وَذَا ٱلنُّونِ إِذ ذَّهَبَ مُغَاضِباً فَظَنَّ أَن لَّن نَّقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ فَنَادَىٰ فِي ٱلظُّلُمَاتِ أَن لاَّ إِلَـٰهَ إِلاَّ أَنتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنتُ مِنَ ٱلظَّالِمِينَ
-Al-Anbiyâ’ ( الأنبياء )

Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

(And (mention) Dhu'l-Nun) and mention the person of the whale, i.e. Jonah the son of Mathew (Matta), (when he went off in anger) with the king (and deemed that We had no power over him) i.e. to punish him, (but he cried out in the darkness) the darkness of the sea and the darkness of the whele's entrails and the darkness of its belly, (saying: There is no God save Thee. Be Thou glorified!) I repent to You (I have been a wrong-doer) I wronged myself when I became angry with Your command.
