“The similitude of the life of the world is only as water which We send down from the sky, then the earth's growth of that which men and cattle eat mingleth with it till, when the earth hath taken on her ornaments and is embellished, and her people deem that they are masters of her, Our commandment cometh by night or by day and We make it as reaped corn as if it had not flourished yesterday. Thus do we expound the revelations for people who reflect.” (Surat-u Yunus, 24)

And grapes and green fodder
And olive-trees and palm-trees
And garden-closes of thick foliage
And fruits and grasses: Provision for you and your cattle.” (Surat-u Abese, 27- 32)
