The whales

In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of worlds and Peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad the faithful and the honest Oh, Allah, we know nothing but what You teaches us, You are the All- Knower and the Wise, Oh Allah, teach us what is good for us, and benefit us from what You taught us, and increase our knowledge.
Show us the righteous things as righteous and help us to do them, and show us the bad things as bad and help us to keep away from them. O Allah our lord make us amongst those who listen to the word and follow the best meaning of it, and admit us, by Thy Grace, to the ranks of Thy righteous servants.
O Allah our Lord, lead us out from the depths of darkness and illusion unto the lights of erudition and knowledge and from the muddy shallows of lusts unto the heavens of Your Vicinity.

How much does the whale weigh and how does it breed?

Dear brothers, these whales, which cruise the oceans, are one of Allah’s signs that indicate His Greatness. The most remarkable thing, which caught the scientists’ attention, is the number of whales in the world, as their numbers reach at certain times more than 150 thousands whales of one kind only (the blue whale).
This whale weighs 130 Tons, and it is 35 meters long, so if we multiply its weight by the number of whales in the world, that will equal a huge number which if divided equally by the numbers of the earth’s inhabitants, the result will be four Kilograms (of whale flesh) for each person per year.
imageDear brothers, this whale breeds by delivering its babies (as it is a mammal). The baby whale is seven meters long, and it weighs two tons. The whale is able to stay under water for more than thirty minutes, and that is because of the way the whale’s body was constructed, as it enables it to store the inhaled oxygen in its muscles, blood, and tissues, plus a 10 % that is stored in its lungs.



The whale’s cruising through the seas:

Dear brothers, how does the whale cruise through the earth’s glob in seas, from north to south, from pole to pole, and back to the equator despite all the differences in temperature between all these places on earth? The answer to that question is because of the fat layer it has, which protects it from coldness as it is sometimes one meter thick, hence, when it heads towards the equator, these layers of fat are decreases by 50 % because of the warm water. As for its meal, the whale is not satisfied with less than 4 tons per meal, and it is to him like a snack so to speak.

If you look at an aquarium and the small ornamental fish in it, you will realize that the systems in those small fish and the whales’ systems are similar but in smaller size, Blessed be Allah, the Creator of whatever He wills.





The purpose of Allah’s signs in this universe:

Hence, the sea with all its animals that are more than one million species, are created just for us, Allah the Almighty says:





(And has subjected to you all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth)

[Al-Jathiyah, 13]

(He it is Who created for you all that is on earth)

[Al-Baqarah, 29]

Allah the Almighty created these signs for two purposes, firstly, an indication purpose (reminders), and secondly, a mundane purpose (articles for use), Allah the Almighty says:

(We have made it a Reminder (for the Hell-fire, in the Hereafter); and an article of use for the travellers (and all the others, in this world).)

[Al-Waqi’ah, 73]

Everything Allah the Almighty created is as a reminder and as an article to be used by mankind.

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds
