ٱلَّذِي جَعَلَ لَكُم مِّنَ ٱلشَّجَرِ ٱلأَخْضَرِ نَاراً فَإِذَآ أَنتُم مِّنْه تُوقِدُونَ
-Yâ-Sîn ( يس )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

He Who has made for you, and for all human beings, fire from the green tree, namely, [from] the markh and ‘afār [variety], or [from] all trees, except for the jujube (‘unnāb), and, behold, from it you kindle’, [from it] you strike fire: this is proof of the power [of God] to resurrect, for in this [example of the green tree] He has combined [the elements of] water, fire and wood; but neither the water extinguishes the fire, nor does the fire ignite the wood.
