Prophet Yunus Dua

In Arabic:

لَّآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّآ أَنتَ سُبْحَٰنَكَ إِنِّى كُنتُ مِنَ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ

Transliteration: la ilaha illa anta subhanaka inni kuntu minaz-zalimin

English Meaning: There is no deity except You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.

This ayat (commonly referred to as Ayat E Kareema or just Ayat Karima) is mentioned in Surah Anbiya Verse 87. 
 
It was sufficient for Prophet Yunus (may peace be upon him) when he was trapped in the darkness alone in the belly of a whale. In the Quran it says that because he recited this Dua he was relieved of this burden.
