Please choose the correct answer from the brackets:

 

In this story, Yunus (AS) was living in Ninevah, in Northern Iraq, and had been ordered by ………………………. (Allah-Prophet Muhamed) to teach the people to worship one God and repent for their previous sins.

However the people…………………(refused-agreed) to acknowledge Prophet Yunus’ message, and continued in their evil ways.

After experiencing immense frustration and hurt, Yunus left Ninevah in …………………..(anger-happiness).

However, after he left, the people recognised their mistake, repented and Allah (SWT) forgave them.

The people of Ninevah even went out into the dessert searching for Prophet Yunus (AS), to tell him the good news, but they were too late; he was already aboard of ……………………….(a ship-airplane), out on the ocean.

Indeed Allah (SWT) did punish Prophet ………………(Yunus-Mohamed), by sending a storm like no other!

The men on the ship, terrified of being over-turned by the waves, began throwing everything overboard, however it was not enough. They decided amongst themselves that one of the men would be thrown over. They drew lots three times, and each time…………….. (Prophet Yunus – prophet Ibraheem) was chosen to be thrown into the sea. The crew did not want to throw him in, but Prophet Yunus, recognising that this was the decree of Allah (SWT), jumped overboard. He put his trust in Allah (SWT).

At that moment, Allah (SWT) sent a great ………………………(whale-shrimp) to Yunus (AS), and ordered to swallow him whole, without harming him.

 Prophet Yunus sat in darkness, reflecting. Realising the mistake he had made, he called out to Allah.

The duaa, said by Prophet Yunus, inside the whale, is one of the most well-known duaas in the Quran:

“There is no God but You, Glorified be You! Truly, I have been of the wrongdoers.”
