71:1  Surely We sent Nuh to his people (saying), "Warn your people even before there comes up to them a painful torment."
71:2  He said, "O my people, surely I am to you an evident warner
71:3  (Saying) Worship Allah, and be pious to Him, and obey me
71:4  He will forgive you (some) of your guilty deeds and defer you to a stated term; surely the term of Allah, when it comes, cannot be deferred, if you (only) know."
71:5  He said, "Lord! Surely I have called my people by night and by daytime
71:6  Yet my calling increased them (in nothing) except in flight
71:7  And surely whenever I call them that You may forgive them, they set (Literally: made "up") their fingers in their ears, and enveloped themselves with their clothes, and persisted, and waxed proud (with insolent) arrogance (Literally: in "arrogant" pride)
71:8  Thereafter, surely I called them aloud
71:9  Thereafter, surely I called them publicly, and I secretly (spoke) to them in private (Literally: in secret "conversation")
71:10  So I have said, Ask forgiveness of your Lord; surely He has been (The) Superb Forgiver
71:11  He will send down on you (rain) from the heaven showering plentifully
71:12  And He will supply you with riches and sons, (Or: seeds) and will set up (Literally: make) for you gardens, and will set up for you rivers
71:13  For what (reason) you do not hope to get reward from Allah for having reverence towards Him
71:14  And He already created you by stages
71:15  Have you not seen how Allah created seven heavens as strata, (i.e., in layers)
71:16  And He has made the moon therein for a light, and He has made the sun for a luminary
71:17  And Allah has caused you to grow as a growth from the earth
71:18  Thereafter He will bring you back into it, and He will bring you out (again) a (new) forthcoming (Literally: a bringing out)
71:19  And Allah has the earth for you as an outspread (rug)
71:20  That you may travel along thereof (spacious) ways, ravines. "
71:21  Nuh said, "Lord! Surely they have disobeyed me, and closely followed him whose wealth and children have not increased them in anything except (greater) loss
71:22  And they have schemed a heinous scheming
71:23  And they have said, ‘Definitely do not leave (behind) your gods, and do not definitely leave behind Wadd or Suwa‘ or Yaghuth or Ya‘uq or Nasr (These are names of pagan gods.
71:24  And they have already led many into error. And increase You Allah), the unjust ones in nothing except error!"
71:25  For whatever offenses (they committed), they were drowned, and then were made to enter a Fire; so they did not find, apart from Allah, any ready vindicators
71:26  And Nuh said, "Lord! Do not leave (out) upon the earth of the disbelievers any residence-dweller
71:27  Surely in case You leave them behind, they will lead Your bondmen into error, and will beget none except the most- disbelieving impious
71:28  Lord, Forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my home as believer, and male believers and female believers; and do not increase the unjust ones except in annihilation!"
