Evidence of Oxygen



[It is] He who made for you from the green tree, fire, and then from it you ignite (surah yasin 80)


The is the triangle of combustion :




The triangle of combustion includes heat,AIR and fuel and in the verse of Surah Yasin,it is told that the “green” plants help in combustion.

The green trees,or green woods are not usually used to ignite,but the dry and hard wooden sticks are used for that purpose.

The green plants actually produce OXYGEN,which is needed for the ignition of Fire.

Green plants,or green trees have chlorophyll,and where there is chlorophyll,the process of photosynthesis occurs.Oxygen is produced by the process of photosynthesis,and the same OXYGEN is required for the fire to ignite.



Oxygen is the ultimate requirement for someone in respiratory distress:

Then the fish swallowed him, while he was blameworthy.

And had he not been of those who exalt Allah

He would have remained inside its belly until the Day they are resurrected.

But We threw him onto the open shore while he was ill.

And We caused to grow over him a gourd vine (surah saaffaat 142-146)


This is about Prophet Yunus a.s,who was swallowed by a fish.He was inside its belly (stomach) and He was ill,when He came out.

The environment of the stomach which is acidic,and the person who is totally inside this environment,who must have inhaled the acidic vapours,would be undergoing respiratory distress….and urgently needing Oxygen supplementation.

And We caused to grow over him a gourd vine (Saaffaat 146)


These are the gourd vine leaves.Note the level-ground level which would be easily available to a person lying on GROUND.


Note the size.The larger the surface area of a green leaf,more the photosynthesis would occur,and more OXYGEN would be produced.


That was Allah’s special favour Upon Him,the recussitation..

Had not a Grace from his Lord reached him, he would indeed have been (left in the stomach of the fish, but We forgave him), so he was cast off on the naked shore, while he was to be blamed.

But his Lord chose him and made him of the righteous(Qalam 49-50)
