71:1  We sent Noah to his people, saying, 'Warn thy people, ere there come on them a painful chastisement.
71:2  He said, 'O my people, I am unto you a clear warner
71:3  saying, "Serve God, and fear Him, and obey you me
71:4  and He will forgive you your sins, and defer you to a stated term; God's term, when it comes, cannot be deferred, did you but know."
71:5  He said; 'My Lord, I have called my people by night and by day
71:6  but my calling has only increased them in flight
71:7  And whenever I called them, that Thou mightest forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears, and wrapped them in their garments, and persisted, and waxed very proud
71:8  Then indeed I called them openly
71:9  then indeed I spoke publicly unto them, and I spoke unto them secretly
71:10  and I said, "Ask you forgiveness of your Lord; surely He is ever All-forgiving
71:11  and He will loose heaven upon you in torrent
71:12  and will succour you with wealth and sons, and will appoint for you gardens, and will appoint for you rivers
71:13  What ails you, that you look not for majesty in God
71:14  seeing He created you by stages
71:15  Have you not regarded how God created seven heavens one upon another
71:16  and set the moon therein for a light and the sun for a lamp
71:17  And God caused you to grow out of the earth
71:18  then He shall return you into it, and bring you forth
71:19  And God has laid the earth for you as a carpet
71:20  that thereof you may thread ways, ravines."
71:21  Noah said, 'My Lord, they have rebelled against me, and followed him whose wealth and children increase him only in loss
71:22  and have devised a mighty devic
71:23  and have said, "Do not leave your gods, and do not leave Wadd, nor Suwa', Yaghuth, Ya'uq, neither Nasr."
71:24  And they have led many astray. Increase Thou not the evildoers save in error!
71:25  And because of their transgressions they were drowned, and admitted into a Fire, for they found not, apart from God, any to help them
71:26  And Noah said, 'My Lord, leave not upon the earth of the unbelievers even one
71:27  Surely, if Thou leavest them, they will lead Thy servants astray, and will beget none but unbelieving libertines
71:28  My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whosoever enters my house as a believer, and the believers, men and women alike; and do Thou not increase the evildoers save in ruin!
