(A story of Abu Darda RA)
This is the beautiful story of one opportunist who did not let go of his chance to get guaranteed pleasure in the Hereafter.
There was a hypocrite companion of the Prophet who cultivated his garden next to the property of an orphan.

The orphan claimed that a specific palm tree was on his property and therefore belonged to him. The hypocrite rejected the claim
So the orphan boy went to the Messenger of Allah to complain.

He ﷺ measured the two gardens and found that the palm tree did indeed belong to the hypocite.
The orphan erupted crying. Seeing this, the Prophet ﷺ asked the hypocrite “Would you give him the palm tree and for you is a palm tree in Jannah?”

However, the hypocrite rejected the prophet ﷺ’s offer and missed the opportunity and went away angry.
But someone else saw the opportunity – Abu Darda. He went to the Prophet ﷺ and asked,

“Ya RasulAllah, if I buy the tree from him and give it to the orphan shall I have that tree in Jannah?”

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ replied, “Yes”
Abu Darda had chased after the hypocrite and asked, “Would you sell that tree to me for my entire garden?” 😳

(Abu Darda had a garden of 600 TREES!!!!!)🤯

The hypocrite answered, “Take it, for there is no good in a tree that was complained to the Prophet about.”
Immediately Abu Darda went home and found his wife and children playing in the garden.

“Leave the garden!” he shouted “We’ve sold it to Allah! We’ve sold it to Allah!”

Some of his children had dates in their hand and he snatched the dates from them
and threw them back into the garden. “We’ve sold it to Allah!”

When Abu Darda was later martyred in the battle of Uhud, RasulAllah ﷺ stood over his slain body and remarked

“How many shady palm trees does Abu Darda now have in Paradise?”
Subhanallah this beautiful emotional story of how Abu Darda was willing to lose everything for the sake of a tree jannah.

It’s very easy to read this thread and say “subhanallah” and continue scrolling on your TL
However take a minute and access your life, WHAT ARE YOU SACRIFICING FOR ALLAH?


Arnt you ashamed you want the same paradise as Abu Darda?

Look around your environment, in the muslim ummah, there is a need for a million Abu dardas today.

Sacrifice your wealth, energy, knowledge and time for the sake of Allah.

May Allah re-unite us with Abu Darda and his master Muhammad ﷺ in Jannatul firdaus 🤲🏽
