And indeed We sent Nooh towards his people he therefore said, “O my people! Worship Allah, you do not have any other God except Him; so do you not fear?” (23) But the great ones among his people, who refused to acknowledge the truth, replied: "This [man] is nothing but a mortal like yourselves who wants to make himself superior to you! For, if God had willed [to convey a message unto us,] He would surely have sent down angels; [moreover,] we have never heard [anything like] this from our forebears of old! (24) He is only an insane person. Wait for some time. Perhaps he will come to his senses." (25) [Nuh (Noah)] said: "O my Lord! Help me because they deny me." (26) Then We said to him, 'Make thou the Ark under Our eyes and as We reveal, and then, when Our command comes and the Oven boils, insert in it two of every kind and thy, family -- except for him against whom the word already has been spoken; and address Me not concerning those who have done evil; they shall be drowned. (27) Then, when thou art seated in the Ark and those with thee, say, "Praise belongs to God, who has delivered us from the people of the evildoers." (28) And say, 'My Lord, let me land at a blessed landing place, and You are the best to accommodate [us].' " (29) There were surely signs in this; We will surely put you to the test. (30) Then, after them, We brought forth another generation; (31) And we sent among them a messenger of their own, saying: Serve Allah, Ye have no other Allah save Him. Will ye not ward off (evil)?
