Jonah - (Yunus)
AN NISAA 4
We have inspired you as We had inspired Noah and the prophets after him.
And We had inspired Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and Jesus, and Job, and Jonah, and Aaron, and Solomon; and We gave David the Psalms.
And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot; and each We have preferred over the worlds. And from their fathers and their progeny and their brothers We have also chosen; and We guided them to a straight path.
If there was any town that benefited from its belief, then that was the people of Jonah.
When they believed, We removed from them the retribution of disgrace in this worldly life, and We let them enjoy until a time.
And the one with ‘N,’ when he went off in anger, and he thought that We would not be able to take him.
Then he called out in the darkness:
“There is no god except You! Glory be to You, I was of the wicked!”
So We responded to him and We saved him from distress.
And it is such that We save the faithful.
And Jonah was one of the messengers. When he escaped to the charged ship. And he was guilty, so he became among the losers. Thus a whale swallowed him, and he was the one to blame. And had it not been that he was one of those who implored, He would have stayed in its belly until the Day of Resurrection. So We threw him on the shore while he was sick.
And We caused a tree of gourd to grow on him. And We sent him to a hundred thousand, or more. And they believed, so We gave them enjoyment for a time.
You shall be patient for the judgment of your Lord. And do not be like the companion of the whale who called out while he was in sorrow. Had it not been for the grace of his Lord,
he would have remained trapped, while he was to be blamed.
But his Lord blessed him, and made him righteous.
