Various commentaries state that the owner of a garden in the province of Yemen was a God-fearing man. He used to give a certain part of the garden's crop to the poor and needy. But after his death his three sons became his owners. They thought we had a large population. The crop resources of the garden are very scarce compared to our family. So it is not possible for us to give a certain portion of the harvest to the poor; But no one boy was the opposite of this thought. He was sympathetic to the poor. But others did not listen to him.
They promised that we would go and harvest the next morning before the beggars arrived; But this oath and promise did not include the will of God. That is, they did not say that if Allah wills, [InshaAllah] we will go tomorrow morning and reap the harvest. Insha'Allah, Allah sent down wrath on their gardens while they were asleep for the crime of not saying and not wanting to give to the poor and needy. As a result, a strong storm-wind blew over the garden and completely destroyed the crops of the garden.
Seeing the garden, it seemed that it had become like a fat crop. Then early in the morning they said to each other, "If you want to reap, go to the garden early in the morning." The beggars have to pick up the crop before the crowd gathers. Then they left for the harvest in the morning, feeling very arrogant and haughty according to the previous decision. And began to talk to each other quietly - be careful! Today no group of beggars can gather around you. Harvest work must be completed before they arrive. They reached the garden with the attitude of driving away the beggars and the poor.
Observing the destruction of the garden, he said, "We may have forgotten the way and come to another garden." This is not our garden. Our garden is so beautiful, full of lush crops, we have lost our way, but seeing the boundaries and signs around the garden, they regained consciousness. They felt proud and disobedient to God. And he said: The curse of Allah has come upon us, we have been deprived of the harvest. The man among them who was virtuous in nature and sensitive to beggars said, "Did I not tell you before that you should not disobey Allah?" It is nothing but disobedience to God, the desire to deprive the beggars, and the consequences of arrogance. There is still time, repent from sin. Why aren't you still proclaiming the glory of God? As soon as they became proletarians, their state of confusion ended. They repented in their hearts and asked Allah for forgiveness and said, O our Lord! We are glorifying you. You are the superpower. You forgive us. We have crossed the line. If we do not forgive, we have no choice.
Then they started blaming each other. Eventually they blamed themselves for their misfortune and said it was because of their rebellious behavior with God. They repented to God with a sincere heart and hoped that God was great and very merciful. So we can only hope that He will forgive us and give us a good garden instead. We entrusted all our problems to Him and focused on Him. The commentators have written that as a result of their repentance and submission of all their problems to Allah and being the bearers of the true religion, Allah made them very rich by giving them many times better and lush gardens.
