;

1 . Verily We! We sent Nuh Unto his people saying: warn thy people ere there come Unto them torment afflictive.

2 . He said: O my people! verily I am Unto you a warner manifest.

3 . Worship Allah, and fear Him, and obey me.

4 . He will forgive you your sins, and will defer you to an appointed term. Verily the term of Allah when it cometh shall not be deferred, if ye but knew.

5 . He said: my Lord! verily have called my people night and day.

6 . And my calling hath only increased them in fleeing.

7 . And verily so oft as I call them, that Thou mayest forgive them, they place their fingers into their ears, and wrap themselves with their garments, and persist, and are stiff-necked.

8 . Then verily have called Unto them publicly:

9 . Then verily spake Unto them openly, and secretly also I addressed them.

10 . And I said: ask forgiveness of your Lord; verily He is ever Most Forgiving.

11 . He will send the heaven upon you copiously;

12 . And He will add Unto you riches and children and will appoint Unto you gardens and will appoint Unto you rivers.

13 . What aileth you that ye expect not in Allah majesty!

14 . And surely He hath created you by stages.

15 . Behold ye not in what wise Allah hath created seven heavens in storeys.

16 . And hath placed the moon therein for a light, and hath made the sun a lamp?

17 . And Allah hath caused you to grow from the earth as a growth.

18 . And thereafter He will cause you to return thereinto, and He will bring you forth a forthbringing.

19 . And Allah hath made the earth Unto you an expanse.

20 . That of it ye may traverse the ways open.

21 . Nuh said. my Lord! verily they have disobeyed me and followed them whose riches and children have only increased them in loss.

22 . And who have plotted a tremendous plot

23 . And who have said: ye shall not leave your gods; nor Shall ye leave Wadd nor Suwa´, nor Yaghuth, nor Ya´uq nor Nasr.

24 . And surely they have misled many. And increase Thou these wrong-doers in naught save error.

25 . And because of their misdeeds they were drowned, and then they were made to enter a Fire. Then they found not for themselves, beside Allah, any helpers.

26 . And Nuh said: my Lord! leave not upon the earth of the infidels one inhabitant.

27 . Verily if Thou shouldst leave them, they Will mislead Thine bondmen and will beget not save sinning infidels,

28 . My Lord! forgive me and my parents and him who entereth my house as a believer, and believing men and believing women, and increase not the wrong-doers in aught save ruin!
