I am extremely fond of the Japanese art of gardening called Bonsai. Kindly inform if this is perfectly acceptable in Islam to cut and crop a huge size tree in a miniature form.
In a gathering with friends I stated that there is a hadith according which the Holy Prophet (sws) directed some farmers (probably date planters) to adopt a certain practice. They followed his direction and suffered loss.
One of my friends differed strongly with me saying that he could not believe it. He asked me to provide full reference. Would you please help me out with the complete hadith and references?
