In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Prophet Nuh's preaching and submission to Allah after exhausting all his efforts
1 We sent Noah to his People (with the Command): "Do thou warn thy people before there comes to them a grievous Penalty." 5705
2 He said: "O my People! I am to you a Warner clear and open: 5706
3 "That ye should worship Allah fear Him and obey me: 5707
4 "So He may forgive you your sins and give you respite for a stated Term: For when the Term given by Allah is accomplished it cannot be put forward: if ye only knew." 5708
5 He said: "O my Lord! I have called to my People night and day:
6 "But my call only increases (their) flight (from the Right)." 5709
7 "And every time I have called to them that thou mightest forgive them they have (only) thrust their fingers into their ears covered themselves up with their garments grown obstinate and given themselves up to arrogance. 5710
8 "So I have called to them aloud;
9 "Further I have spoken to them in public and secretly in private 5711
10 "Saying `Ask forgiveness from your Lord; for He is Oft-Forgiving;
11 "`He will send rain to you in abundance; 5712
12 "`Give you increase in wealth and sons; and bestow on you Gardens and bestow on you Rivers (of flowing water). 5713
13 "`What is the matter with you that ye place not your hope for kindness and long-suffering in Allah
14 "`Seeing that it is He that has created you in diverse stages? 5714
15 "`See ye not how Allah has created the seven heavens one above another 5715
16 "`And made the moon a light in their midst and made the sun as a (Glorious) Lamp? 5716
17 "`And Allah has produced you from the earth growing (gradually) 5717
18 "`And in the End He will return you into the (earth) and raise you forth (again at the Resurrection)?
19 "`And Allah has made the earth for you as a carpet (spread out) 5718
20 "`That ye may go about therein in spacious roads.' " 5719
Prophet Nuh's prayer not to leave any unbeliever on the surface of the earth and Allah granted his wish
21 Noah said: "O my Lord! they have disobeyed me but they follow (men) whose wealth and children give them no Increase but only Loss.
22 "And they have devised a tremendous Plot. 5720
23 "And they have said (to each other) abandon not your gods; abandon neither Wadd nor Suwa neither Yaguth nor Yauq nor Nasr 5721
24 "They have already misled many; and grant Thou no increase to the wrongdoers but in straying (from their mark)." 5722
25 Because of their sins they were drowned (in the flood) and were made to enter the Fire (of Punishment): and they found in lieu of Allah none to help them. 5723
26 And Noah said: "O my Lord! Leave not of the Unbelievers a single one on earth! 5724
27 "For if Thou dost leave (any of) them they will but mislead thy devotees and they will breed none but wicked ungrateful ones.
28 "O my Lord! Forgive me my parents all who enter my house in Faith and (all) believing men and believing women: and to the wrongdoers grant Thou no increase but in Perdition!" 5725 5726
