We had sent Nuh to his people, (saying), “Warn your people before a painful punishment comes on them.”
He said, “O my people ! I am a clear warner to you:
that you should serve (worship) Allah and fear Him and obey me,
He will (for give and) protect you from your sins and give you time till an appointed term. When the term of Allah comes (to an end), it will certainly not be postponed, had you but known.”
He said, “My Fosterer! I invited my people (towards You) night and day
but my invitation did not increase in them anything except running away (from the truth).
And whenever I invited them that You will protectively forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears and covered, themselves with garments and persisted (in refusing) and considered themselves great (due to) pride.
Then I invited them aloud,
then I invited them publicly and secretly in private,
then I said: Seek protective forgiveness of your Fosterer, He is certainly Protectively Forgiving,
He will send on you abundant rain from the sky,
and will help you with wealth and sons and He will make gardens for you and He will make rivers for you.
What is (wrong) with you, do you not expect Allah to be serious (about the above promises)?
And He has created you (through) different stages.
Did you not consider how Allah created the seven skies (higher levels) in accordance with each other,
and made the moon therein (a source of reflected) light and made the sun a lamp?
And Allah caused you to grow from the earth (as a) growth,
then He returns you into it and He will bring you out, a bringing out.
And Allah has made the earth a wide expanse for you,
that you may move therein on wide ways.”
Nuh said, “My Fosterer, they disobeyed me, and followed him whose wealth and children added to him nothing but loss.
And they planned a great plan.
And they said: Do not leave your gods, nor leave Wadd, nor Suwa nor Yagus and Yauq and Nasr* *Names of false gods (deities)
And they have misled many, and You do not (give) increase to the unjust persons in anything but error.”
They were drowned because of their faults, then made to enter the fire, and they did not find for themselves any helpers besides Allah.
And Nuh said, “My Fosterer! do not leave on the earth any dweller from among the infidels,
for if you leave them they will mislead your servants and they will not give birth to any but transgressing, ungrateful (children).
My Fosterer ! protectively forgive me and my parents and him who enters my house as a believer, and the believing men and the believing women and do not (give) increase to the unjust persons, in anything but ruin.”
