{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=Unreferenced |date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Message box|ambox}} }} 'Uj ibn Anaq ('Ûj ibn 'Anâq) is a giant, portrayed by some clerics although not mentioned in the Quran. The origins of this character lay in Jewish lore and the Old Testament, e.g. king Og. He takes his ‘surname’ from his mother Anaq – ‘Anâq; cf. Book of Numbers 13:33– who begat him after an incestuous affair. Famous and much painted episodes include his fight with the prophet Moses (Musa), and his fishing and frying of whales, while he stands just about knee-deep in the ocean.
