یا مفضل
:تَأَمَّلْ خَلْقَ اَلسَّمَكِ وَ مُشَاكَلَتَهُ لِلْأَمْرِ اَلَّذِي قُدِّرَ أَنْ يَكُونَ عَلَيْه
:فَإِنَّهُ خُلِقَ غَيْرَ ذِي قَوَائِمَ لِأَنَّهُ لاَ يَحْتَاجُ إِلَى اَلْمَشْيِ إِذْ كَانَ مَسْكَنُهُ اَلْمَاءَ وَ خُلِقَ غَيْرَ ذِي رِيَةٍ لِأَنَّهُ لاَ يَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ يَتَنَفَّسَ وَ هُوَ مُنْغَمِسٌ فِي اَللُّجَّةِ – وَ جُعِلَتْ لَهُ مَكَانَ اَلْقَوَائِمِ أَجْنِحَةٌ شِدَادٌ يَضْرِبُ بِهَا فِي جَانِبَيْهِ كَمَا يَضْرِبُ اَلْمَلاَّحُ بِالْمَجَاذِيفِ مِنْ جَانِبَيِ اَلسَّفِينَةِ وَ كَسَا جِسْمَهُ قُشُوراً مِتَاناً مُتَدَاخِلَةً كَتَدَاخُلِ اَلدُّرُوعِ وَ اَلْجَوَاشِنِ لِتَقِيَهُ مِنَ اَلْآفَاتِ فَأُعِينَ بِفَضْلِ حِسٍّ فِي اَلشَّمِّ لِأَنَّ بَصَرَهُ ضَعِيفٌ وَ اَلْمَاءُ يَحْجُبُهُ فَصَارَ يَشَمُّ اَلطُّعْمَ مِنَ اَلْبُعْدِ اَلْبَعِيدِ فَيَنْتَجِعُهُ فَيَتَّبِعُهُ وَ إِلاَّ فَكَيْفَ يَعْلَمُ بِهِ وَ بِمَوْضِعِهِ وَ اِعْلَمْ أَنَّ مِنْ فِيهِ إِلَى صِمَاخِهِ مَنَافِذَ فَهُوَ يَعُبُّ اَلْمَاءَ بِفِيهِ وَ يُرْسِلُهُ مِنْ صِمَاخَيْهِ فَيَتَرَوَّحُ إِلَى ذَلِكَ كَمَا يَتَرَوَّحُ غَيْرُهُ مِنَ اَلْحَيَوَانِ إِلَى تَنَسُّمِ هَذَا اَلنَّسِيمِ

Tawheed al Mufaddal: The FISH in the Words of Imam al Sadiq (A.S.):

O Mufaddal !
Just consider the fish and circumstances under which it is ordained to lead its life.
It has no legs, since its residence is in water and it does not need to walk. It has no lungs, as it cannot breathe. It is kept under the surface of water. Instead of legs, it is endowed with stout fins with which it pierces the water on both sides; just as a boatman uses two oars. It has a covering of thick scales, interlocked with each other like the links of a coat of armor to protect itself. It has a penetrating faculty of smell, as compensation for weak eyesight
blurred by water. It smells its material from a distance and goes towards it. How else could it have learnt the whereabouts and nature of the food material? And, know too, that it has orifices all along the mouth to the ears, through which water passes and gives it the same refreshing exuberation as is derived by other animals by breathing in fresh cool morning breeze.
