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 People (with the Command): "Do thou warn thy People before there comes to them a grievous Penalty." (1) He said, 'O my people, I am unto you a clear warner, (2) that you should worship God [alone] and be conscious of Him. "Now do pay heed unto me, (3) He will forgive your sins and will grant you respite till an appointed time. When the time appointed by God arrives, it cannot be postponed, if you only knew." (4) He said, “My Lord! I invited my people night and day.” (5) "But all my calling added nothing but to (their) flight (from the truth). (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 called to them clearly, (8) Then I conveyed the message to them, again, both in public and in private, (9) and told them, "Ask forgiveness from your Lord; He is All-forgiving". (10) He will shower upon you heavenly blessings abundant, (11) And help you with wealth and sons, and make for you gardens, and make for you rivers. (12) ‘What is the matter with you, that you do not desire honour from Allah?’ (13) ‘Whereas it is He Who created you in different stages?’ (14) Have you not seen how Allah created the seven heavens one above the other, (15) and has placed the moon in them as a light, and the sun as a radiant lamp? (16) And Allah has caused you to grow from the earth a [progressive] growth. (17) and He will later cause you to return to it and will then again bring you out of it. (18) God has made the earth for you a spreading, (19) "'That ye may go about therein, in spacious roads.'" (20)
