28 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Bee (Al-nahl) before Abraham (Ibrahim)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
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 am to you a Warner, clear and open: (2) (Bidding you): Serve Allah and keep your duty unto Him and obey 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) Noah said, "My Lord, I have been preaching to my people, night and day, (5) but my call has only increased them in running away. (6) And whenever I called them, that Thou mightest forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears, and wrapped them in their garments, and persisted, and waxed very proud. (7) "And behold I called unto them openly; (8) Then I conveyed the message to them, again, both in public and in private, (9) “I therefore told them, ‘Seek forgiveness from your Lord; He is indeed Most Forgiving.’ (10) He will send the heaven upon you copiously; (11) and give to you wealth and sons, and provide you with gardens and rivers. (12) strengthen you by (providing) you wealth and children, and make gardens and streams for you. What is the matter with you that you are not afraid of the greatness of God (13) seeing He created you by stages? (14) See ye not how Allah hath created seven heavens in harmony, (15) And hath made the moon a light therein, and made the sun a lamp? (16) And Allah has brought you forth from the (dust of) earth. [Tafsir At-Tabari, Vol. 29, Page 97]. (17) Afterwards He will return you into it (the earth), and bring you forth (again on the Day of Resurrection)? (18) And Allah has made for you the earth a wide expanse, (19) So that you may walk upon its spacious paths.' (20)
