    We sent down water from the sky in right measure, and

    caused it to stay in the earth.

    And He it is Who has subjected the sea for you.

    2}{We sent down water from the sky in right measure, and caused it to stay

    in the earth, and We have the power to cause it to vanish (in the manner

    We please).

    }2}8 He Who sent down water from the sky in a determined measure, and

    thereby revived a dead land: likewise will you be raised up (from the earth).

    1}{ And He it is Who has subjected the sea that you may eat fresh fish from

    it and bring forth ornaments from it that you can wear. And you see

    ships ploughing their course through it so that you may go forth seeking

    His Bounty and be grateful to Him. }3{

    He unleashed the two seas so that they merge together,and yet

    there is a barrier between them which they may not overstep.

    It is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth, Who sent down water

    from the heaven and thereby brought forth a variety of fruits as your

    sustenance, Who subjected for you the ships that they may sail in the

    sea by His command, Who subjected for you the rivers,Who subjected

    for you the sun and the moon and both of them are constant on their

    courses, Who subjected for you the night and the day,and Who gave you

    all that you asked Him for. Were you to count the favours of Allah you

    shall never be able to encompass them. Verily man is highly unjust,

    exceedingly ungrateful.

    }32{ Allah it is Who has subjected the sea to you so that ships may sail upon it

    by His command and you may seek of His Bounty and give thanks to Him.

    He has subjected to you all that is in the heavens and the earth, all being

    from Him. Verily there are Signs in this for those who reflect.

    }{

    He unleashed the two seas so that they merge together,and yet there is

    a barrier between them which they may not overstep. Which of the

    wonders of your Lord will you both you men and jinn then deny?

    From these seas come forth pearls and coral.Which of the wonders of

    your Lord's power will you twain you men and jinn then deny?His

    deep dark ocean darkness upon darkness

    are the ships, towering on the sea like mountains.Which of the favours

    of your Lord will you twain you men and jinn then deny?

    }}2 And it is He, Who has let loose the two seas, one palatable and

    sweet, the other bitter and saltish, and there is a partition between

    them, which is an insurmountable barrier.

    }3{ The two masses of water are not alike. The one is sweet, sates thirst,

    and is pleasant to drink from, while the other is salt, bitter on the

    tongue. Yet from both you eat fresh meat, and extract from itornaments that you wear; and you see ships cruising through it that

    you may seek of His Bounty and be thankful to Him.

    Who is it Who guides you through the darkness on land and sea?

    The deeds of those who disbelieved, maybe likened to a mirage in a

    waterless desert, which the thirsty one took for water; but when he

    reached there he found nothing to drink; nay, he found there Allah

    Who settled his full account, and Allah is very swift at reckoning.Or

    (their efforts may be likened to those of a man trying to swim in) a

    deep dark ocean, covered with billows, one over the other, and

    above it a cloud: darkness upon darkness: so much so that if he

    stretches out his hand, he cannot see it. There is no light for the one

    whom Allah does not give light.

    }2{ Who is it Who guides you through the darkness on land and sea?And Who sends winds as heralds of good tidings ahead of His

    Mercy? Is there any god associated with Allah (in this task)?

    Exalted be Allah above whatever they associate with Him in His

    Divinity!

    }{It is He Who has made for you the stars that you may follow

    the right direction in the darkness of the land and the sea.

    We have indeed spelled out signs for the people who have

    knowledge.

    Voyages in the sea and lessons of Monotheism

    Ask them: 'Who is it that saves you from dangers in the deep

    darknesses of the land and the sea?

    }2{ Ask them: 'Who is it that saves you from dangers in the deep

    darknesses of the land and the sea, and to whom do you call in

    humility and in the secrecy of your hearts? To whom do you pray: "If

    He will but save us from this distress, we shall most certainly be

    among the thankful? "Say: "It is Allah alone Who saves you from this

    and from every distress, and yet you associate others with Allah in

    His divinity."Say: "It is He Who has the power to send forthchastisement upon you from above you, or from beneath your feet,

    or split you into hostile groups and make some of you taste each

    others' violence. Behold, how We set forth Our signs in diverse

    forms, so that maybe they will understand the Truth."

    Do you not see that ships sail in the sea by Allah's Grace that He may

    show you some of His Signs? Surely there are Signs in this for

    everyone who is steadfast, thankful. When waves engulf them (in

    the sea) like canopies, they call upon Allah, consecrating their faith

    solely to Him. But when He brings them safely to the land, some of

    them become lukewarm. None denies Our Signs except the

    perfidious, the ungrateful.

    }4}32

    He it is Who enables you to journey through the land and the sea.

    And so it happens that when you have boarded the ships and they

    set sail with a favourable wind, and the passengers rejoice at the

    pleasant voyage, then suddenly a fierce gale appears, and wave

    upon wave surges upon them from every side, and people believe

    that they are surrounded from all directions, and all of them cry out

    to Allah in full sincerity of faith: 'If You save us from this we will

    surely be thankful.But no sooner than He rescues them than they go

    about committing excesses on the earth, acting unjustly. Men ! The

    excesses you commit will be of harm only to yourselves, (Enjoy, if

    you will) the fleeting pleasure of this world; in the end you shall all

    return to Us, and then We shall tell you what you did.

    Your Lord is He Who steers your vessels across the seas that you

    may seek of His Bounty. He is ever Merciful towards you.When a

    calamity befalls you on the sea, all those whom you invoke forsake

    you except Him. But when He brings you safely to the shore you turn

    away from Him, for man is indeed most thankless.Do you, then, feelsecure against His causing you to be swallowed up by a tract of the

    earth, or letting loose a deadly whirlwind charged with stones

    towards you, and there you will find none to protect you?Or do you

    feel secure that He will not cause you to revert to the sea, and let a

    tempest loose upon you and then drown you for your ingratitude

    whereupon you will find none even to inquire of Us what happened

    to you? Indeed, We honoured the progeny of Adam, and providedthem with rides on land and sea and provided them with good

    things for their sustenance, and exalted them above many of Our

    creatures.
