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]?
