Male and female in fruits

Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) – 13

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

   وَمِن كُلِّ ٱلثَّمَرَٰتِ جَعَلَ فِيهَا زَوْجَيْنِ ٱثْنَيْنِ يُغْشِى ٱلَّيْلَ ٱلنَّهَارَ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ  (3  b)

3b.  And of all fruits He placed therein two spouses (male and female); He covereth the night with the day. Lo! Herein verily are portents for people who take thought. 3b.  Wa  min-  kullis-samaraati  ja-‘ala  fiihaa  zaw-jay-nis-nayni  yug-shil-lay-lan-nahaar.  ‘Inna  fii  zaalika  la-‘Aayaatil-li-qaw-miny-yata-fak-karuun.  




It has been commanded in the first portion of the verse that the existence of the earth, the mountains and the rivers is a Clear Proof of the Existence of God Almighty. But if you go forth, you will observe that all such things which are useful for you; are produced also into them. Did you ever think that Who creates them? Almost, a mankind can plough in the land, sow the seed and sometimes he waters the crops only, but for more than it; he is quite helpless. It is Allah, The Most High, Who produces fruit from them, and every kind of fruit has been placed in two spouses. One member of it is male and the other is female. One is sweet but the other is citrus etc. Moreover, you should think about the system of the day and the night. The night conceals the day but the day spreads over the night. Can someone be so much foolish that he think: It all happens naturally? No! There are portents in these entire happenings, which can be understood by only such people who are accustomed of thinking and meditating also. Their consideration carries them to the consequence that “Creator of these entire things, and Who connects them with one another is only One – Allah Almighty, Who has preserved this entire series by His Omnipotence.
