In all the world there is nothing more difficult than enduring the ridiculous. Suppose for instance that you have studied a certain book, corrected, amended, and fully recited it. Then someone sitting beside you reads the book all wrong. Can you endure that? No, it is impossible. However, if you never read the book, it makes no difference to you whether anyone reads it wrong or right—you cannot tell the difference. So, enduring the ridiculous is a great discipline.

Although it is the roots of a tree that drink, you can see the results of that drinking through its branches, leaves and fruit. The tree that does not drink withers—how can this stay concealed?

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb

There are uncountable known and unknown benefits of living near/around trees.

They are the big source of natural beauty, nutrition, oxygen and health for us. You can have tree as your spirit guide, guru and master. According to al-Quran.info/55/6 they do not exoterically prostrate that we can normally see, they have soul/jan in them who esoterically worships Allah.

They are so much intelligent, knowledgeable and wise sunnah.com/bukhari/63/85

Either you can have a jinn spirit living/dwelling on the tree as your spirit guide/guru or that tree itself.

♦ Excerpts:

Plant Familiars: plant familiars are spirits of plants that aid a person in spiritual or mundane practices and growth. In centuries past, our ancestors who worked with plant familiars were called cunning folk, shamans, healers, witch doctors, witches, and more. They worked with the energy of these plants in order to heal and bless their friends and even curse their enemies.

Plant Spirit Guides : Just as there are animal spirit guides that will come in and out of your life, there are also plant spirit guides that will do the same. These spirit guides will show up in your life to bring you a specific message depending on what you are going through in life. For an animal example: the ant might come into your life to remind you to learn how to work in a team for a specific cause. Plants will do the same as animal spirit guides, they will come to you to give you an important message from Spirit/God/Universe.

Why en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tree attracts en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jinn ?

Because of their (i.e. jinn's) type of en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_(P which created from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_d and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxygen

That is why some trees are called haunted [ e.g. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azadirac - the Neem Tree is of great importance for its en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-des properties and a good en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_d ]

Wa Khalqnal Jaanna Min (m) Maarij (m) Min Naar — [Quran 55:15]
"And We created Jan/Jaan (i.e. life, soul, entity) from Maarij and from Naar and from whatever is released from Maarij and Naar"

When will you free yourself from cowardice?
Since you have such a short time to live here,
What difference does it make? What should you fear?
