When farmers didn’t say “Insha Allah” before harvest

You can’t even imagine how important it is to say “Insha Allah” with every intention. The holy Quran tells the story of some farmers who didn’t say it before the harvest. – Surah Qalam.

  • Insha Allah means “If Allah wills“.

He was a pious man

Allah narrates that there was a pious man who was blessed with wealth. He owned gardens that produced a lump-sum amount of fruit. Whenever the man picked up the fruits, he distributed some of them to the poor.

The poor would gather around his garden when he was to pluck the fruits, and the man would never disappoint them. This way, he made Allah happy, and every season, he would get plenty of fruits in his garden.

The pious man died, sons took over

The man had sons, unfortunately, they were not pious and were not kind to the poor. When their father died, they sat together and discussed that they should keep all the share of the garden with them and shall not distribute it among the poor.

They talked about how difficult it was to earn money and how foolishly their father would distribute it among the poor. Yet, they knew that on every harvest, the poor would gather around the garden. If they did not give them the fruit, it would hurt their status in society.

They were worried about their prestige but not about Allah’s anger. Planning to stop providing food for the poor is unacceptable. Allah had been blessing them with plenty of fruit just because a small share was being given to the poor.

They didn’t say Insha Allah

So, they planned to wake up early in the morning and pluck up all the fruit. This way, they would have all the share with them. They planned to do so in the morning and then went to sleep.

Yet they did not say “Insha-Allah”. They should have said that Insha-Allah, we would wake up in the morning and pluck the fruits.

The fire erupted in the garden

This made Allah angry with them. They showed no faith in Allah Almighty. Allah says in verse 19 of Surah Qalam that they went to sleep with the hope that they would pluck the ripe fruit early in the morning. Yet, by the will of Allah, a fire struck in their garden, burning all their fruit while they were sound asleep.

Unaware that their garden had been burnt down, they woke up in the morning calling each other to get ready for harvesting. They went towards their garden happily, saying that no poor person would have a share today. Yet when they reached there, they saw a black pitch.

They got the punishment

They first said that they had come the wrong way and that it was not their garden. Soon, when reality struck them, they found out that their garden had been burnt to black. All the ripe fruits were gone. They planned not to give to the poor, so Allah planned not to give them.

Yet the pious among them who had been warning them for their actions said didn’t I tell you that Allah is great? Allah had been blessing us with plenty because our father was a generous one.

This made all of them repent of their actions, and they turned toward their Lord, seeking forgiveness. They then said that may Allah give them a better garden then this so that they could help the poor even more.
