Day 9 Planting Trees

I made 2 drawings and I could not choose.

There is a Hadith (Saying of the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) which inspired me to make this drawing:

“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 of even one second before the Hour is established to plant it.” – Al-Albani.


Whilst making the drawing I was listening to London Grammer “Strong” and their lyrics struck me:

Yeah and man seems so strong
Yeah and man speaks so long
But never been so wrong

The way we are treating our world is ‘so wrong’. And that Hadith indicates that we should never stop doing good, even if everything around us is falling apart. Even if it seems as if that one small action would only be a drop in the ocean. The true fruits of your actions will be reaped in the next world.
