Farming

Anas ibn Maalik reported that the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said

“There is not a Muslim who plants a plant, or crops a crop, and it is eaten by a bird, human, or animal, except that they will earn a reward.”

An-Nawawi said: “These narrations show the virtue of farming and cropping, and that the reward for such a person is continuous until the Day of Resurrection, as long as the plant and crops remain, and the offspring of those plants  and crops are also counted.”

Anas ibn Maalik reported that Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said

“If the Hour begins [The Day of Resurrection], and one of you has a small date-palm tree in their hand, then let him plant it if he could.”

Manufacturing: 

Al-Miqdaam (a Companion) narrated that Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said

“There is no food that a person eats better than that which his own hand earned; and Allah’s Prophet David used to eat from the work of his own hand.”

Ibn Hajar said: “The wisdom behind mentioning Prophet David is that he did not need to eat only the work of his two hands, for he was a King on earth, as Allah said. Rather, he chose to eat from the best possible means, and that is why the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, mentioned his story, in order to prove his point, that the best of earnings are those that come from the work of one’s own hands.”

Business: 

Allah said (what means)

«O you who have believed, do not consume one another’s wealth unjustly but only [in lawful] business by mutual consent.»

[Quran: 4:29]

Ibn `Abbaas said

“`Ukaath, Majannah, and Thu Al-Majaaz were markets during the pre-Islamic times, and people felt that it was a sin to trade during the season of pilgrimage, so Allah revealed (what means): «There is no blame upon you for seeking bounty from your Lord» [Quran: 2:198] during the season of pilgrimage.”


Urwah Al-Baariqi (a Companion) said

` “A travelling market for selling camels and sheep approached, and the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, gave me a Deenaar (golden coin) and said: ‘Go to that market and purchase an ewe.’ So I went to the caravan and haggled with the owner, and bought two ewes for one Deenaar, then went to sell one of the ewes, so a man approached to buy from me, and we haggled, then agreed on the price of one Deenaar for one ewe. Then, I went to the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, with one Deenaar and one ewe, and said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, here is your Deenaar and your ewe,’ and told him the story. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘O Allah, bless his transactions.’”
