وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَنزَلَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً فَأَخۡرَجۡنَا بِهِۦ نَبَاتَ كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ فَأَخۡرَجۡنَا مِنۡهُ خَضِرًا نُّخۡرِجُ مِنۡهُ حَبًّا مُّتَرَاكِبًا وَمِنَ ٱلنَّخۡلِ مِن طَلۡعِهَا قِنۡوَانٌ دَانِيَةٌ وَجَنَّٰتٍ مِّنۡ أَعۡنَابٍ وَٱلزَّيۡتُونَ وَٱلرُّمَّانَ مُشۡتَبِهًا وَغَيۡرَ مُتَشَٰبِهٍ ۗ ٱنظُرُوٓاْ إِلَىٰ ثَمَرِهِۦٓ إِذَآ أَثۡمَرَ وَيَنۡعِهِۦٓ ۚ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكُمۡ لَءَايَٰتٍ لِّقَوۡمٍ يُؤۡمِنُونَ
It is He Who sendeth down rain from the skies: with it We produce vegetation of all kinds: from some We produce green (crops), out of which We produce grain, heaped up (at harvest); out of the date-palm and its sheaths (or spathes) (come) clusters of dates hanging low and near: and (then there are) gardens of grapes, and olives, and pomegranates, each similar (in kind) yet different (in variety): when they begin to bear fruit, feast your eyes with the fruit and the ripeness thereof. Behold! in these things there are signs for people who believe.<br/>
And He it is Who sent down water from the sky and therewith, with the water, We bring forth (there is a shift away from the third [to the second person in this address]) plants of every kind, that produces shoots, and therefrom, from the shoots, We bring forth, some, verdure, meaning 'the greens' [in other words, vegetation], bringing forth from it, from the verdure, thick-clustered grain, in dense clusters - such as the spikes of wheat and the like - and from the palm-tree (wa-mina'l-nakhli is the predicate, and is substituted by [the following, min tal'ihaa, 'from its pollen']) from its pollen - that which is the first to be produced by it - spring bunches of dates (qinwaanun is the subject of the sentence), stalks with date clusters, bunched up, one near the other, and, We bring forth from it, the Paradises, orchards, of grapes, and olives, and pomegranates, the leaves of both [of these] being, similar (mushtabihan is a circumstantial qualifier), but the fruits of which are, not alike. Look, O you addressed, in reflection, upon their fruits (read thamarihi or thumurihi, the plural of thamara, like shajara, 'tree', [as plural of] shajar, and khashaba, '[a piece of] wood', for khashab) when they have borne fruit, when this first begins, how it looks, and, [look] upon, their ripening, after they have reached full growth, and the state to which they return. Surely, in all that are signs, proofs of His power, exalted be He, to resurrect and to do all other things, for a people who believe: it is these [people] that are specifically mentioned because they are the ones to profit from those [signs] by their believing in them, in contrast to the disbelievers.
