71:1  WE SENT forth Noah to his people, saying: ‘Give warning to your people before a woeful scourge overtakes them.‘
71:2  He said: ‘My people, I come to warn you clearly
71:3  Worship God and fear Him, and obey me
71:4  He will forgive you some of your sins and give you respite to an appointed time. When God‘s time is come, none shall put it back. Would you but knew!‘
71:5  Lord,‘ said Noah, ‘night and day have I pleaded with my people
71:6  but my pleas have only aggravated their aversion
71:7  Each time I call on them to seek Your pardon, they thrust their fingers into their ears and draw their cloaks over their heads, persisting in sin and bearing themselves with insolent pride
71:8  Then I called out loud to them
71:9  and appealed to them in public and in private
71:10  "Seek forgiveness of your Lord," I said. "He is ever ready to forgive
71:11  He sends down abundant water from the sky for you and bestows upon you wealth and children
71:12  He has provided you with gardens and with running brooks
71:13  Why do you deny the greatness of Go
71:14  when He created you in gradual stages
71:15  Can you not see how God created the seven heavens one above the other,
71:16  placing in them the moon for a light and the sun for a lantern
71:17  God has brought you forth from the earth like a plant
71:18  and to the earth He will restore you. Then He will bring you back from it afresh
71:19  And God has made the earth a vast expanse for you
71:20  that you may roam its spacious paths."‘
71:21  And Noah said: ‘Lord, they disobey me, and follow those whose wealth and offspring will only hasten their perdition
71:22  They have devised an outrageous plot
71:23  and said to each other: "Do not renounce your gods. Do not forsake Wadd or Suwā‘ or Yaghūth or Ya‘ūq or Nasr."¹
71:24  They have led many astray; and You surely drive the wrongdoers to further error.‘
71:25  Because of their sins they were drowned and cast into the Fire. They found none besides God to help them
71:26  And Noah said: ‘Lord, do not leave a single unbeliever on the earth
71:27  If You spare them, they will mislead Your servants and beget none but sinners and unbelievers
71:28  Forgive me, Lord, and forgive my parents and whoever enters my house a true believer. ‘Forgive all the faithful, men and women, and hasten the wrongdoers‘ destruction.‘
