Freedom and prosperity of the country are our two conjoined aspirations. Even as the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan fights a burdensome war for the independence of its land, it has not forgotten about its prosperity. If on the one hand bringing prosperity to the country is a sign of patriotism then on the other, it also entails following the commands of Allah and showing gratitude for the blessings.
We consider development of our country as worship because of the instruction of Almighty Allah:
هُوَ أَنْشَأَكُمْ مِنَ الْأَرْضِ وَاسْتَعْمَرَكُمْ فِيهَا
Translation: He brought you forth from the earth and settled you therin
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) has said as reported by Anas bin Malik (RA): If the day of judgment arrived during your lifetime and in your hands was a tree, then plant it [Ahmad].
The Islamic Emirate’s Commission for Agriculture, Livestock, Ushr and Zakat – in accordance with the directives issued by the leader of Islamic Emirate – once again directs all Mujahideen and pious countryman to plant at least one or more fruit or non-fruit tree for the verdancy of the country and calls on all national tradesmen to aid the poor in acquiring a fruit or other commercial plants.
With tree plantation, we would not only have discharged our duty of following the Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW) but would have also developed and beautified our country. This is an everlasting charity and a great path towards prosperity of our country.
