The blessed olive tree is a beautiful symbol for our islamic holiday. The olive tree has been mentioned in the quran many times.One beautiful interpretation of the meaning is as follows. Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth. The example of his light is like a niche within which is a lamp, the lamp is within glass, the glass as if it were a pearly (white) star lit from (the oil of) a blessed olive tree, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow even if untouched by fire. Allah guides to his light whom he wills. And allah presents examples for the people, and allah is knowing of all things. We have created this beautiful lit 5.5 foot olive tree to add a festive glow to your home during the holidays. Its 5 main branches are symbolic of the 5 pillars of islam. Adorn with small lanterns or moons and stars of your choosing. The rest of the creativity lies in your hands.
