By the fig and the olive, that is, the two [edible] foods or [these denote the names of] two mountains in Syria on which these two foods grow

and [by] the Mount Sinai, the mountain on which God, exalted be He, spoke to Moses (sīnīn means the one blessed or the fair one with fruitful trees),

and [by] this secure land: Mecca, as people were secure in it in the time of pagandom and [are still secure in it] in Islam.

Verily We created man (al-insān: the generic) in the best of forms, [in the best] proportioning of his shape.
 
Ayah   95:5   الأية
 
Tafseer
 
Then, in the case of certain individuals of his [species], We reduced him to the lowest of the low a metaphor for old age and weakness, at which point a believers deeds are fewer than when he was young; but he will still have his reward, as God, exalted be He, says:
 
Ayah   95:6   الأية
 
Tafseer
 
except those who believe and perform righteous deeds, for they shall have an unfailing reward, one unending in a hadīth [it is stated], When a believer reaches that stage of old age which prevents him from performing [good] deeds, then what he used to do is recorded in his favour [instead].
 
Ayah   95:7   الأية
 
Tafseer
 
So what makes you deny, O disbeliever, thereafter after the mention of man being created in the best of forms and his being reduced to the vilest of age, all of which indicates the power [of God] to resurrect the Judgement?, the Requital that will be preceded by the Resurrection and the Reckoning. In other words, what makes you disbelieve in all this? Nothing does! 755
 
Ayah   95:8   الأية
 
Tafseer
 
Is not God the fairest of all judges?, the most just of all judges. His passing judgement by means of [the process of] requital is one such example. In a hadīth [it is stated], Whoever recites [sūrat] wal-tīni, By the fig, to the end of it, let him then say, Yes Indeed! And I am of those who bear witness to this!
