Juz 18
We sent Noah to his people. He said: "O my people, worship God, for you have no other god but He. Will you not take heed for yourselves?" (23) The chiefs of the unbelievers said to the others, "He is a mere mortal like you. He wants only to be superior to you. Had God wanted He would have sent the angels (instead of him). We have never heard from our fathers anything like what he says. (24) He is only a man possessed; so wait and watch him for a time." (25) [Nuh (Noah)] said: "O my Lord! Help me because they deny me." (26) Then We inspired in him, saying: Make the ship under Our eyes and Our inspiration. Then, when Our command cometh and the oven gusheth water, introduce therein of every (kind) two spouses, and thy household save him thereof against whom the Word hath already gone forth. And plead not with Me on behalf of those who have done wrong. Lo! they will be drowned. (27) And then when you and those accompanying you are firmly seated in the Ark, say: "Thanks be to Allah Who has delivered us from the wrong-doing people." (28) and say, 'My Lord, let me land with Your blessing in a blessed landing place. You alone can provide the best landings.'" (29) In this story there is enough evidence (of the Truth); thus do We try (mankind) (30) Then We raised another generation after them, (31) So We sent among them a Noble Messenger from among them (saying), “Worship Allah, you do not have any other God except Him; so do you not fear?” (32)
