Rights of Plants & Trees in Islam


Islam permits to benefit from the fruits of the trees but forbids cutting them or breaking their branches without a genuine reason. On the contrary, Islam commands to preserve trees and encourages any reproduction process or activities which help in growing more trees.


Allah’’s Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said,

“If the Hour [of the Last Day] took place while one of you is holding a palm-tree seedling [to plant in the dirt], then if he can plant it before standing up, he should do it.”

Musnad Ahmad, Hadith No. 12901.

Rights of Plants & Trees in Islam

Islam considers planting of useful plants and beneficial trees as charity for which a Muslim is rewarded.

Allah’’s Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said:

“Never a Muslim plants something or cultivates it, of which birds, human beings or animals eat, but a reward is given to him for this charity.”

Muslim, Hadith No. 2195.
