71:1  Verily, we sent Noah to his people, 'Warn thy people before there come to them a grievous torment!
71:2  Said he, 'O my people! verily, I am to you an obvious warner
71:3  that ye serve God and fear Him and obey me
71:4  He will pardon you your sins, and will defer you unto an appointed time; verily, God's appointed time when it comes will not be deferred, did ye but know!
71:5  Said he, 'My Lord! verily, I have called my people by night and day
71:6  and my call did but increase them in flight
71:7  and, verily, every time I called them, that Thou mightest pardon them, they placed their fingers in their ears and tried to cover themselves with their garments and persisted, and were very big with pride
71:8  Then I called them openly
71:9  then I published to them and I spoke to them in secret
71:10  and I said, "Ask forgiveness of your Lord, verily, He is very forgiving
71:11  He will send the rain upon you in torrents
71:12  and will extend to you wealth and children, and will make for you gardens, and will make for you rivers
71:13  What ails you that ye hope not for something serious from God
71:14  when He has created you by steps
71:15  Do ye not see how God has created the seven heavens in stories
71:16  and has set the moon therein for a light, and set the sun for a lamp
71:17  and God has made you grow out of the earth
71:18  and then He will make you return thereto, and will make you come forth therefrom
71:19  and God has made for you the earth a carpe
71:20  that ye may walk therein in broad paths."
71:21  Said Noah, 'My Lord! verily, they have rebelled against me, and followed him whose wealth and children have but added to his loss
71:22  and they have plotted a great plot
71:23  and said, "Ye shall surely not leave your gods: ye shall surely neither leave Wadd, nor Suwah, nor Yaghuth, nor Ya'uq, nor Nasr
71:24  and they led astray many."' And thou (Mohammed) wilt only increase the unjust in their error
71:25  because of their sins they were drowned and made to enter into the fire, and they found no helpers against God
71:26  And Noah said, 'My Lord! leave not upon the earth one dweller of the misbelievers
71:27  Verily, Thou, if Thou shouldst leave them, they will lead astray Thy servants, and they will only bear for children sinners and misbelievers
71:28  My Lord! pardon me and my two parents, and whomsoever enters my house believing, and (pardon) the believers men and women - but Thou shalt only increase the unjust in loss.
