The Story of Yunus

Allah tells,

وَإِنَّ يُونُسَ لَمِنَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ



And verily, Yunus was one of the Messengers.

We have already discussed the story of Yunus, peace be upon him, in Surah Al-Anbiya' (21;87-88)

In the Two Sahihs it is reported that the Messenger of Allah said;

مَا يَنْبَغِي لِعَبْدٍ أَنْ يَقُولَ أَنَا خَيْرٌ مِنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ مَتَّى

It is not right for any person to say I am better than Yunus bin Matta.

إِذْ أَبَقَ إِلَى الْفُلْكِ الْمَشْحُونِ
