The great reward for farming

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is the following from the Hadith?:

The farmer is rewarded for whatever he produces whether directly by his actions or not, so much so that even when birds, ants and other insects eat from the produce, he is rewarded


This seems to be derived from the following hadith:

Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

Any Muslim who plants a tree or vegetation will be rewarded for every bird, human or animal that eats from that plantation

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2320 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 3945-3951)

One narration in Sahih Muslim states that he will be rewarded even after his death, for all who eat from his plantation till the day of Judgement.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
