* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِيۤ أَنزَلَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً فَأَخْرَجْنَا بِهِ نَبَاتَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ فَأَخْرَجْنَا مِنْهُ خَضِراً نُّخْرِجُ مِنْهُ حَبّاً مُّتَرَاكِباً وَمِنَ ٱلنَّخْلِ مِن طَلْعِهَا قِنْوَانٌ دَانِيَةٌ وَجَنَّٰتٍ مِّنْ أَعْنَابٍ وَٱلزَّيْتُونَ وَٱلرُّمَّانَ مُشْتَبِهاً وَغَيْرَ مُتَشَٰبِهٍ ٱنْظُرُوۤاْ إِلِىٰ ثَمَرِهِ إِذَآ أَثْمَرَ وَيَنْعِهِ إِنَّ فِي ذٰلِكُمْ لأَيَٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ }

(He it is Who sendeth down water) rain (from the sky, and therewith We bring forth) by means of the rain (buds of every kind) of grains and other things; (We bring forth) from the earth by means of the rain (the green blade) green vegetation (from, which) from this green vegetation (we bring forth the thick clustered grain) clustered in spikes of grain and in other vegetations; (and from the date-palm, from the pollen thereof, spring pendant) close by, accessible to anyone standing or sitting (bunches; and (We bring forth) Gardens of grapes, and the) trees of (olive and the pomegranate) trees, (alike) in colour, referring here to pomegranates (and unlike) in taste. (Look upon the fruit thereof, when they bear fruit, and upon its ripening. Lo! Herein) in the difference of their colour (verily are portents) signs (for a people who believe) that they are from Allah.
