Seest thou not how Allah sets forth a parable? – A goodly word like a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the heavens,- of its Lord. So Allah sets forth parables for men, in order that they may receive admonition.

It brings forth its fruit at all times, by the leave of its Lord. So Allah sets forth parables for men, in order that they may receive admonition.

And the parable of an evil Word is that of an evil tree: It is torn up by the root from the surface of the earth: it has no stability.

Allah will establish in strength those who believe, with the word that stands firm, in this world and in the Hereafter; but Allah will leave, to stray, those who do wrong: Allah doeth what He willeth.


The Motif of the Tree in the Quran: A Good Tree and an Evil Tree – Islamic Web Library


Narrated Al-Bara bin Azib:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “When a Muslim is questioned in his grave, he will testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ), and that is what is meant by Allah’s Statement:– “Allah will keep firm those who believe with a Word that stands firm in this world and in the Hereafter.” (14.27)
