In The Name Of Allah The Entirely Merciful The Especially Merciful
71:1 Indeed, We sent Noah to his people, [saying], "Warn your people before there comes to them a painful punishment."
71:2 He said, "O my people, indeed I am to you a clear warner,
71:3 [Saying], 'Worship Allah , fear Him and obey me.
71:4 Allah will forgive you of your sins and delay you for a specified term. Indeed, the time [set by] Allah , when it comes, will not be delayed, if you only knew.' "
71:5 He said, "My Lord, indeed I invited my people [to truth] night and day.
71:6 But my invitation increased them not except in flight.
71:7 And indeed, every time I invited them that You may forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears, covered themselves with their garments, persisted, and were arrogant with [great] arrogance.
71:8 Then I invited them publicly.
71:9 Then I announced to them and [also] confided to them secretly
71:10 And said, 'Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver.
71:11 He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers
71:12 And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers.
71:13 What is [the matter] with you that you do not attribute to Allah [due] grandeur
71:14 While He has created you in stages?
71:15 Do you not consider how Allah has created seven heavens in layers
71:16 And made the moon therein a [reflected] light and made the sun a burning lamp?
71:17 And Allah has caused you to grow from the earth a [progressive] growth.
71:18 Then He will return you into it and extract you [another] extraction.
71:19 And Allah has made for you the earth an expanse
71:20 That you may follow therein roads of passage.' "
71:21 Noah said, "My Lord, indeed they have disobeyed me and followed him whose wealth and children will not increase him except in loss.
71:22 And they conspired an immense conspiracy.
71:23 And said, 'Never leave your gods and never leave Wadd or Suwa' or Yaghuth and Ya'uq and Nasr.
71:24 And already they have misled many. And, [my Lord], do not increase the wrongdoers except in error."
71:25 Because of their sins they were drowned and put into the Fire, and they found not for themselves besides Allah [any] helpers.
71:26 And Noah said, "My Lord, do not leave upon the earth from among the disbelievers an inhabitant.
71:27 Indeed, if You leave them, they will mislead Your servants and not beget except [every] wicked one and [confirmed] disbeliever.
71:28 My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my house a believer and the believing men and believing women. And do not increase the wrongdoers except in destruction."
