"If the ocean were ink (wherewith to write out) the words of my Lord, sooner would the ocean be exhausted than would the words of my Lord, even if we added another ocean like it, for its aid."
(Al-Kahf, Chapter 18, Verse 109)
Oceans Allah has created vast oceans and these oceans provides different kinds of sea foods as well as water is used for navigations in spite of having two oceans one of sweet water and one of salt water they do not mix with each other. That is the real miracle of Allah. The vast ships sail on the bed of oceans and are a important means of transport for carrying goods and people.
(And it is He Who has let free the two seas (kinds of water): this is palatable and sweet, and that is salty and bitter; and He has set a barrier and a complete partition between them.) (25:53)
(Or [the state of a disbeliever] is like the darkness in a vast deep sea, overwhelmed with waves topped by waves, topped by dark clouds, (layers of) darkness upon darkness: if a man stretches out his hand, he can hardly see it! And he for whom Allah has not appointed light for him there is no light.) (24:40)
And if all the trees on earth were pens and the ocean (were ink), with seven oceans behind it to add to its (supply), yet would not the words of Allah be exhausted (in the writing): for Allah is Exalted in Power, and full of Wisdom
(Surah Luqman, Chapter 31, Verse 27)
And among His Signs are the ships, smooth-running through the ocean, (tall) as mountains.
(Ash-Shura, Chapter 42, Verse 32
