Allah in the name of The Most Affectionate, the Merciful. Surah Ar-Rahman
"So O men and jinns! Which favour of your Lord will you deny?
In the Gardens are two springs, overflowing with abundance.
So O men and jinns! Which favour of your Lord will you deny?
In them are fruits (of all kinds), and dates and pomegranate.
So O men and jinns! Which favour of your Lord will you deny? " Quraan Sharif (verse 65-69) Kanzul Imaan
? And it is He Who sends down water from the sky; so with it We produced all things that grow; hence We produce from it vegetation from which We bring forth grains in clusters; and from the pollen of dates, dense bunches - and gardens of grapes and olives and pomegranates, similar in some ways and unlike in some; look at its fruit when it bears yield, and its ripening; indeed in it are signs for the people who believe"
?It is He Who produces gardens spread on the ground and above, and the date-palm, and crops of various flavours, and the olive and the pomegranate, similar in some respects and unlike in others; eat from its fruit when it bears yield, and pay the due (obligatory charity) from it on the day it is harvested; and do not be wasteful; indeed the wasteful are not liked by Allah.?
