FRUITS OF THE EARTH are described in the Qur’an as evidence of God’s love and care for his creatures.
Surah vi 142:-
“He it is who produceth gardens of the vine trellised and untrellised, and the palm trees, and the corn of various food, and olives, and pomegranates like and unlike. Eat of their fruit when they bear fruit and pay the due thereof on the day of it ingathering and be not prodigal, for God loveth not the prodigal.”
Surah xiii 3: –
“And He it is who hath outstretched the earth and placed on it the firm mountains and rivers; and of every fruit He hath placed on it two kinds. He causeth the night to enshroud the day. Verily in this are signs for those who reflect.
And on the earth hard by each other are its various portions; gardens of grapes and corn, and palm trees single or clustered. Though watered by the same water, yet some make we more excellent as food than other. Verily in all this are signs for those who understand.”
