Tree and Islam

In the Islamic paradise grow two trees: a tree that has as many leaves as there are people, and a tree which gives shelter to people who are deceased. When the leaves fall from the first tree, the angel of death Israfil picks them up and get the people on earth who should die, because each leaf is the name of a man.
In the Qur'an (the holy book of Muslims) is written that a new paradise with leafy trees and delicious fruits for those who have led a pious life.
The Koran is more often seen on trees. In special role plays in the date palm. The messenger of Allah said about this tree: "O Aisa, in a house where no dates are found, the people are starving .... 'And' who every morning, eats seven dates, during the day is immune to poison or witchcraft."
In the Qur'an, the date palm as one of the gifts of Allah:
"This man would have seen his food. Look, we shed the water in abundance. We then splits the earth in a miraculous way and let corn, grapes, oil trees, palms and gardens densely planted with fruit and forage grass and care for you and your cattle grow. "
The date palm is the tree that the Arabs have long known. It is the tree, including Mary - in the words of Allah - Jesus bore:
"And the pangs of birth drove her unto the trunk of a date palm. She cried, Oh, but I was already dead and totally forgot! Then Jesus cried out:

Do not be sad because the Lord has a stream flow. Shake the trunk of the palm toward you, then fresh, ripe dates will fall down. Eat, drink and have a good time! "
The date palm is the blessed tree in the Koran called 20 places. The Prophet Muhammad said: "The Adschaw (date palm) comes from paradise and cures poisoning."
The main areas of date palm cultivation are in Islamic countries: Saudi - Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Sudan, Tunisia, Algeria and Syria. Allah also said: "On earth are lined up areas and gardens with vines, wheat fields and date palms on either single or double stems from a growing root. They are all watered with the same water, yet we let the one bear more fruit than others. .... 'Hawser ripe dates
"It is He who sends rain from the sky which we grow all kinds of plants: corn, date palms with their drooping bunches of fruit, berries, olives and pomegranates ...."
The messenger of Allah said: "
"Under the trees there is a tree whose leaves do not fall as similar to the Muslim. Which tree are you? "
After a while the shy Abdullah replied: "
"I think it is a date palm, but I am ashamed to say it."
The people asked:
"Is it true? Tell us, Allah's messenger, to which tree are you? "
He replied:
"Abdullah is right, it is the date palm."

In the Islamic world do not speak about sacred trees but blessed. One is a mulberry tree with large branches at the mausoleum of the Sufi mystic Bakhautdin Naqshband (1318-1389) outside the capital of Uzbekistan Bukhara. For a source in the neighborhood pilgrims rub healing water over their eyes and they hang strips of cotton in the tree. These are offerings to hearing of their prayers. Women who wish to become pregnant three times crawling under a tree stump from which the mausoleum stands. This tree was planted by Naqshband himself. Bakhautdin Naqshband
According to one legend, saw the father of Mohammed in a dream before his birth, a tree behind his son grow. It grew up into the sky to the overwhelming light reached its peak. Most Muslims take this legend as a symbol for the light of Islam, by Muhammad spread on earth.
Importantly, the olive tree, which said the following:
"He showed me the river of the water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and the Lamb. In the middle of the road and across the river grew the tree of life that every month twelve baskets full bore fruit. The leaves of this tree were of healing of the people. "
