In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
(37:139) And indeed, Jonah was among the messengers.
(37:140) [Mention] when he ran away to the laden ship.
(37:141) And he drew lots and was among the losers.
(37:142) Then the fish swallowed him, while he was blameworthy.
(37:143) And had he not been of those who exalt Allah,
(37:144) He would have remained inside its belly until the Day they are resurrected.
(37:145) But We threw him onto the open shore while he was ill.
(37:146) And We caused to grow over him a gourd vine.
(37:147) And We sent him to [his people of] a hundred thousand or more.
(37:148) And they believed, so We gave them enjoyment [of life] for a time.
(21:87) And [mention] the man of the fish, when he went off in anger and thought that We would not decree [anything] upon him. And he called out within the darknesses, “There is no deity except You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.”
(21:88) So We responded to him and saved him from the distress. And thus do We save the believers.
(68:48) Then be patient for the decision of your Lord, and be not like the companion of the fish when he called out while he was distressed.
(68:49) If not that a favor from his Lord overtook him, he would have been thrown onto the naked shore while he was censured.
(68:50) And his Lord chose him and included him among the righteous.
(10:98) Then has there not been a [single] city that believed so its faith benefited it except the people of Jonah? When they believed, We removed from them the punishment of disgrace in worldly life and gave them enjoyment for a time.
(10:99) And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed – all of them entirely. Then, would you compel the people in order that they become believers?
(10:100) And it is not for a soul to believe except by permission of Allah, and He will place defilement upon those who will not use reason.
