This research delves into the intriguing mention of the fig in the Quran, considering it a remarkable fruit, possessing extraordinary Quranic uslūb (linguistic style). Scientific investigations have revealed the presence of antioxidant compounds within the fig. The primary objective of this qualitative study is to comprehensively examine the fig in the Quran, along with its Quranic uslūb, to unravel their profound significance. The method used in this qualitative study is content analysis. Data that were collected through content and document analysis were thematically analyzed using the descriptive and analytical methods. The findings highlight that the fig, uniquely mentioned in Surah Al-Tin 95:1, represents the sole instance where an antioxidant fruit is referenced in the Quran, characterized by distinctive uslūb when compared to other antioxidant fruits. The implications of this study substantiate that the fig is an exceptional miraculous antioxidant fruit, thereby providing empirical evidence for the miraculous nature of the Quran (al-i’jāz al-Qurani) through its scientifically miraculous content (al-i’jāz al-‘ilmī) and linguistic miracle (al-i’jāz al-lughawī).
