The Praying Tree

Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 65, Number 355:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Umar:
While we were sitting with the Prophet a spadix of palm tree was brought to him. The Prophet said, "There is a tree among the trees which is as blessed as a Muslim" I thought that it was the date palm tree and intended to say, "It is the date-palm tree, O Allah's Apostle!" but I looked behind to see that I was the tenth and youngest of ten men present there, so I kept quiet' Then the Prophet said, "It is the datepalm tree."

Praise be to Allah, and Rasulallah (may peace be unto him), Muslim ecologists have found the tree that is as blessed as a Muslim. Wouldn't you know it, it is facing Macca and prostrating itself.
