“By the fig and the olive.”

Soorah at Teen {95:1}

Al-`Awfi reported from Ibn `Abbaas that what is meant by At-Teen is the Masjid of Nooh that was built upon Mount Al-Judi. Mujaahid said, “It is this fig that you have.”

{Tafseer Ibn Katheer Eng. Version/Vol. #10}

Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyyah (rahimahullaah) said, “Allaah has sworn by the Teen in His Book because of its tremendous benefits and uses. The best type of figs (Teen) are the white kind when they are ripe as they cleanse sand that accumulates in the liver and prostate and serve as a preventive substance against poisons. Figs are more nutritious than all other types of fruit and help relieve roughness in the chest, throat and trachea. It also cleanses the liver and spleen, purified phlegm that accumulates in the stomach and provides good nourishment for the body, yet it makes one more susceptible to lice if eaten excessively.”
