We sent Noah to his people, [saying], "Warn your people before a painful punishment comes to them."
He said, "My people, I am coming to you with clear warnings,
Worship God, be mindful of Him and obey me.
God will forgive you of your sins, and reprieve you until an appointed time. When God's appointed time arrives it cannot be postponed, if you only knew.' "
He said, "My Lord, I invited my people night and day.
but the more I called them, the further they ran away:
Every time I called them to Your forgiveness, they put their fingers into their ears, wrapped themselves in their garments, and insisted, and became increasingly more arrogant.
I invited them openly.
Then I appealed to them publicly, and I spoke to them privately,
and said, 'Ask forgiveness of your Lord. He is ever forgiving.
He will send down abundant rain from the sky for you
and will provide you with wealth and children and He will give you gardens and rivers.
What is the matter with you? Why can't you appreciate God's majesty
when He has created you stage by stage?
Do you not see how God created seven superimposed heavens
and placed the moon in them as a enlightenment and He made the sun a source of light?
God germinated you from the earth like plants.
Then He will return you into it, and will bring you out again.
And God has spread the earth out for you
that you may travel its valleys as roadways.' "
Noah said, "My Lord, they have defied me, and followed those whose wealth and children lead them increasingly into loss.
And they schemed outrageously.
And said, 'Do not abandon your gods. Never leave Wadd or Suwa' or Yaghuth and Ya'uq and Nasr.
They have already misled many. My Lord, increase these transgressors only in misguidance."
Because of their sins they were drowned and sent to Hell. They could not find any one to help them against God.
And Noah said, "My Lord, do not leave a single unbeliever on the face of the earth.
If You leave them, they will mislead Your worshipers and breed only wicked unbelievers.
My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my house as a believer. Forgive all the believing men and women, but bring nothing but ruin down on the transgressors.
