Quran's Tafhim ( explanation)

*82) That is, Jonah. Literally Zun-Nun means `the man of the fish". He was called so because he was devoured by a fish by the Command of AIIah. (Also See XXXV11:142 and X:98 and its E.N.'s 98-100).
*83) Prophet Jonah left his people before he received Allah's Command for migration.
*84) He presumed that he should leave, the place which was going to be visited by the scourge of Allah. This was not by itself an offence but it was an offence for a Prophet to leave the place of his Mission without the permission of Allah.
*85) "....darkness": the darkness in the belly of the fish and the darkness of the sea over and above it.
