71:1  Verily, We sent Nuh (Noah) to his people (with the command, saying): "Warn your people before there comes to them a painful penalty."
71:2  He said: "O my people! Verily, I am an open warner to you
71:3  "That you should worship Allah, fear Him and obey me
71:4  "So He will forgive you your sins and give you relief for a fixed (and written) time: Verily, when the time is finished by Allah it cannot be put forward (changed or altered): If you only knew:"
71:5  He said: "O my Lord! Verily, I have called to my people night and day
71:6  "But my calling them only increases (their) flight (from the right)
71:7  "And verily, every time I have called to them, that You may forgive them, they have (only) pushed their fingers into their ears, covered themselves up with their clothes, grown firmer (against faith), and given themselves up to false pride
71:8  "Then verily, I have called them loudly
71:9  "Then verily, I have spoken to them in public and secretly in private
71:10  "Saying to them, ‘Ask forgiveness from your Lord; Verily, He is Often Forgiving (Ghafa'r)
71:11  " ‘He will send rain to you in plenty
71:12  " ‘Give you increase in wealth and children; And grant to you gardens and grant to you rivers (of flowing water)
71:13  " ‘What is the matter with you, that you do not place your hope for kindness and long-suffering in Allah—
71:14  " ‘Seeing that it is He Who has created you in many different stages
71:15  " ‘Do you not see how Allah has created the seven heavens, one above another
71:16  " ‘And made the moon a light in the middle, and made the sun as a (glorious) lamp
71:17  " ‘And Allah has produced you from the earth, growing (you gradually)
71:18  " ‘And in the end, He will return you into the (earth) and raise you up (again at the Resurrection)
71:19  " ‘And Allah has made the earth for you as a carpet (a wide expanse, spread out)
71:20  " ‘That you may go about in there on broad and spacious roads?’ "
71:21  Nuh (Noah) said: "My Lord! They have disobeyed me, and they follow one whose wealth and children give them no increase but only loss
71:22  "And they have planned a huge (and evil) plot
71:23  "And they have said (to each other); ‘do not give up your gods: And do not give up Wadd, nor Suwa, neither Yaguth, nor Ya’uq, nor Nasr’—" (These are the false gods of the people of Nuh
71:24  "And indeed, they have already misled many; And (Allah,) You grant no increase to the wrongdoers but in wandering (aimlessly in their goal)."
71:25  Because of their sins they were drowned (in the Flood), and they were made to enter the Fire (of punishment) and they found— Other than Allah, none to help them
71:26  And Nuh (Noah) said: "My Lord! Do not leave of the unbelievers, (even) a single one on earth
71:27  "For, if You do leave (any of) them, they will only mislead Your servants and they will breed only the wicked ungrateful ones
71:28  "My Lord! Forgive me, and my parents, and all who enter my house in Faith, and (all) believing men and believing women. And to the wrongdoers, You grant them no increase except in their loss!"
