71:1  SENT NOAH to his people to warn them before the painful punishment came upon them
71:2  He said: "O my people, I warn you clearl
71:3  That you should worship God and fear Him, and follow m
71:4  That He may forgive some of your sins and prolong your term till an appointed time. Surely when God's appointed time is come it will not be put off, if only you knew
71:5  He said: "O Lord, I called my people night and day
71:6  But the more I called, they only ran the farther away
71:7  And every time I called them that You may forgive them, they thrust their fingers into their ears, and covered themselves with their garments, and became wayward, and behaved with downright insolence
71:8  Then I called them loudly and more openly
71:9  And declared to them in public and in private
71:10  And I told them: 'Ask your Lord to forgive you. He is verily forgiving
71:11  He will send you abundant rain from the sky
71:12  And will give you increase of wealth and sons, and give you gardens and springs of water
71:13  What has come upon you that you do not fear the majesty of God
71:14  Knowing that He has created you by various stages
71:15  Do you not see how God has fashioned seven skies one above the other
71:16  And has placed the moon therein, an illumination, and has placed the sun, a lighted lamp
71:17  God produced you from the earth like a vegetable growth
71:18  He will then return you back to it, and bring you out again
71:19  God has made the earth for you a spreading
71:20  So that you may walk upon its spacious paths.
71:21  But they did not listen to me," Noah said, "and followed him whose wealth and children only added to his ruin
71:22  And they contrived a plot of great magnitude
71:23  And said: 'Do not abandon your gods, and do not abandon Wadda or Suwa', or Yaghuth, Ya'uq or Nasr.
71:24  And they misled many. So do not give the evil-doers increase but in error
71:25  They were drowned because of their habitual sinfulness, and sent to Hell, and did not find any helper other than God
71:26  Noah said: "O Lord, do not leave a single habitation of unbelievers on the earth
71:27  If you leave them, they will lead Your creatures astray, and beget but iniquitous and ungrateful offspring
71:28  O Lord, forgive me, my parents, and any one who enters my house as a believer, and all believing men and women, and do not give the evil-doers increase save in ruin
