Indeed, We sent Nuh to his people with a message: “Warn your people before a painful punishment comes to them.”
He told them, “My people! I am a clear warner to you,
so worship Allah, be mindful of Him and obey me,
then He will forgive your sins and spare you until your appointed time. When Allah’s deadline comes, it cannot be delayed, I wish you understood.
He prayed: “My Lord, I called my people day and night,
my calling has only increased them in fleeing further and further away.
Each time I invited them to Your forgiveness, they put their fingers into their ears, covered themselves up with their garments, persisted in their
disbelief and were thoroughly arrogant.
I invited them openly,
then in public, and in private with the utmost discretion
I told them, ‘Seek your Lord’s forgiveness; He is Most Forgiving
He will send plenty of rain for you from the sky,
and bless you with wealth, children, provide for you gardens, and provide for you rivers.
What’s the matter with you that you don’t fear the Majesty of Allah?
Yet He created you in stages.
Haven’t you considered how Allah created the Seven Heavens one above the other?
He placed the moon as a light, and the sun as a lamp.
Allah produced you from the Earth like
then He will return you to it, and will bring you out from it.
And Allah spread out the Earth for you,
so you may travel over its broad paths and valleys.’
Eventually Nuh prayed: “My Lord, they disobeyed me and followed those whose wealth and children increased them in loss.
They devised a scheme of great magnitude:
they tell them, ‘Don’t abandon your gods and don’t abandon Wadd, Suwa’, Yaghuth, Ya‘uq or Nasr.’
They have misled many; My Lord, do not increase the wicked except from going further and further astray from the Truth.”
Due to their sins, they were drowned and then thrown into Hell; they couldn’t find any helper for them against Allah.
Nuh prayed: “My Lord, don’t leave any disbelievers on Earth;
if you left them, they will misguide Your servants, and breed more wicked disbelievers.
My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my house as a believer, believing men and women. Don’t increase the wicked except in utter destruction.
