71: Nuh (نوح)
1: Surely We sent Nuh to his people, saying: Warn your people before there come upon them a painful chastisement.
2: He said: O my people! Surely I am a plain warner to you:
3: That you should serve Allah and be careful of (your duty to) Him and obey me:
4: He will forgive you some of your faults and grant you a delay to an appointed term; surely the term of Allah when it comes is not postponed; did you but know!
5: He said: O my Lord! surely I have called my people by night and by day!
6: But my call has only made them flee the more:
7: And whenever I have called them that Thou mayest forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears, cover themselves with their garments, and persist and are puffed up with pride:
8: Then surely I called to them aloud:
9: Then surely I spoke to them in public and I spoke to them in secret:
10: Then I said, Ask forgiveness of your Lord, surely He is the most Forgiving:
11: He will send down upon you the cloud, pouring down abundance of rain:
12: And help you with wealth and sons, and make for you gardens, and make for you rivers.
13: What is the matter with you that you fear not the greatness of Allah?
14: And indeed He has created you through various grades:
15: Do you not see how Allah has created the seven heavens, one above another,
16: And made the moon therein a light, and made the sun a lamp?
17: And Allah has made you grow out of the earth as a growth:
18: Then He returns you to it, then will He bring you forth a (new) bringing forth:
19: And Allah has made for you the earth a wide expanse,
20: That you may go along therein in wide paths.
21: Nuh said: My Lord! surely they have disobeyed me and followed him whose wealth and children have added to him nothing but loss.
22: And they have planned a very great plan.
23: And they say: By no means leave your gods, nor leave Wadd, nor Suwa; nor Yaghus, and Yauq and Nasr.
24: And indeed they have led astray many, and do not increase the unjust in aught but error.
25: Because of their wrongs they were drowned, then made to enter fire, so they did not find any helpers besides Allah.
26: And Nuh said: My Lord! leave not upon the land any dweller from among the unbelievers:
27: For surely if Thou leave them they will lead astray Thy servants, and will not beget any but immoral, ungrateful (children)
28: My Lord! forgive me and my parents and him who enters my house believing, and the believing men and the believing women; and do not increase the unjust in aught but destruction!
