Explanation:
You can also say:
يحتوي المحيط على منحة الحياة العظمى
"Yahtawi-L-Muheetu 'Ala Minhati-L-Hayati-L-'Othma" where "th" is pronounced as in the word "the" in English.
- Or simply:
وفي المحيط منحة الحياة العظمى
"Wafi-L-Muheeti Minhati-L-Hayati-L-'Othma"
Remember: "Al-Hayati" is a feminine noun so the qualifying word "Al-'Othma" has to follow the same gender and you can't say "Al-A'tham" because that qualifies a masculine noun.
