Surely, We sent Noah to his people (saying): “Warn your people before there comes to them a painful punishment.”
He said: “O my people! Surely, I am sent to you as a plain Warner.
That you should worship Allah (alone), be dutiful to Him, and obey me.
(If you do so) He will forgive you of your sins and give you respite for an appointed term. Surely, the term of Allah when it comes, cannot be delayed, if you but knew.”
(After all his efforts were exhausted) he said: “O my Lord! Surely, I have called my people night and day,
but all my calling added nothing but to their flight (from the truth).
Surely! Every time I called to them that Allah might forgive them, they put their fingers into their ears, covered themselves up with their garments, persisted (in their refusal), and magnified themselves in pride.
Surely, I called them openly (aloud),
then surely, I proclaimed to them in public, and I have appealed to them in private,
I said (to them): ‘Ask forgiveness from your Lord; He is Forgiving
He will send the sky (rain) to you in abundance,
help you with increase in wealth and children, bestow on you gardens, and bestow on you rivers.’”
And what is the matter with that you don’t have any hope (from Allah)
and surely He has created you in stages?
Don’t you see how Allah has created the 7 heavens one above another,
and has made the moon as a light in it and made the sun as a lamp?
And Allah has brought you out as a growth from the (dust of) earth
Then He will return you into it (the same earth), and bring you forth (to life again on the Day of Resurrection)?
And Allah has made for you the earth as a wide sprea
so that you may go about in it on broad roads.
Noah said: “My Lord! Surely they have disobeyed me, and followed those whose wealth and children give them no increase but only loss.
They have plotted a mighty plot,
and they have said: ‘Don’t leave your deity, nor shall you leave Wadd, nor Suwa, nor Yaghuth, nor Yauq, nor Nasr (names of the idols).’
Indeed they have led many astray. (O Allah): don’t increase the wrongdoers (in anything) but error.”
Because of their sins they were drowned (in the flood) and were made to enter the fire. They did not find any help for them instead of Allah.
And Noah said: “My Lord! Don’t leave any inhabitant of the disbelievers on the earth!
Surely if You leave them, they will mislead Your servants and they will beget none but wicked disbelievers.
My Lord! Forgive me, and my parents, and those who enter my home as a believer, and all the believing men and women. And You don’t grant increase to the wrongdoers but destruction!”
