Photographer's Note

Isparta' ya giderken Eğridir gölüne varmadan Senirkent çıkışında yol boyu uzanan elma bahçelerinde ağaçların dalları kıpkırmızı elmaların ağırlığından alın yeyin der gibi yerlere eğilmiş bize takdim ediyorlardı san ki.Biz de yemeden önce bir kaç kare alalım dedik.

"Bir elmayı yiyen ve "Elhamdülillâh" diyen adam, o şükürle ilân eder ki: "O elma doğrudan doğruya dest-i kudretin yadigârı ve doğrudan doğruya hazine-i rahmetin hediyesidir" (Mektubat Şükür Risalesi)
While we go to Isparta before reaching Eğridir Lake, Senirkent output, We saw the apple orchards, where branches of the trees bent as if to say Eat red apples Get the weight of that sec along the way were presented to us. We said, Let's take a few shots before eating

Furthermore, within thanks is a pure belief, a sincere affirmation of God's Unity. For a person who eats an apple and utters, "Praise be to God!" is proclaiming through his thanks: "This apple is a souvenir bestowed directly by the hand of power, a gift directly from the treasury of mercy."

With saying this and believing it, he is surrendering everything, particular and universal, to the hand of power. He recognizes the manifestation of mercy in everything. He announces through thanks a true belief and sincere affirmation of Divine Unity.

Of the many aspects of the great loss which heedless man incurs through ingratitude for bounties, we shall describe only one. It is as follows:

If someone eats a delicious bounty and gives thanks, the bounty becomes a light through his thanks and a fruit of Paradise in the hereafter. Through thinking of it being a work of Almighty God's favour and mercy due to the pleasure it affords, it gives a true, lasting delight and enjoyment. He sends kernels and essences pertaining to its meaning, and immaterial substances like these, to the abodes above, while the material husk-like residue, that is, the matter that has completed its duty and now is unnecessary, becomes excreta and goes to be transformed into its original substances, that is, into the elements. If he does not give thanks, the temporary pleasure leaves a pain and sorrow at its passing, and itself becomes waste. Bounty which is of the nature of diamonds is transformed into coal. Through thanks, transient sustenance produces enduring pleasures, everlasting fruits. But bounty which is met with ingratitude is turned from the very best of forms into the most distasteful. For according to a heedless person such as that, after a temporary pleasure, the end of sustenance is waste-matter."
