71:1  Surely, We sent Nuh (Noah) to his people: ‘Warn your people before a painful torment comes upon them.
71:2  He said: ‘O my people! Indeed, I am a clear Warner to you
71:3  That you must worship Allah and fear Him and obey me
71:4  He will forgive your sins and will give you respite till an appointed term. Surely, when (the appointed) time of Allah comes, then respite is not given if only you knew.
71:5  Nuh (Noah) submitted: ‘O my Lord! Indeed, I kept calling my people night and day
71:6  But my calling did no good except making them flee away
71:7  And every time I called them (towards faith) so that You might forgive them, they only thrust their fingers into their ears and wrapped their clothes over themselves and stuck obstinately (to disbelief) and behaved most arrogantly
71:8  Then I called them aloud
71:9  Then I advised them publicly and privately and secretly (as well)
71:10  Then I said: ‘Seek forgiveness from your Lord. Surely, He is Most Forgiving
71:11  He will send down on you torrents of rain
71:12  And will help you with wealth and sons and will grow for you gardens and will make streams flow for you
71:13  What is the matter with you that you do not have faith in, or the gnosis of, Allah’s Majesty
71:14  Whereas He has created you through diverse conditions
71:15  Have you not seen how Allah has created seven (or many) heavenly spheres corresponding to one another (layer upon layer)
71:16  And He brightened in them the moon and made the sun a radiant lamp (i.e., the source of light and heat)
71:17  And Allah has caused you to grow like vegetation from the earth.
71:18  Then He will return you into the same (earth) and will then bring you forth (from the same again)
71:19  And Allah has made the earth a vast expanse for you
71:20  So that you may move around through its broad ways.
71:21  Nuh (Noah) submitted: ‘O my Lord! They have disobeyed me and kept following that (class of the rebellious rich) whose wealth and children have not increased for them anything but loss
71:22  And they kept perpetrating huge frauds (to keep the common man in error)
71:23  And they kept saying: Do not turn away from your gods and never abandon (the idols named as) Wadd, Suwa‘, Yaghuth, Ya‘uq and Nasr (as well)
71:24  And truly, they have misled many people. So, (O my Lord,) do not increase these wrongdoers (in anything) except misguidance.
71:25  (In the end) they were drowned due to their sins and then flung into Fire. So they could not find any helper for themselves against Allah
71:26  And Nuh (Noah) submitted: ‘O my Lord! Do not leave even a single disbeliever living on earth
71:27  Surely, if You leave them (alive), they will keep leading your servants astray and will beget none but the most wicked and extremely disbelieving children
71:28  O my Lord! Forgive me and my parents and everyone who enters my home as a believer and (all) the believing men and the believing women, and do not increase anything for the wrongdoers except destruction.
