4.Bringing Forth Fire from a Dry Tree (Producing a Thing from Its Opposite)

 

Allah Almighty said,

 

{He, Who produces for you fire out of the green tree, when behold! You kindle therewith.}

[Ya-Sin 36: 80]

 

The nature of a tree is moist and cold, and the nature of fire is dry and hot. So, just as Allah (Mighty & Majestic) brings forth hot, dry fire from its opposite: a cold, wet, green tree, He (Noble & Sublime) is Able to bring forth life from death. He is Able to bring a person back from the dead, once again, for judgment and reward or punishment.

     In ancient times, if a person wanted to start a fire and he had no flint, he would take two green sticks from the markh and `affaar trees that grow in the Hijaz [the eastern Arabian Peninsula]. He would rub one against the other and a fire would spark between them.
