In the Name
of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Surely We sent Nuh to his people, saying: Warn your people before there come upon them a
said: O my people! Surely I am a plain warner to you:
you should serve Allah and be careful of (your duty to) Him and obey me:
will forgive you some of your faults and grant you a delay to an appointed term; surely
the term of Allah when it comes is not postponed; did you but know!
said: O my Lord! surely I have called my people by night and by day!
my call has only made them flee the more:
whenever I have called them that Thou may forgive them, they put their fingers in their
ears, cover themselves with their garments, and persist and are puffed up with pride:
surely I called to them aloud:
surely I spoke to them in public and I spoke to them in secret:
I said, Ask forgiveness of your Lord, surely He is the most Forgiving:
will send down upon you the cloud, pouring down abundance of rain:
help you with wealth and sons, and make for you gardens, and make for you rivers.
is the matter with you that you fear not the greatness of Allah?
indeed He has created you through various grades:
you not see how Allah has created the seven heavens one above another,
made the moon therein a light, and made the sun a lamp?
Allah has made you grow out of the earth as a growth:
He returns you to it, then will He bring you forth a (new) bringing forth:
Allah has made for you the earth a wide expanse,
you may go along therein in wide paths.
said: My Lord! surely they have disobeyed me and followed him whose wealth and children
have added to him nothing but loss.
they have planned a very great plan.
they say: By no means leave your gods, nor leave Wadd, nor Suwa; nor Yaghus, and Yauq and
indeed they have led astray many, and do not increase the unjust in aught but error.
Because of their wrongs they were drowned, then made to enter fire, so they did not find
any helpers besides Allah.
Nuh said: My Lord! leave not upon the land any dweller from among the unbelievers:
surely if Thou leave them they will lead astray Thy servants, and will not beget any but
immoral, ungrateful (children);
Lord! forgive me and my parents and him who enters my house believing, and the believing
men and the believing women; and do not increase the unjust in aught but destruction!
