The Relief from Distress an Explanation to the Du’a of Yunus – Ibn Taymiyyah

“An explanation to the Du’a of Yunus (the Dua of Dhun-Nun Yunus) by which he invoked Allah from within the belly of the whale was, ‘There is none worthy of worship except You. You are pure.  Verily, I am amongst the oppressors.’ (TMQ Al-Anbiya 21:87) The Prophet (SAW) said about the Invocation of Yunus, ‘None who is experiencing difficulty employs it except that Allah would relieve him of his difficulty.’ Shaikh-ul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah was asked about the dua of Yunus and he answers it in the form of this book.”
