Would the chastisement be removed by supplication-prayer when it comes to pass?

The answer with truth:
In the name of Allah the All Merciful, the Most Merciful, prayer of forgiveness and peace be upon the entire prophets and messengers from the first of them till the seal of them; the illiterate prophet Mohammad messenger of Allah,we do not make distinction among anyone of His messengers, and we are submitting Muslims to Him, after this...
Allah’s peace, mercy and His blessings be upon you my beloved inquirer for Allah’s sake: (Does the supplication-prayer removes the chastisement when it comes to pass?), and we leave you with the answer from the Lord directly. Allah the Most High said: And why was there not a town which believed, so that their belief should have profited them, but the people of Jonah? When they believed, We removed from them the chastisement of disgrace in this world’s life, and We gave them provision for a while. [Younus] 10:98
And Allah the Most High said: So wait for the day when the heaven brings a manifest smoke,(10) Enveloping the people. This is a painful chastisement.(11) Our Lord, remove from us the chastisement — surely we are believers.(12) When will they be reminded? And a messenger has indeed come, making clear;(13) Yet they turned away from him and said: One taught (by others), a madman!(14) We shall remove the chastisement a little, (but) you will surely return (to evil).(15) On the day when We seize (them) with the most violent seizing; surely We shall exact retribution.(16)
Truthful Allah the Great [Al-Dukhãn] 44:10-16
And yes indeed, you can never find a change in Allah’s (way), His sunna about the ways (the sunnan) of chastisement in the Book. Confirming with the word of Allah the Most High: And how many a town which was iniquitous did We demolish, and We raised up other people after it!(11) So when they felt Our might, lo! they began to flee from it.(12) Flee not and return to the easy lives which you led, and to your dwellings, that you may be questioned.(13) They said: O woe to us! Surely we were unjust.(14) And this cry of theirs did not cease till We made them still and silent (as ashes).(15) And We created not the heaven and the earth and what is between them for sport.(16)
Truthful Allah the Great [Al-Anbyãa´] 21:11-16
Now the true explanatory statement for the word of Allah the Most High: They said: O woe to us! Surely we were unjust.(14) And this cry of theirs did not cease till We made them still and silent (as ashes).(15) Truthful Allah the Great; which means, that their cry did not cease, which is the confession about their wrongdoing but they did not ask Allah for his mercy until (Allah) made them still and silent (as ashes). This is due to the fact that, belief in Allah, Him Alone, and their confession about their wrongdoing would never benefit them unless accompanied with the supplication of mercy so they would say: “Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves, if You do not forgive us and (not) have mercy on us we certainly would be of the losers”; so this is an admission that they do not have except Allah’s mercy the Most Merciful than all who have mercy, for the fact the argument has been held against them, surely belief alone and admission about their wrongdoing to themselves would never benefit them if is not accompanied with their supplication-prayer to their Lord by the fact of His mercy that He ordained upon HimSelf. So what do you think the cause of the chastisement removal from the people of Allah’s messenger Younus was? It was only that when the chastisement came to pass they admitted their wrongdoing to themselves, then a servant of Allah’s righteous servants taught them to ask for Allah’s mercy? Then they asked Allah by the fact of His mercy that He ordained upon HimSelf to forgive them and have mercy upon them and His promise is ever true by responding to the supplication-prayer and He is the Most Merciful than all who have mercy; despite the fact that the sunna of chastisement came to them, of which the belief alone does not benefit when chastisement befalls, nor the admission that they wronged themselves unless accompanied with asking Allah for His mercy and His promise is ever true and He is the Most Merciful than all who have mercy. Verily, in this is the hidden secret of the removal of chastisement of disgrace away from people of Allah’s messenger Younus prayer of forgiveness and peace be upon him. They changed their fate by using the (sincere) supplication-prayer to their Lord to have mercy upon them and His promise is ever true and He is the Most Merciful than all who have mercy. For that they change the sunna of chastisement in the Book, so Allah responded to them, indeed Allah has power over all things. Confirming with the word of Allah the Most High: And why was there not a town which believed, so that their belief should have profited them, but the people of Jonah? When they believed, We removed from them the chastisement of disgrace in this world’s life, and We gave them provision for a while.[Younus] 10:98
That’s because Allah has power over all things. He answers the supplication-prayer of the asking individual if he calls upon Him devoting to Him the supplication-prayer that they do not have anything but His mercy to save them. In fact, they can remove even the chastisement of the Hour when it comes to pass if they beseech Allah devoting the supplication - prayer to Him admitting their wrongdoing to themselves and believing in the mercy of Allah the Most Merciful than all who have mercy so they would ask Him His mercy, and His promise is ever true and He is the Most Merciful than all who have mercy. And He removes by asking Him His mercy even when the chastisement of the Hour comes to pass, so He would delay it till Allah pleases. And Allah the Most High said: Say: See, if the chastisement of Allah overtake you or the Hour come upon you, will you call on others than Allah, if you are truthful?(40) In fact, Him you call upon, so He removes that for which you pray, if He pleases, and you forget what you set up (with Him).(41) And indeed We sent (messengers) to nations before you then We seized them with distress and affliction that they might humble themselves.(42)
Truthful Allah the Great [Al-An`ãm] 6:40-42
Surely we do not have puzzles in the Fatwas about Allah’s religion, and we seek refuge in Allah that we be of the ignorant ones! In fact, we issue fatwas with truth and we call on others to (follow) the path of Allah the All Mighty, the Praised One, upon sure knowledge from Allah; the true explanatory statement for the glorious Quran. So be grateful (to Allah) my beloveds for Allah’s pleasure, it seems that you did not read the explanatory-statements of the Imam Mahdi but few, then ask the rooted ones about the knowledge of the explanatory-statements they bring to you the answer for your question from the sea of explanatory-statements of the Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni. And peace be upon the messengers, and praise be to Allah Lord of the worlds..
