Quran Excerpts: The Ocean

“All fish of the sea are made lawful for you to eat.” [5:96]

“And He committed the sea to serve you; you eat from it tender meat and extract jewelry which you wear. And you see the ships roaming it for your commercial benefits, as you seek His bounties, that you may be appreciative.” [ 16:14]

“The two seas are not the same; one is fresh and delicious, while the other is salty and undrinkable. From each of them you eat tender meat, and extract jewelry to wear. And you see the ships sailing through them seeking His provisions, that you may be appreciative.“ [35:12]

“It is Allah Who has made for you the earth as a resting place, and the sky as a canopy, and has given you shape and made your shapes beautiful and has provided for you sustenance.” [40:64]

“And He gives you all kinds of things that you implore Him for. If you count God’s blessings, you can never encompass them.“ [14:34]

“God is the One who committed the sea in your service, so that the ships can roam it in accordance with His laws. You thus seek His provisions, that you may be appreciative.“ [45:12]
