28 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Bee (Al-nahl) before Abraham (Ibrahim)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
We sent Noah to his people (and directed him): “Warn your people before a grievous chastisement comes upon them.” (1) He said: O my people! Surely I am a plain warner to you: (2) "That ye should worship Allah, fear 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! Verily I have called my people night and day. (5) But my invitation increased them not except in flight. (6) Every time I have called to them, so that You might 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) And lo! I have called unto them aloud, (8) Then I announced to them and [also] confided to them secretly (9) "Ask for forgiveness of your Lord," I said. "Surely, He is the Forgiver. (10) He will shower upon you heavenly blessings abundant, (11) And He will add unto you riches and children and will appoint unto you gardens and will appoint unto you rivers. (12) "'What is amiss with you that you cannot look forward to God's majesty, (13) When He created you by (divers) stages? (14) Do you not see how Allah has created seven heavens, one upon the other, (15) and has placed the moon in them as a light, and the sun as a radiant lamp? (16) And Allah hath caused you to grow from the earth as a growth. (17) and [then] He will bring you forth [from It] in resurrection. (18) God has made the earth for you a spreading, (19) That of it ye may traverse the ways open. (20)
