Book 71


Nuh

In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[71.1]

Surely We sent Nuh to his people,
saying:
Warn your people before there come upon them a painful chastisement.

[71.2]

He said:
O my people!
Surely I am a plain warner to you:

[71.3]

That you should serve Allah and be careful of (your duty to) Him and obey me:

[71.4]

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!

[71.5]

He said:
O my Lord!
surely I have called my people by night and by day!

[71.6]

But my call has only made them flee the more:

[71.7]

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:

[71.8]

Then surely I called to them aloud:

[71.9]

Then surely I spoke to them in public and I spoke to them in secret:

[71.10]

Then I said,
Ask forgiveness of your Lord,
surely He is the most Forgiving:

[71.11]

He will send down upon you the cloud,
pouring down abundance of rain:

[71.12]

And help you with wealth and sons,
and make for you gardens,
and make for you rivers.

[71.13]

What is the matter with you that you fear not the greatness of Allah?

[71.14]

And indeed He has created you through various grades:

[71.15]

Do you not see how Allah has created the seven heavens ,
one above another,

[71.16]

And made the moon therein a light,
and made the sun a lamp?

[71.17]

And Allah has made you grow out of the earth as a growth:

[71.18]

Then He returns you to it,
then will He bring you forth a (new) bringing forth:

[71.19]

And Allah has made for you the earth a wide expanse,

[71.20]

That you may go along therein in wide paths.

[71.21]

Nuh said:
My Lord!
surely they have disobeyed me and followed him whose wealth and children have added to him nothing but loss.

[71.22]

And they have planned a very great plan.

[71.23]

And they say:
By no means leave your gods,
nor leave Wadd,
nor Suwa;
nor Yaghus,
and Yauq and Nasr.

[71.24]

And indeed they have led astray many,
and do not increase the unjust in aught but error.

[71.25]

Because of their wrongs they were drowned,
then made to enter fire,
so they did not find any helpers besides Allah.

[71.26]

And Nuh said:
My Lord!
leave not upon the land any dweller from among the unbelievers:

[71.27]

For surely if Thou leave them they will lead astray Thy servants,
and will not beget any but immoral, ungrateful (children)

[71.28]

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!
