[Quranic Reflection]: Jonah -peace be upon him- and the whale

[Quranic Reflection]: Jonah -peace be upon him- and the whale
The Quran mentioned the story of Jonah -peace be upon him- in which he got swallowed by a whale; but survived death.

Mentioning the verses that contained the story:


Quote:Sura 37, The Quran:

Dr. Ghali

(139) And surely Yunus (Jonah) is indeed one of the Emissaries,
(140) As he deserted to the laden ship
(141) Then he cast lots. Yet he was of the rebutted,
(142) So the whale gobbled him, and he was blameworthy.
(143) So had he not been of the extollers (of Allah),
(144) He would indeed have lingered in its belly until the Day they will be made to rise again.

Mufti Taqi Usmani

(145) Then We cast him ashore in the open while he was ill,


To validate the story in terms of "possibility"; it is very possible scientifically:

Quote:While most whales aren’t able to swallow people there is however one species of whale that may be able swallow a human under the right circumstances.

This whale is known as the sperm whale.


Then it is a possibility.

No. The purpose of these topics is "showing the reader that the Quran is not a book of riddles".
In other words; it is a very clear book containing facts. Read it and observe the universe and observe your life experience.

If I ran a herd of pigs around the Kaaba would you think it was okay?

Well, then. Slap my ass and call me a Muslim. Praise Allah, I’m convinced!

Let me get this straight:
Jonah swallowing sperm=abomination
Sperm swallowing Jonah=exercise in humility

does that about sum it up?
