It is said in Noble Qur'an:
The parable of those who spend their substance in the way of Allah is that of a grain of corn: it groweth seven ears, and each ear Hath a hundred grains.
But I have come to know that a corn plant usually only has 1 or 2 corn ears and the grain is many in number from 600-800 depending on the size.
Is this not a false statement in the Qur'an? I have read Tafsir Ibn Kathir and Jalalayn, but they only explain it to mean how Allah swt multiplies reward for good deeds by 700. But is this not a scientific contradiction about the actual corn plant and its numbers?
