Botanical Terms

Most commentators agree that the term “Duhn” means olive oil when it is mentioned in the Holy Quran as well as in the hadith. Botanically, oil is all that is filtered from plants, especially seeds and fruits. Oils are organic materials that are extracted from various parts of plants and contain large amounts of energy.

Reference in the Quran or Hadith

“”And [We brought forth] a tree issuing from Mount Sinai which produces oil and food for those who eat.”” HQ [23: 20].
