* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا ٱلإِنْسَانَ مِن سُلاَلَةٍ مِّن طِينٍ }

And by God We certainly created man Adam from an extraction min sulālatin derives from the verbal expression salaltu’l-shay’a mina’l-shay’ ‘I drew one thing out of another’ meaning ‘I extracted it therefrom’ his Adam’s substance being of clay min tīnin is semantically connected to sulālatin ‘an extraction’.
