The name of our mosque inspired by Surah 95 : At Tin " The fig-tree "
In name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful !
1. by the fig and the olive !
2. and by Mount Sina !
3. and by this secure city !
4. we have certainly created man in the best of stature.
5. Then, we return him to the lowest of the low,
6. Except for those who believe and do righteous deeds for, they will have uninterrupted reward.
7. So, what yet causes you to deny the recompense ?
8. is not Allah the most just of Judges ?
History and explanation of Surah 95: At Tin
"In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful".
The theme in this Surah, indeed, pivots on the subject of the creation of Man; the best of stature, and the processes of his development and his lowliness. The subject begins with some comprehensive oaths at the beginning of the Surah, and then, after enumerating some of the sources of Man's victory and salvation, it concludes with the emphasis on Resurrection and the absolute Sovereignty of Allah.
The holy Prophet (S) is narrated to have said: "Allah will endow, in this world, the two qualities of safety and certainty to the person who recites it (Surah Tin). And when he dies, He will give him rewards equal to the reward of fasting one day (multiplied) by the number of all those who have recited this Surah."
This Surah has been revealed in Mecca. The evidence is the verse, itself: "And this city of security (Mecca)", containing the demonstrative adjective 'this' which refers to something near.
"We Have Created Man In the best of stature". There are four meaningful oaths at the beginning of this Surah to be as an introduction to an important statement.
It says: "By the Fig and the Olive," "And (Mount) Tur of Sinin," "And this city of security (Mecca)." The term /tin/ means 'fig', and the term /zaytun/ means 'olive'; the same fruit that is the source of a useful oil.
These two oaths coordinate with the third and fourth oaths that refer to the other sacred lands.
The purpose of using the term /tur-i-sinin/ as rendered by some commentators, seems to be /tur-i-sina/ (the Mount of Sina) where olive trees, full of fruit, are found.
Sina is interpreted as a Mount full of bounties, or full of trees, or beautiful; it is the same Mount that Moses used to visit to perform his supplications.
It is certain that 'the city of security' refers to Mecca, a land which was known as a secure region even in pagan times. Its sacred character was always respected, and no fighting was allowed in its territory even against criminals and murderers; so, when they reached there they were in complete security.
But, if the same 'man', with all his privileges, deviates from the path of truth he will fall so deep as unto 'the lowest of the low' and will be abased to the lowest possible position.
Hence, in the next verse, it says: "Then We render him the lowest of the low."
'the lowest of the low'. Save those who believe and do righteous deeds, for them is a reward unending."
"What then makes you reject thereafter the Last Judgment?"
The structure of your body, on the one hand and the structure of the endless universe, on the other, all indicate that the fleeting life of this world cannot be the final goal of the creation or of this splendid, vast universe.
All of them are preliminary to a wider and more complete world; and as the Holy Qur'an points out 'the first form of creation' warns you of that: "And you certainly know already the first form of creation: Why then do you not celebrate His praises?"
Every year, plants, in nature, and before our very eyes become renewed and remind us of the scene of death and rebirth, again and again. Each of the uninterrupted stages during the developing period of a foetus is counted as a new resurrection and a new life, and yet, how is it that Man can deny the Reckoning Day?
Considering what was stated in the above, it is clear that the addressee, in this verse, is Man, collectively. The possibility that the addressee is the Messenger of Islam (S) with the meaning of 'having the evidences of the Resurrection, who or what if able to deny you' seems improbable.
And, also, it becomes clear that the objective meaning of the word /din/, here is not 'religion'; it means 'the Day of Reckoning'. The following verse also attests to this idea.
"Is not Allah the Most Just of judges?"
So, if we take the word /din/ with the whole meaning of 'religion', this verse means: 'Are Allah's laws and decrees not wisest of all?, or 'Allah's creation of Man is full of knowledge and wisdom in all respects.'
But, as it was said before, the, first meaning seems more fitting.
According to a tradition from the holy Prophet (S), whenever he recited Surah Tin and after reciting the verse: "Is not Allah the Most Just of judges'!"
He used to say: "Yes, and I am the witness to this (that Allah is the Most Just of judges.")
