10:98 and only Jonah's community believed

Salaam.All
Is the community of Jonah the only ones to believe their messenger? As per 10:98

(Sahih International)
Then has there not been a [single] city that believed so its faith benefited it except the people of Jonah? When they believed, We removed from them the punishment of disgrace in worldly life and gave them enjoyment for a time.

-Surah Yunus, Ayah 98

Wa 3alykum Assalam

Dear miracle114

According to the Quran, only the community of Jonah were the ones to believe and benefited from their belief. Seems that they acted upon their belief which profited them. Which goes on to show that God had removed from them the punishment of disgrace in this life and gave them comfort.

It seems that in almost all communities that God has sent messengers to, the majority of the people disbelieved and God saved the few that did believe.

The Examples in the Quran are many.

To every people/nation/community there is a period of time. Possibly a time to recollect, think, ponder, research, contemplate, or examine what has been presented to us from messengers, signs and manifestations that were around us in the span of time that we are granted. When that time is over, no one can delay or fast-forward an hour. Only God knows when that time is up. 7:34, 10:49

Depending on how the Lord views a people/nation/community, one cant help but to think that we maybe evolving into one big nation. God knows best.
