And [mention] the man of the fish, when he went off in anger and thought that We would not decree [anything] upon him. And he called out within the darknesses, “There is no deity except You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.” [Al Anbiya: 87]
This verse refers to Yunus (as) who left his people in anger and ended up in the stomach of a whale. He did not wait for the commandment of Allah (swt) and when he was in the stomach of the whale he realized his mistake. In his haste he had forgotten to continue obeying the commands of Allah (swt). There are many things to learn from this incident the first being that we should not be hasty and when we realize our mistake we should immediately turn to Allah (Swt).
