It is narrated in the story of the people of Yunus (Jonah) by a group of interpreters, that the people of Yunus (Jonah) were in Nineveh from the land of Mosul and they used to worship idols, so God sent them Yunus (Jonah), peace be upon him, inviting them to Islam and leaving what they were upon, but they refused, It was said: He kept praying for them for nine years and despaired of their faith.
