Noah (Noah)
28 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Bee (Al-nahl) before Abraham (Ibrahim)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
We sent Noah to his nation, saying: 'Give warning to your nation before a painful punishment overtakes them' (1) He said: O my people! Lo! I am a plain warner unto you (2) that you should worship God [alone] and be conscious of Him. "Now do pay heed unto me, (3) That He may forgive you somewhat of your sins and respite you to an appointed term. Lo! the term of Allah, when it cometh, cannot be delayed, if ye but knew. (4) He said: my Lord! Verily I have called my people night and day. (5) "But my call only increases (their) flight (from the Right). (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) Then I summoned them openly, (8) Then surely I spoke to them in public and I spoke to them in secret: (9) And I have said: Seek pardon of your Lord. Lo! He was ever Forgiving. (10) and He will loose heaven upon you in torrents (11) and will aid you with worldly goods and children, and will bestow upon you gardens, and bestow upon you running waters. (12) What is the matter with you that you do not want the Greatness of Allah, (13) seeing that He has created [every one of] you in successive stages? (14) Do you not consider how Allah has created seven heavens in layers (15) and set the moon therein for a light and the sun for a lamp? (16) And Allah has made you grow out of the earth as a growth: (17) Afterwards He will return you into it (the earth), and bring you forth (again on the Day of Resurrection)? (18) ‘And it is Allah Who made the earth a bed for you.’ (19) "'That ye may go about therein, in spacious roads.'" (20)
