Sometimes Allah transmutes humans into
animals. In verse 6:74, we learn that Abraham
admonished his father (Terah or Azar) for
worshipping idols. Ibn Kathir writes that on the
resurrection day Allah will turn Abraham’s father
into a male hyena covered with dung, and throw
him into hellfire.

Even in the temporal life, Allah performs this
human‐animal transmutation. Verse 2:65 (also
see 5:60, 7:163, and 7:166) say that some Jews
(Children of Israel) desecrated the Sabbath, so
Allah turned them into apes and swine.
Elaborating this incredible feat, ibn Kathir writes
that they (the Jews) began using deceitful means
to avoid honouring the Sabbath by placing nets,
ropes, and artificial pools of water for fishing
before the Sabbath. When the fish came in abundance on Saturday as usual, they were
caught in the ropes and nets for the rest of Saturday. During the night, the Jews collected th
fish after the Sabbath ended. When they did that, Allah changed them from humans into
monkeys, the animals having the form closest to humans; the young people turned into
howling monkeys with tails while the older people were turned into swine. They lived on
earth only for three days. They did not eat, drink, or had offspring.

e

Confirmed by Ibn Abbas, this transmutation happened during the time of David.
