71:2  (Noah) said, “O my people, I am an explicit and open advisor to you.
71:3  “[This is] so you may worship and revere Allah and obey me [as His servant].
71:4  “He will forgive you for your sins and give you respite for a definite term. When a decided term is completed by Allah, it cannot be delayed, if you only knew.”
71:5  (Noah) said, “O my Lord, I have called to my people day and night.
71:6  “But my call only increases their flight.

71:8  “I have called to them aloud.

71:12  “‘[He will] increase your wealth and sons, and bestow on you gardens and running water.
71:13  “‘What is the matter with you that you do not place your hope for kindness and patience in Allah?

71:23  “They have said, ‘Do not forsake your gods. Do not forsake [your gods] Wadd or Suwa or Yaghuth or Ya’uq or Nasr.’
71:24  “They have already misled many. Do not grant any increase to the sinners except in sin.”

71:26  Noah said, “O my Lord, do not leave a single one of the unbelievers on earth.
