We sent Noah to his people: “Warn your people before a grievous penalty comes to them.”
(Noah) said, “O my people, I am an explicit and open advisor to you.
“[This is] so you may worship and revere Allah and obey me [as His servant].
“He will forgive you for your sins and give you respite for a definite term. When a decided term is completed by Allah, it cannot be delayed, if you only knew.”
(Noah) said, “O my Lord, I have called to my people day and night.
“But my call only increases their flight.
“Every time I have called to them so You might forgive them, they have thrust their fingers into their ears. [They have] pulled their garments over themselves, become obstinate, and acquired arrogance.
“I have called to them aloud.
“I have spoken to them publicly and privately.
“(I have said), ‘Ask forgiveness from your Lord, for He is Most Forgiving.
“‘He will send rain abundantly.
“‘[He will] increase your wealth and sons, and bestow on you gardens and running water.
“‘What is the matter with you that you do not place your hope for kindness and patience in Allah?
“‘Indeed, He created you in stages.
“‘Can’t you see that Allah has created the seven layers of skies?
“‘[Can’t you see that He] made the moon a light in their midst and made the sun as a lamp?
“‘Allah has made you from earth, developing.
“‘In the finale, He will return you to it and raise you again.
“‘Allah has made the earth like a carpet for you.
“‘[This] so you may travel on it on wide roads.’”
Noah said, “O my Lord, they have disobeyed me. They follow those whose wealth and children give them no gain but only loss.
“They have devised a big plot.
“They have said, ‘Do not forsake your gods. Do not forsake [your gods] Wadd or Suwa or Yaghuth or Ya’uq or Nasr.’
“They have already misled many. Do not grant any increase to the sinners except in sin.”
It is because of their sins they were drowned and made to enter the fire. They found that, other than Allah, there was no one to help them.
Noah said, “O my Lord, do not leave a single one of the unbelievers on earth.
“If You leave them, they will only mislead your servants. They will breed only immoral, ungrateful ones.
“O my Lord, forgive me, my parents, all who enter my house in faith, believing men, and believing women. To the sinners, grant no increase except in punishment.”
