Did you notice?
71:1  Verily, We, We sent Nuh to his nation (saying) that: “Warn your nation prior to (the stage) that comes to them a painful torment.”
71:2  He said: “O my nation! Verily, I am unto you a plain warner
71:3  so that you may pay obedience to Allah and remain mindful of Him, and obey me
71:4  He will forgive you of your sins and respite you to an appointed term. Surely, the term specified by Allah — when it has approached — it is not postponed if you had been knowing (these facts).”
71:5  (Nuh) said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! Surely, I have invited my nation (to Your Scripture) night and day
71:6  But my preaching (and propagation) has not increased them except in flight
71:7  And truly I, every time I called them that You may forgive them, they thrust their fingers into their ears, and covered themselves up with their garments and insisted (on their wrong beliefs) and behaved with pride in arrogance, patronising seriously arrogant pride
71:8  Afterwards, surely I,I invited them with full force
71:9  Then surely I, I proclaimed to them in public, and (also) kept it private to them in secrecy
71:10  so I said (to them) : ask forgiveness from your Nourisher-Sustainer; certainly He is Oft-Forgiving
71:11  He will direct the sky unto you (to behave as one) which rains heavily
71:12  and He would strengthen you with wealth and sons, and would establish for you gardens and set for you rivers
71:13  What (is the matter) with you, you do not expect for Allah an absolute status
71:14  Although, indeed He created you through diverse stages
71:15  Have you not seen how Allah has brought into existence seven (or many) heavens, (having) fields one beyond another
71:16  and has set the moon therein as a light and made the sun (as) a radiant bright light
71:17  And Allah made you grow (initially) from the earth as a growth
71:18  Then He returns you therein, and will take you out in a new appearance (on the Day of Resurrection)
71:19  And Allah has made for you the earth wide spread and levelled
71:20  that you may traverse some of it through tracks, wide and open
71:21  Nuh said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! Surely, they have disobeyed me, and they have followed one: his wealth and his children have not increased him except loss-wise
71:22  And they have devised an stratagem — a mighty plot
71:23  And they have said: ‘you shall not leave your gods; and nor you shall leave Wadd and nor Suwa’; and nor Yagus and Ya‘uq and Nasr.
71:24  And indeed they have led astray many. And grant no increase to the transgressors except straying away (even further).”
71:25  Because of their sins they were drowned; then they were to enter the Fire. Then they did not find for themselves besides Allah, (any of the) helpers
71:26  And Nuh said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! Do not leave (alive) on the (face of the) earth, out of the disbelievers, (any) inhabitant
71:27  Surely You! If You leave them, they will misguide Your Ibad; and they will not beget except a sinner, a disbeliever
71:28  My Nourisher-Sustainer! Grant forgiveness for me and my two parents, and for that who entered my home as a Believer, and for the Believing males and the Believing females (at large). And do not increase the transgressors except destruction-wise.”
