Prophet Yunus (pbuh)

And Yunus was most surely of the apostles. 37:139

When he ran away to a ship completely laden, 37:140

So he shared (with them), but was of those who are cast off. 37:141

So the fish swallowed him while he did that for which he blamed himself. 37:142

And Yunus, when he went away in wrath, so he thought that We would not straiten him, so he called out among afflictions: There is no god but Thou, glory be to Thee; surely I am of those who make themselves to suffer loss. 21:87

So We responded to him and delivered him from the grief and thus do We deliver the believers. 21:88


The iconic aya of Ayatul Kareema 21:87 is one that Prophet Yunus recited in the belly of the fish and which granted him salvation. “LAA ILAHA ILLA ANTA, SUBHANAKA INNIY KUNTU LINAZH ZHAALIMEEN”


…..There is no God except You, Indeed I am amongst those who are unjust to themselves
