Prophet Younes was locked in the stomach of a whale for 40 days. Allahu Akhbar. He had no food, no family, no friends, nothing! He was all alone in the stomach…… so he supplicated this dua to Allah asking for forgiveness….
My mother reminded me of this dua. I remembered reciting this supplication when i was 7 months pregnant with my fourth child. I had some complication during labour when i was at 35/36 weeks of gestation. This supplication made me calm. It felt as though i had taken some kind of drug (even though i was not taking any drugs or under any sedation), i felt as though i was floating all the while, i felt at ease, no worries. I gave birth through C-section. My daughter is now 6 years of age. Alhamdulillah.
Keep reciting as this is a powerful dua. In sha Allah.
