Ayah

وَلَقَدۡ خَلَقۡنَا ٱلۡإِنسَٰنَ مِن سُلَٰلَةٍ مِّن طِينٍ

Translation

Man We did create from a quintessence (of clay);<br/>

Tafsir

And, by God, We certainly created man, Adam, from an extraction (min sulaalatin, 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 teenin is semantically connected to sulaalatin, 'an extraction').
