وَأَيُّوبَ إِذْ نَادَىٰ رَبَّهُ أَنِّي مَسَّنِيَ ٱلضُّرُّ وَأَنتَ أَرْحَمُ ٱلرَّاحِمِينَ
-Al-Anbiyâ’ ( الأنبياء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And, mention, Job (Ayyūba, is substituted by [the following, idh nādā rabbahu …]) when he called out to his Lord — after he had been afflicted with the loss of all of his possessions and children, the laceration of his body, his being shunned by all except his wife, for a period of thirteen, seventeen, or eighteen years, as well as [the affliction of enduring] a straitened means of livelihood — ‘Indeed (read annī because of the implicit yā’ [of the first person pronoun]) harm, adversity, has befallen me, and You are the Most Merciful of the merciful’.
