Garden of Hope...

“Working in garden is like digging knowledge from the earth.”
Karthikeyan V

This is the story about 3 friends. One has a green thumb, the other is afraid of worms and the third one is terrified of bugs. Still, they had a vision.  They hope to plant vegetables and fruits, for charity.

So, together they started their garden from scratch.

They started by planting seeds in small pots for it to grow. Next, they worked on getting the plot of land ready for re-planting. Every time friend no.2 loosens the soil and finds a worm, she would scream. Every time friend no.3 sees a bug, she would run. Being a seasoned gardener, only friend no.1 would calmly dig and loosened the soils without any drama.

In the end, they managed to prepare the plot and planted the new shoots. Phase 1 completed! They are also recruiting more friends.

It is their ardent hope that one day soon, their garden will be turned into a garden of bliss.....Ameen.

Anas reported that the Prophet 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)
