Prophet Yunus (a)
The prophet Yunus was sent to Ninevah. He became known as the Lord of the Fish (Dhan-Nun). He warned the people about their evil ways and told them to follow Allah but they would not listen.
Yunus was so angry he left. He sailed away but the ship was so full and heavy, poor Yunus was thrown overboard.
He was swallowed by an enormous fish and he lived in its belly for three days. Then the fish spewed him out on a shore. He was very ill but Allah was protecting him.
A plant grew and its leaves protected Yunus from the sun and kept the flies away. A wild goat provided him with milk. When he became better he went back to Ninevah and gave the people Allah's message once more. This time the people listened and Allah forgave them.
