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!
