37. THE RANKS ( al Swaaf faat )
With the name of Allah, the Magnanimous, the Merciful.
139. And surely Yunus was from the messengers,
140. when he rushed to the packed ark,
141. so he bet,
so he was from the castaways;
142. so the whale swallowed him,
and he was condemned;
143. so if it was not that he was from the glorifiers,
144. he would linger in its belly to the Day of resurrection;
145. so We flung him with the wilderness,
and he was heartbroken,
146. and we grew a tree from a gourd upon him,
147. and We sent him to a hundred thousand, or an increase,
148. so they believed;
- so We let them enjoy for a while.

I have been studying and translating the Qu'ran for more than ten years,
full time, while living on my frugal savings.
If you are able to help me with a grant, scholarship, bursary, stipend,
teaching position, or lectureship, I would highly appreciate it.
Besides preparing the final formatting of the Qu'ran for publication,
and the Quranic Arabic Made Easy arabic-english / english-arabic dictionary,
I will be posting weekly extracts from the Qu'ran
on google+, linkedin, facebook and twitter.
I can be contacted at: email@example.com
Please do not use google translate,
or any other online translation
as they are highly inaccurate.
Do not follow your own whims,
or what others tell you,
as they might be in contradiction to what is actually in the Qur'aan.
The only way to know what the Qur'aan actually reveals
is to read the Qur'aan in a language you understand.
Also, please consider the verses published here,
in the context of the ENTIRE Qur'aan
and in relation to ALL the other verses in the Qur'aan.
