Yunus and the Whale
When Yunus, a prophet in the city of Niniveh, can’t convince the people to listen and change their ways (as Allah has instructed), he is discouraged and decides to run far away from everyone — even Allah, if he can. It is a clear day when Yunus finds a boat and boards it, but suddenly, in the midst of the journey, a storm strikes. When the sailors declare the storm must have been sent from Allah because of someone on the boat, Yunus volunteers to be thrown overboard. Into the sea he falls, until he finds himself surrounded by little fish and more… swallowed whole, in the belly of a whale! This exciting tale, one in a series of children’s books, is revisited here as told in the Holy Qur’an with colorful illustrations and lively text.
