28 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Bee (Al-nahl) before Abraham (Ibrahim)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
WE SENT NOAH to his people to warn them before the painful punishment came upon them. (1) Noah said, "My people, I am warning you plainly. (2) that you serve Allah and fear Him, and follow me; (3) Allah will forgive you of your sins and delay you for a specified term. Indeed, the time [set by] Allah, when it comes, will not be delayed, if you only knew.' " (4) He said: “My Lord, I called my people by night and by 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) “I then called them openly.” (8) "Then verily, I proclaimed to them in public, and I have appealed to them in private, (9) And said, 'Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver. (10) ‘He will send down abundant rain for you from the sky.’ (11) and will aid you with worldly goods and children, and will bestow upon you gardens, and bestow upon you running waters. (12) What aileth you that ye hope not toward Allah for dignity (13) And indeed He has created you through various grades: (14) Behold ye not in what wise Allah hath created seven heavens in storeys. (15) and has placed the moon in them as a light, and the sun as a radiant lamp? (16) "'And God has caused you to grow out of the earth in [gradual] growth; and thereafter He will return you to it [in death]: (17) and [then] He will bring you forth [from It] in resurrection. (18) And Allah has made for you the earth a wide expanse, (19) That you may go about therein in broad roads. (20)
