Nooh (Nûh)

In the name of Allah, Gracious, Merciful.

1We sent Noah to his people: “Warn your people before there comes to them a grievous penalty.”

2He said: “O my people! I am to you a warner clear and open:

3“That you should worship Allah, fear Him and obey me:

4“So He may forgive you your sins and give you respite for a stated term: For when the term given by Allah is accomplished, it cannot be put forward: if you only knew.”

5He said: “O my Lord! I have called to my people night and day:

6“But my call only increases their flight from the right.”

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

1Inna arsalna Nuhan ila qaumilhi an anzir qaumaka min qabil ayatiyahum azabun alim

2Qala ya qaumi inni lakum nazirum mubin

3Anibudul laha wat taquhu wa atiun

4Yagfir lakum minzunubikum wa yuakhirkum ila ajalim musama inna ajalal lahi iza ja a la yuakhar lau kuntum talamun

5Qala rabbi inni daautu qaumi lai law wa nahara

6Falam yazidhum duai illa firara

[Commentary continues below.]

7“And every time I have called to them that you might forgive them, they have thrust their fingers into their ears, covered themselves up with their garments, grown obstinate, and given themselves up to arrogance.

8“So I have called to them aloud;

9“Further, I have spoken to them in public and secretly in private.

10“Saying Ask forgiveness from your Lord; for He is often forgiving;

11He will send rain to you in abundance;

12And give you increase in wealth and sons; and bestow on you gardens and bestow on you rivers.

13“What is the matter with you that you place not your hope for kindness and long suffering in Allah

14“And seeing that it is He that has created you in diverse stages?

7Wa inni kullama daautuhum litagfira lahum jaalu ashabiahum fi azanihim wastagsau siyabahum wa ashar ru wastakbarus tikbara

8Summa inni daautuhum jihara

9Summa inni alantu lahum wa asrartu lahum israra

10Faqultus tagfiru rabbakum innahu kana gafara

11Yursilis samaa alaikum midrara

12Wa yumdidkum bi amwali wa banina wa yajal lakum jan nati wa yaj al lakum anhara

13Ma lakum la tarjuna lillahi wa qara

14Wa qad kalaqakum atwara

[Commentary continues below.]

15“See not how Allah has created the seven heavens, one above another.

16And made the moon a light in their midst, and made the sun as a lamp?

17And Allah has produced you from the earth growing gradually.

18And in the end He will return you into the earth and raise you forth?

19And Allah has made the earth for you as a carpet.

20That you may go about therein in spacious roads.’

21Noah said: “O my Lord! they have disobeyed me but they follow men whose wealth and children give them no increase but only loss.

22And they have devised a tremendous plot.

15Alam tarau kaifa halaqal lahu saba samawatin tibaqa

16Wa jaalal qamara fihina nuraw wa jaalas samsa siraja

17Wallahu ambatakum minalardi nabata

18Summa yuidukum fiha wa yukrijukum ikhraja

19Wallahu jaala lakumul arda bisata

20Litasluku minha subulan fijaja

21Qala Nuhur rabbi innahum ashauni wa tabau malam yazid hu maluhu wa waladuhu illa hasara

22Wa makaru makran kubbara

[Commentary continues below.]

23And they have said to each other, “abandon not your gods; abandon neither Wadd nor Suwa neither Yaguth nor Yauq nor Nasr.”1

24They have already misled many; and grant you no increase to the wrongdoers but in straying.

25Because of their sins they were drowned and were made to enter the fire: and they found in lieu of Allah none to help them.2

26And Noah said: “O my Lord! Leave not of the unbelievers a single one on earth!3

27“For if You do leave them, they will but mislead Your devotees and they will breed none but wicked ungrateful ones.

28“O my Lord! Forgive me my parents all who enter my house in faith and believing men and believing women: and to the wrongdoers grant no increase but in perdition!”4

23Wa qalu la tadzarun na alaihatakum wa la tadzarun na wad daw wa la suwaaw wa la yagutsa wa yauqa wa nasra

24Wa qad adallu kasira wa la tazidih zalimina illa dalala

25Mim ma kati atihim ugriqu faudhilu naran falam yajidu lahum min dunillahi ansara

26Wa qala Nuhur rabbi la tazar alal ardi minal kafirina day yara

27Innaka in tazarhum yudhil lu ibadaka wa la yalidu illa fajiran kafara

28Rabigfirli wa liwaliday ya waliman dakhala baitiya mumina wa lil muminina walmuminat wa la tazidih zalimina ai la tabara

1. These Arabians idols are mentioned by Muhammad as if they were Antediluvian idols. They were idols of the Noahic period as Allah wants us to believe here.

 

 

2. The people of Noah suffered the deluge, but not the fire yet. The fire is reserved by God for all sinners after the Antichrist has been revealed and after the Day of Judgment. 

3. Noah, a righteous man, did not at any time say a prayer as that. He only did what the Lord God Almighty told him to do, which was to build an Ark for the salvation of the world of animal and human life. Genesis 6-11 chronicles the word of God Almighty and Noah’s obedience.

4. It was God’s decision to destroy the world because of the increase in sin and wickedness. Genesis 6:5-9 reads:

The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.

So the LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them." But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD. These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God.
