It is God Who causeth
The seed-grain
And the date-stone
To split and sprout.
He causeth the living
To issue from the dead.
And He is the One
To cause the dead
To issue from the living.
That is God: then how
Are ye deluded
Away from the truth?

He it is that cleaveth
The day-break (from the dark):
He makes the night
For rest and tranquility,
And the sun and moon
For the reckoning (of time):
Such is the judgment
And ordering of (Him),
The Exalted in Power,
The Omniscient.

It is He Who maketh
The stars (as beacons) for you,
That ye may guide yourselves,
With their help,
Through the dark spaces
Of land and sea:
We detail Our Signs
For people who know.

It is He Who hath
Produced you
From a single soul:
Then there is a resting place
And a repository:
We detail Our Signs
For people who understand.

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,
Close-compounded grain
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.

(The Holy Quran, Chapter: 6, Verses: 95,96,97,98,99)
