SUBANG. In addition to farming material, RZ attempted to connect one of Islamic teachings about iman with caring for livestock in last regular mentoring program held in Sukamaju Residence, Palasari Village, Subang.
In this opportunity, Nana Hidayat, farmer mentor of RZ, explained one of hadith about the connection between cleanliness and iman narrated by Abu Malik al-Ash’ari that the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu alayhi wasallam, said, “Cleanliness is half of faith and Alhamdulillah fills the scale, and SubhanaAllah and Alhamdulillah fill up what is between the heavens and the earth. Salah is a light, and charity is proof (of one’s faith) and endurance is a brightness and the Qur’an is a proof on your behalf or against you. All men go out early in the morning and sell themselves, thereby setting themselves free or destroying themselves.” (Muslim).
Nana explained that they have to understand that farming is the work done by Prophet Muhammad and previous prophets. “They also must understand that cleanliness is not only part of health but also half of Iman or faith,” Nana added.
