Prophet Yunus (peace be upon him) made a tireless effort to show them the divine way, but they refused to listen to him. One day, he angrily left them and traveled along a river.

(Holy Quran, Chapter:21, Verse:87)

Prophet Yunus (peace be upon him) kept moving upto the river and soon got on a boat. When the boat reached the middle of the river, it started to sink because it was too heavy. The people on the boat decided that one of them would have to be thrown off to save the lives of the others.

[When he went away towards a laden boat. And cast lots and was of the pushed ones.]

Thus the prophet Yunus (peace be upon him) was thrown into the water. Allah, The Almighty, ordered a whale to swallow him and keep the Prophet in his stomach without eating him.
[Then a fish swallowed him and he was blaming himself.]

Constantly Prophet Yunus (peace be upon him) made dua for his release and finally Allah, The Almighty, set him free from the big fish.
[…..then he cried out in the darkness, ‘there is none to be worshipped but you, glory is to you, undoubtedly, I did an improper act.’ Then we responded to his call and relieved him from the grief……..]
(Holy Quran, Chapter: 21, Verses:87-88)
