28 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Bee (Al-nahl) before Abraham (Ibrahim)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Indeed, We sent Noah to his people, [saying], "Warn your people before there comes to them a painful punishment." (1) Noah said, "My people, I am warning you plainly. (2) That you should serve Allah and be careful of (your duty to) Him and obey me: (3) He will forgive your sins and will grant you respite until an appointed term. Indeed when Allah's appointed term comes, it cannot be deferred; if you only knew!” (4) He said: My Lord! Lo! I have called unto my people night and day (5) but it has had no effect on them except to make them run away. (6) And behold, whenever I called unto them with a view to Thy granting them forgiveness, they put their fingers into their ears, and wrapped themselves up in their garments [of sin]; and grew obstinate, and became [yet more] arrogant in their false pride. (7) Then I called them loudly and more openly, (8) Then verily I spake unto them openly and secretly. I also addressed them. (9) And I told them: 'Ask your Lord to forgive you. He is verily forgiving. (10) He will send the heaven upon you copiously; (11) and will succour you with wealth and sons, and will appoint for you gardens, and will appoint for you rivers. (12) What aileth you that ye hope not toward Allah for dignity (13) ‘Whereas it is He Who created you in different stages?’ (14) Do you not see how God has created the seven heavens one above another, (15) And hath made the moon a light therein, and made the sun a lamp? (16) ‘And it is Allah Who made you grow like vegetation from the earth.’ (17) He will make you return to it and then take you out of it again. (18) God has spread out the earth (19) so that you might walk thereon on spacious paths.'" (20)
