A lot of trees are mentioned in the Quran and Hadiths. One of the trees mentioned in the Hadith is the Tree of Tuba. The Tuba Tree (طُوبَىٰ, tubā) is a tree mentioned in Islamic tradition as being present in Paradise (Jannah). It is described as a blessed and beautiful tree that provides shade and nourishment to the inhabitants of Paradise. The name “Tuba” is derived from the Arabic word for “goodness” or “blessing.”
Hadith on Tuba Tree
Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported: A man said to the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, “What is Tuba (13:29)?” The Prophet said, “It is a tree in Paradise as wide as a hundred years of travel. The clothes of the people of Paradise will come from its leaves.”Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Ibn Ḥibbān 7573
عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم أَنَّهُ قَالَ لَهُ رَجُلٌ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مَا طُوبَى قَالَ شَجَرَةٌ فِي الْجَنَّةِ مَسِيرَةُ مِئَةِ سَنَةٍ ثِيَابُ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ تَخْرُجُ مِنْ أَكْمَامِهَا

The concept of the Tuba Tree is not mentioned explicitly in the Quran but is found in various Hadiths (sayings and actions of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) that describe the blessings and delights of Paradise. These Hadiths highlight the lush and luxurious nature of Paradise, with the Tuba Tree being one of the elements that symbolize the rewards and pleasures awaiting the righteous in the afterlife.
The specific characteristics and details of the Tuba Tree are not exaggerated in the Quran and Hadiths. It is generally understood as a symbol of the abundant rewards and happiness that the believers will enjoy in Paradise.
