Prophet Yunus (as) was chosen by ALLAH SWT for prophethood to information the folks of Nineveh to the reality and unfold the message of ALLAH SWT. He was an atypical man among the many folks of Nineveh and he spent a very long time in Nineveh making an attempt onerous to ask folks in the direction of the trail of fact, believing in ALLAH SWT, and abandon idol worship. People of Nineveh had been practising injustice and had been idolaters and disbelievers. There is a full chapter in Quran devoted to Prophet Yunus (as). ALLAH SWT mentions in Quran Have the folks been amazed that We revealed [revelation] to a person from amongst them, [saying], “Warn mankind and give good tidings to those who believe that they will have a [firm] precedence of honor with their Lord”? [But] the disbelievers say, “Indeed, this is an obvious magician.”(Al-Quran10:2)

Despite all of the struggles in convincing the folks of Nineveh to depart their disbelieve, foolishness and idolatry, folks disbelieved and denied to observe what Prophet Yunus(as) stated and argued, saying “ we and our forefathers have been worshiping these idols since ages and we have faced no harm”. Prophet Yunus (as) tried his greatest to meet the commandments of ALLAH SWT and regularly reminded them of the extreme wrath of ALLAH SWT to ad-Thamud and the folks of Nuh(as), however folks rejected him and stated that they aren’t afraid of such intimidations. When Yunus(as) discovered the folks of Nineveh to be disobedient and unreceptive of the message of ALLAH AWT, it made him downhearted and so he thought to surrender on his folks. Yunus(as) left town of Nineveh with out the permission of ALLAH SWT.

Just as quickly as Prophet Yunus(as) left town, the colour of the sky started to vary and turned crimson like fireplace. It frightened the folks of Nineveh and shortly they remembered the wrath befallen upon the folks earlier than them. And they understood that Prophet Yunus(as) was proper they usually all gathered on the mountains and felt on their knees and ask ALLAH SWT for his mercy and forgiveness. Hearing their cries and repentance the mountains echoed and ALLAH SWT probably the most forgiving and most merciful granted them forgiveness. The wrath was eliminated and ALLAH SWT lifted the punishment, the skies cleared and have become calm and the folks of Nineveh had been blessed. They prayed for the Yunus(as) and wished he would return to them.

Meanwhile, Prophet Yunus(as) boarded a small ship accompanying different passengers. He traveled within the ship all day crusing the calm sea and funky breeze blowing on his face. He felt peaceable being away from the disobedient folks of Nineveh. As quickly as night time arrived, the sear grew to become fierce and a wild storm shook the ship so onerous as it’s going to cut up the ship into items. This tempest made the passengers afraid of dropping their lives. The ship captain instructed the passengers to throw their baggage into the ocean to make it lighter. Everyone did as directed but it surely made no distinction and the ship continued shaking and sinking because it was nonetheless heavy.

So the captain determined to sacrifice the life of 1 particular person to avoid wasting others and that particular person should soar into the ocean. To determine who will soar, they draw tons. Prophet Yunus(as) title obtained chosen, nonetheless, nobody agreed to throw him as they knew that Prophet Yunus(as) in a noble and righteous man. So they draw tons once more. They did so 3 times and each time Prophet Yunus(as’s) title appeared. Prophet Yunus(as) realized that it’s the need of ALLAH SWT and he jumped off the ship himself. Following the instructions of ALLAH SWT, an enormous whale swallowed up Prophet Yunus(as) as quickly as he jumped into the ocean.

ALLAH SWT made Prophet Yunus(as) survive contained in the whale’s abdomen for a number of days. In the deep darkness contained in the whale, Prophet Yunus(as) realized his mistake of leaving the ALLAH SWT’s command incomplete. He repented and requested for forgiveness from ALLAH SWT. He prayed to ALLAH SWT sincerely and prostrated contained in the whale’s womb and recited this dua: La ilaha illa Anta (none has the correct to be worshipped however You (O Allah), Glorified (and Exalted) be You (above all that evil they affiliate with You), Truly, I’ve been of the wrongdoers.” (Al-Quran 21:87 ).

Prophet Yunus(as) a lot contained in the whale, that every one the creatures of the ocean heard his repentance and prayers and gathered and praised ALLAH SWT’s glory.

ALLAH SWT accepted the prayers of Prophet Yunus(as) and granted him forgiveness. The whale spits the Prophet Yunus(as) on the seashore as commanded by ALLAH SWT. he grew to become very sick and infected being contained in the whales’ womb for a lot of days so ALLAH SWT offered him meals from a fig tree and returned him into nice well being. Indeed ALLAH SWT is probably the most merciful and forgiving and loves his believers who repent sincerely for his or her wrongdoings and ignorance.

When Prophet Yunus(as) recovered fully, he returned to Nineveh to finish his left mission, nonetheless when he arrived there, and witnessed that the folks of Nineveh had embraced Islam and had been eagerly ready for him. Seeing this, Prophet Yunus(as) prostrated to ALLAH SWT to thank ALLAH SWT for all his favors.

Almighty ALLAH SWT mentions in Quran:
And, verily, Jonah was one of many Messengers. When he ran to the laden ship, he agreed to forged tons and he was among the many losers, Then an enormous fish swallowed him and he had completed an act worthy of blame. Had he not been of them who glorify Allah, he would have certainly remained inside its stomach (the fish) until the Day of Resurrection. But We forged him forth on the bare shore whereas he was sick and We precipitated a plant of gourd to develop over him. And We despatched him to 100 thousand folks or much more, they usually believed, so We gave them enjoyment for some time. (Ch 37:139-148 Quran).
