We did indeed send Noah to his people: "Warn your people before a painful punishment afflicts them!"
He said, "O my people! I am indeed sent to give you a plain warning"
"That you should worship Allah, and fear Him, and obey me!"
"HE will forgive you some of your sins, and give you respite till an appointed time. When the Allah appointed time comes, it cannot be deferred, if only you knew!"
[Noah later] said, "My Lord! I have indeed preached to my people night and day."
"My preaching however has only drove them farther away!"
"And, indeed, whenever I preached to them [to come to the Right Path] so that You might forgive them, they put their fingers into their ears, covered themselves up in their garments, grew obstinate, and became arrogant with false pride."
"And I did indeed preach to them loud and clear."
"And then I spoke to them in public; and I confided to them privately."
"And I said, `Ask your Lord to forgive you. He is indeed most forgiving!'"
"`He will make the sky pour rain on you in abundance.'"
"`And He will help you with wealth and children, and will make gardens for you, and will generate rivers for you.'"
What is the matter with you that you do not attribute Grandeur to Allah
And He has surely created you [mankind] of diverse sorts and conditions
Do you not see how Allah has created seven heavens one over another?
And He has made within these, the moon a light [reflected], and the sun, a [radiant] lamp
And Allah has grown you from the earth like a plant.
Thereafter He will restore you to it [when you die]. And He will bring you out in resurrection
And Allah has made the earth spread out for you
So that you might thread thereon a network of spacious paths
Noah said, "My Lord! They have disobeyed me all along, and they follow one whose wealth and children increase nothing but their loss."
"And they plotted a great plot!"
And they told [their followers], "Abandon not your gods: abandon not Wadd, Suwa', Yaghuth, Ya'uq or Nasr!"
"And they have verily led many astray. And [O Allah] increase nothing but their delusion for these wicked people!"
They [those wicked persons] were drowned because of their sins, and are doomed to enter the Fire [in the Hereafter]. And they found none to help them against Allah
And Noah prayed, "My Lord! Leave not any of those who suppress the Truth to inhabit on the earth."
"If You do indeed leave them, they will lead those who worship You astray, and will give birth to none but wicked and ingrate progeny."
"My Lord! Grant forgiveness to me, to my parents, to everyone who enters my house as a believer, and to all believing men and women. And grant increase in nothing buttheir destruction for the wicked people!"
