MANNA Arabic mann من
The giving of manna to the children of Israel is mentioned three-times in the Qur’an.
Surah ii. 54; “And we overshadowed them with the cloud, and sent down manna and the quails.
Surah xx. 82: “We caused the manna and the quails to descend upon you.”
Surah vii. 160: “We caused clouds to overshadow them, and sent down upon them the manna and the quails.”
‘Abdu ‘l-‘Aziz, in his commentary, says it was like white sugar.
