وَٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِيۤ أَرْسَلَ ٱلرِّيَاحَ فَتُثِيرُ سَحَاباً فَسُقْنَاهُ إِلَىٰ بَلَدٍ مَّيِّتٍ فَأَحْيَيْنَا بِهِ ٱلأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا كَذَلِكَ ٱلنُّشُورُ
-Fâtir ( فاطر )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And it is God Who unleashes the winds (al-riyāha: a variant reading has al-rīha) and they raise clouds (fa-tuthīru’l-sahāba: the imperfect tense here is used to narrate the past), that is, they stir them up, then We drive them (there is a shift here from the third person [to the first person] address) to a dead land (read mayyitin or maytin), wherein is no plant life, and therewith revive the earth, of that land, after it has been dead, [after] its having been dried-out. In other words, We made seeds and grass grow in it: Such will be the Raising, that is, the Resurrection and the bringing [of the dead] back to life.
