported that the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam said, “If a Muslim plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it, it is regarded as a charitable gift (sadaqah) for him.” (Bukhari)

GreenThumb2 Conserve resources even when used for rituals:

3. Abdullah ibn Amr ibn Al-`Aas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam passed one day by Sa`d ibn Abi Waqas (May Allah be pleased with him) while he was performing wudu’ (ritual cleaning of body parts in preparation for prayer). The Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam asked Sa`d, “Why is this wastage?” Sa`d replied “Is there wastage in wudu also?” The Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam said, “Yes, even if you are at a flowing river.” (Ahmad and authenticated Ahmad Shakir)

GreenThumb2 Keeping environment clean is important:

4. Mu`adh (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam warned, “Beware of the three acts that cause you to be cursed: relieving yourselves in shaded places (that people utilize), in a walkway or in a watering place.” (Ranked sound, hasan, by Al-Albani)

5. Abu Zarr Al-Ghafari (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam said, “Removing harmful things from the road is an act of charity (sadaqah).” (Authenticated by Al-Albani)

GreenThumb2 No for over-consumption! Consider recycling and fixing before buying new items:

6. Abdullah ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam said, “The believer is not he who eats his fill while his neighbor is hungry.” (Authenticated by Al-Albani)

7. Asked about what the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam used to do in his house, the Prophet’s wife, `A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her), said that he used to repair his shoes, sow his clothes and used to do all such household works done by an average person. (Authenticated by Al-Albani)

8. The Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam said, “Whoever kills a sparrow or anything bigger than that without a just cause, Allah will hold him accountable on the Day of Judgment.”  The listeners asked, “O Messenger of Allah, what is a just cause?” He replied, That he will kill it to eat, not simply to chop off its head and then throw it away. (AnNasa’i)

GreenThumb2 Animals should be cared for:

9. Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam said, “A man felt very thirsty while he was on the way, there he came across a well. He went down the well, quenched his thirst and came out. Meanwhile he saw a dog panting and licking mud because of excessive thirst. He said to himself, “This dog is suffering from thirst as I did.” So, he went down the well again, filled his shoe with water, held it with his mouth and watered the dog. Allah appreciated him for that deed and forgave him.” The Companions said, “O Allah’s Messenger! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals?” He replied: “There is a reward for serving any living being.” (Bukhari)

10. Abdullah ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam said, “A woman entered the (Hell) Fire because of a cat which she had tied, neither giving it food nor setting it free to eat from the vermin of the earth.” (Bukhari)
