It is determined that over two million saplings will be planted during the upcoming spring season in Kabul, the capital. The drive was kicked off the other day by planting hundreds of saplings with the presence of officials of agriculture, irrigation and livestock in Badam Bagh area of Kabul, the capital.

Officials of the ministry of agriculture, irrigation and livestock have asked the people to participate in the national drive announced for planting of saplings in the country. According to the ministry, each citizen should plant two saplings: one for himself and one for Afghanistan. On the threshold of arriving of the spring season, each Afghan citizen should take part in the planting process of saplings as it is also the responsibility of each countryman. The more we plant saplings, the more we will have a beautiful, green, and clean Afghanistan. Trees are the national investment of the country.

Meanwhile, Kabul Municipality in a ceremony announced the start of a sapling plantation drive by planting tree saplings in Wazir Mohammad Akbar Khan hill of Kabul city. Greenery Department director at the Kabul Municipality, Mawlavi Abdul Wakil Mutawakil, said they planted 200,000 saplings during the first year of the rule of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA). “The municipality plans to plant two million tree saplings in the city and 600,000 saplings are ready for plantation,” Mutawakil added, describing the step as ‘unprecedented’. He added all tree saplings were produced at the municipality’s own nurseries and they were not purchased from private nurseries. It is worth mentioning that similar drives and campaigns for planting saplings have been also kicked in various provinces of the country. In Islam, planting a tree can be a very virtuous act. Planting a tree is an act of Sadaqah Jariyah. Acts of Sadaqah Jariyah can include: Planting trees – food-bearing crops can sustain communities and families for months and years, so it has an ongoing benefit. The Islamic tradition is rich in references to our responsibility as Muslims to act as stewards of the environment. The Quran also has numerous passages that describe the lush gardens and trees in heaven, highlighting their value not only in this world but also their significance in the hereafter. Nisar
