Meaning of Quran

Nuh | Noah

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

[71:1]
We sent Nuh to his people (and said to him): .Warn your people before a painful punishment comes to them..

[71:2]
He said, .O my people, I openly warn you

[71:3]
that you must worship Allah, and fear Him, and obey me,

[71:4]
and Allah will forgive you your sins, and will respite you to an appointed term. Indeed when Allah‘s term comes, it is not
deferred, if you only
know!.

[71:5]
He said, .My Lord, I have called my people night and day,

[71:6]
but my call added only to their flight (from the truth).

[71:7]
Whenever I called them, so that You might forgive them, they put their fingers into their ears, and wrapped their clothes
around themselves, and grew obstinate, and waxed proud in extreme arrogance.

[71:8]
Then I called them loudly,

[71:9]
and then I spoke to them in public and spoke to them in private.

[71:10]
So I said, =Pray to your Lord for your forgiveness,__ Indeed He is Very-Forgiving, __

[71:11]
and He will cause the heavens to rain upon you in abundance,

[71:12]
and will help you with riches and sons, and will cause gardens to grow for you, and cause rivers to flow for you.

[71:13]
What has happened to you that you do not appreciate the Majesty of Allah,

[71:14]
while He has created you in different phases?

[71:15]
Did you not see how Allah has created seven heavens one upon another,

[71:16]
and has made the moon a light therein, and made the sun a lamp?

[71:17]
And Allah has caused you to grow well out of the earth,

[71:18]
then He will send you back into it, and will bring you forth once again.

[71:19]
And Allah has made the earth a spread for you,

[71:20]
so that you may go about its broad ways.‘.

[71:21]
And said Nuh, .My Lord, they disobeyed me, and followed him whose wealth and children added nothing to him but

loss,
[71:22]
and they devised a mighty plot,

[71:23]
and said (to their people), .Never forsake your gods, and never forsake Wadd, nor Suwa=, nor Yaghuth and Ya=uq and
Nasr.

[71:24]
And they have led many astray. And (O my Lord,) let not the wrongdoers progress in anything but deviation from the
right path..

[71:25]
Because of their sins they were drowned, and then admitted into the Fire. So they found no helpers for them besides
Allah.

[71:26]
And said Nuh, .My Lord, do not leave on earth even a single inhabitant (surviving) out of the disbelievers.

[71:27]
If You leave them (surviving), they will lead Your servants astray, and will beget none but a sinful disbeliever.

[71:28]
My Lord, grant pardon to me, and to my parents, and to everyone who enters my home as a believer, and to all the
believing men and believing
women, and do not increase the wrongdoers but in ruin.
