ا ث ل / Well-rooted

34:16
فَأَعْرَضُوا فَأَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ سَيْلَ الْعَرِمِ وَبَدَّلْنَاهُمْ بِجَنَّتَيْهِمْ جَنَّتَيْنِ ذَوَاتَيْ أُكُلٍ خَمْطٍ وَأَثْلٍ وَشَيْءٍ مِنْ سِدْرٍ قَلِيلٍ
 
Here it refers to something bad, i.e. fruits which makes one static. Well rootedness here shows a lack of dynamism. Only used once. The ‘athl’ root should be contrasted with ‘aSl’ because that’s a good kind of rooting.
