28 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Bee (Al-nahl) before Abraham (Ibrahim)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
We sent Noah to his People (with the Command): "Do thou warn thy People before there comes to them a grievous Penalty." (1) He said, “O my people! I am indeed a Herald of clear warnings to you.” (2) saying, "Serve God, and fear Him, and obey you me, (3) so that He may forgive you some of your sins, and grant you respite until a term known [to Him alone]: but, behold, when the term appointed by God does come, it can never be put back - if you but knew it!" (4) He said, "My Lord, indeed I invited my people [to truth] night and day. (5) But my call has only made them flee the more: (6) "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. (7) I called to them clearly, (8) Then I announced to them and [also] confided to them secretly (9) "I said (to them): 'Ask forgiveness from your Lord; Verily, He is Oft-Forgiving; (10) and He will loose heaven upon you in torrents (11) and will succour you with wealth and sons, and will appoint for you gardens, and will appoint for you rivers. (12) What is [the matter] with you that you do not attribute to Allah [due] grandeur (13) While He has created you in (different) stages [i.e. first Nutfah, then 'Alaqah and then Mudghah, see (VV. 23:13, 14) the Quran]. (14) See you not how Allah has created the seven heavens one above another, (15) setting in them the moon as a light and the sun as a lantern? (16) Allah has caused you to grow out of the earth, (17) And thereafter He will cause you to return thereinto, and He will bring you forth a forthbringing. (18) And Allah has made for you the earth wide spread (an expanse). (19) that thereof you may thread ways, ravines." (20)
