This Tree Is A Parable Of Life Itself

 

“See you not how Allah sets forth a parable? - A goodly word as a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the sky (i.e. very high). Giving its fruit at all times, by the Leave of its Lord and Allah sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may remember.†[14:24-25]

 

This tree is a parable of life itself.

 

Just as the tree is the building block of life, emaan is the building block of spiritual life.

 

The roots are firm. This shows that it is strong and powerful. It cannot be moved or shaken. In the same way, emaan must be firm in a person’s heart. A person must have a firm foundation and stability with the roots of tawheed.

 

The branches reach up to Allah and towards jannah. They cover up everything else and cannot be covered. In the same way, emaan cannot be covered up. Nothing can conceal this tree that reaches all the way to the sky. This means when you have emaan, you will see it manifested in your actions.

 

A tree like this is a landmark that people look to, take direction from, and take inspiration from. A person with emaan becomes the anchor of the community, and people will look to him for an example.

 

The tree of emaan gives you comfort like shade and fruit. There is no tree on the face of this earth that is fruitful at all times, except the tree of emaan. It can nourish you at any time or place. Only the tree of emaan gives different types of fruits. The fruits also replenish themselves all year, in the same way that emaan needs to be constantly replenished.

 

This parable shows us the importance of having the correct theology of our beliefs – when we establish that firm root, we bear the fruit.

 

It is the parable of La Ilaha illallah: the Goodly Word. Whoever plants la ilaha illallah in his heart and nurtures it, the fruits it will bear him are no less than entrance into Gardens as vast as the Heavens and the Earth.

Only the other day, I was hearing in a speech about the tree being a symbol for Islam:

 

here it is in audio: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetradicalmiddleway.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=42&Itemid=73"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetradicalmiddleway.co.uk/index.ph...2&Itemid=73[/url]

 

or here's the transcript for it: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetradicalmiddleway.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=33&Itemid=45"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetradicalmiddleway.co.uk/index.ph...3&Itemid=45[/url]
