Adélie penguins is a species of penguin living along the Antarctic coast in little islands. They spend the winter time in seas enclosing the Antarctic ice.
Adélie penguins feed mainly on krill, fish and calamari. In order to find their prey they can dive into 175 meters depth but generally they feed on more shallow waters half of this depth.
They are talented swimmers like other penguin species. Only to find their lunch, they can easily cover approximately 300 kilometers.
At the start of the spring which is the breeding period, they settle on the rocky coasts of Antarctica in crowds. While on land they build their nests and specify their respective zones with little rocks. Although they have the typical waddling penguin walk, they can walk long distances. During the first weeks of the spring when ice are still intact, they need to walk for 50 kilometers to reach open seas. It is almost impossible to distinguish the male of this penguin species from its female. Once the female lays its eggs (it has a pair of eggs) the female and male penguins take turns incubating their eggs. If there are any trouble with food, only one of the two chicks can survive. Three weeks later parents leave the chicks alone but chicks still remain in groups for their security. The young Adélie penguins start to swim alone within 9 weeks.
Allah inspires male and female penguins to protect their eggs in solidarity and cooperation under the most severe conditions. It is Allah, the Lord of everything on earth, in the heavens and everything inbetween, Who creates every living being from nothingness, supervises them and orders them to act in a specific manner. Allah relates this fact in the Qur’an as follows:
I have put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord. There is no creature He does not hold by the forelock. My Lord is on a Straight Path. (Surah Hud, 56)
