Prophet Shu'ayb (a)

The Prophet Shu'ayb
was a descendent
of the Prophet Ibrahim.
He was sent to Midian and the
Dwellers of the wood to give
them Allah's message.

The Midianite people
committed many sins.

They gave short measures
and weights,
they robbed people and
caused mischief but most
seriously they tried to stop
people from
worshipping Allah.

Shu'ayb tried to make
them change but they
would not listen to him.
They wanted to throw
him out and all the
people who had
listened to his words.

Then Allah sent an
earthquake and all
the evil people were
destroyed because they
would not obey the
word of Allah.

Prophet Yunus (a)

The prophet Yunus
was sent to Ninevah.
He became known as the
Lord of the Fish (Dhan-Nun).
He warned the people about
their evil ways and told them
to follow Allah but they
would not listen.

Yunus was so angry he left.
He sailed away but the ship
was so full and heavy,
poor Yunus
was thrown
overboard.

He was
swallowed by an
enormous fish and he
lived in its belly
for three days.
Then the fish spewed
him out on a shore.
He was very ill but
Allah was protecting him.

A plant grew
and its leaves protected
Yunus from the sun and
kept the flies away.
A wild goat provided him
with milk. When he became
better he went back to
Ninevah and gave the
people Allah's message
once more. This time
the people listened
and Allah forgave them.

Prophet Ayyub (a)

The Prophet Ayyub had
been a wealthy man.

He was a very good
man but he lost his family
and his wealth.

He became ill and had terrible
sores all over his body.
However he never gave up.
He spent his time praying.
He was very patient and
always kept his faith in Allah.
Eventually Allah showed mercy.
He told Ayyub to strike the earth
with his foot and miraculously
a fountain appeared.

He drank the water and used
it to wash his body.
All his sores were healed
and everything was returned
to him as before.

Allah had rewarded him for
keeping his faith despite the
terrible afflictions he
had tested him with.
