Sūra Yūnus (Arabic: سورة يونس) is the tenth sura of the Qur'an. It is a Makki sura located in juz' eleven. This sura was named "Yunus" because it explains the life of the Prophet Yunus (a). Sura Yunus speaks about the issues of revelation, the Prophet (s), signs of the glory of creation and transience of this world and invites people to the hereafter. In this sura, the story of flood of Noah (a), the life of Moses (a) and people of Pharaoh are mentioned as well.
One of the famous verses of Sura Yunus is verse thirty-eight in which the Prophet (s) challenges the rejecters and tells them that if they are true to their word, they should bring one sura like the suras of the Qur'an. It is said that this challenge is the sign of miracle nature of the Qur'an. In hadiths, it is mentioned that whoever recites Sura Yunus, God will give him rewards ten times of those who accepted or rejected Prophet Yunus (a) and those who were drowned together with Pharaoh.
