24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

وَشَجَرَةً تَخْرُجُ مِن طُورِ سَيْنَاء

And a tree that springs forth from Tur Sinai,

means the olive tree.
Tur means a mountain.

Some of the scholars said,

"It is called Tur if there are trees on it, and if it is bare it is called Jabal, not Tur."

And Allah knows best.

Mount Sinai is the same as Tur Sinin, and it is the mountain on which Allah spoke to Musa bin Imran, peace be upon him, and in the surrounding mountains there are olive trees.

تَنبُتُ بِالدُّهْنِ

that grows oil,

Some scholars think it (linguistically) means that it brings forth oil.

Others say it (linguistically) means "comes forth with oil."

Allah said,

وَصِبْغٍ

and relish,

According to Qatadah,

"meaning a condiment."

لِّلْكِلِينَ



for the eaters.

means, it contains a beneficial oil and condiment.

Abd bin Humayd recorded in his Musnad and Tafsir from Umar that the Messenger of Allah said;

ايْتَدِمُوا بِالزَّيْتِ وَادَّهِنُوا بِهِ فَإِنَّهُ يَخْرُجُ مِنْ شَجَرَةٍ مُبَارَكَة

Eat (olive) oil as a condiment and apply it as oil, for it comes from a blessed tree.

It was recorded by At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah.

Allah's saying;

وَإِنَّ لَكُمْ فِي الاْإَنْعَامِ لَعِبْرَةً نُّسقِيكُم مِّمَّا فِي بُطُونِهَا وَلَكُمْ فِيهَا مَنَافِعُ كَثِيرَةٌ وَمِنْهَا تَأْكُلُونَ
