Ziraat is an inter-faced message. The outer fabric weaves a too brief outline with harvesting the fruits of the earth. The interfacing is the cultivating of the soul by individual workers under Allah's all-seeing eye. Ziraat enables the initiate to comprehend the qualities of the soul in every aspect of nature.

By attunement of the breath while walking on Mother Earth and setting our sights on Father Sky we ground our beings to the planet. Through knowledge of the hydrologic cycle, seasons, and solstices, we learn how the veins of Nature circulate from earth's core through the vegetable kingdom. This exchange forever makes humankind dependent upon the exhalation of oxygen from foliage and the inhalation of carbon dioxide gas from our exhaled breath into the vegetable kingdom.
