071. Noah – Nooh

He said: O my people! Surely I am a plain warner to you:
That you should serve Allah and be careful of (your duty to) Him and obey me:
He said: O my Lord! surely I have called my people by night and by day!
Then surely I called to them aloud:
Then surely I spoke to them in public and I spoke to them in secret:
Then I said, Ask forgiveness of your Lord, surely He is the most Forgiving:
He will send down upon you the cloud, pouring down abundance of rain:
What is the matter with you that you fear not the greatness of Allah?
And indeed He has created you through various grades:
Do you not see how Allah has created the seven heavens, one above another,
And Allah has made you grow out of the earth as a growth:
Then He returns you to it, then will He bring you forth a (new) bringing forth:
And Allah has made for you the earth a wide expanse,
That you may go along therein in wide paths.
Nuh said: My Lord! surely they have disobeyed me and followed him whose wealth and children have added to him nothing but loss.
And they have planned a very great plan.
And indeed they have led astray many, and do not increase the unjust in aught but error.
And Nuh said: My Lord! leave not upon the land any dweller from among the unbelievers:
For surely if Thou leave them they will lead astray Thy servants, and will not beget any but immoral, ungrateful (children)
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!
