In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Verily We! We sent Nuh unto his people saying: warn thy people ere there come unto them torment afflictive. (1) He said: "O my people, I warn you clearly (2) Worship Allah, and fear Him, and obey me. (3) He will forgive your sins and give you a respite for an appointed time. When the time which God has appointed arrives, none will be able to postpone it. Would that you knew this!" (4) He said: My Lord! Lo! I have called unto my people night and day (5) But my invitation increased them not except in flight. (6) And every time I called them that You may forgive them, they thrust their fingers into their ears, and covered themselves with their garments, and became wayward, and behaved with downright insolence. (7) Then I summoned them openly, (8) and indeed, I spoke to them both publicly and in secret: (9) Then I said, Ask forgiveness of your Lord, surely He is the most Forgiving: (10) He will let loose the sky for you in plenteous rain, (11) And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers. (12) What is the matter with you that you do not want the Greatness of Allah, (13) seeing He created you by stages? (14) See you not how Allah has created the seven heavens one above another, (15) and placed therein the moon as a light and the sun as a torch. (16) "'And Allah has produced you from the earth growing (gradually), (17) And afterward He maketh you return thereto, and He will bring you forth again, a (new) forthbringing. (18) Allah has made the earth a wide expanse for you (19) that thereof you may thread ways, ravines." (20)
