Surah As-Saffat 37:141-150

37:141 And then they cast lots, and he was the one who lost.

37:142 [And they cast him into the sea] whereupon the great fish swallowed him, for he had been blameworthy.

37:143 And had he not been of those who [even in the deep darkness of their distress are able to] extol God’s limitless glory.

37:144 he would indeed have remained in its belly till the Day when all shall be raised from the dead. 

37:145 But We caused him to be cast forth on a desert shore, sick [at heart] as he was. 

37:146 And caused a creeping plant to grow over him [out of the barren soil].

37:147 And [then] We sent him [once again] to [his people] a hundred thousand [souls] or more.

37:148 And [this time] they believed [in him] – and so We allowed them to enjoy their life during the time allotted to them.

37:149 And Now ask them to enlighten thee, Has thy Sustainer daughters, whereas they would have [only] sons?

37:150  Or is it that We have created the angels female, and they [who believe them to be divine] have witnessed [that act of creation]?


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
