071 Nuh

 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

 1. Surely We sent Nuh to his people, saying: Warn your 
 people before there come upon them a painful chastisement.

 2. He said: O my people! Surely I am a plain warner to you:

 3. That you should serve Allah and be careful of (your duty 
 to) Him and obey me:

 4. He will forgive you some of your faults and grant you a 
 delay to an appointed term; surely the term of Allah when it 
 comes is not postponed; did you but know!

 S. He said: O my Lord! surely I have called my people by 
 night and by day!

 6. But my call has only made them flee the more:

 9. Then surely I spoke to them in public and I spoke to them 
 in secret:

 23. And they say: By no means leave your gods, nor leave 
 Wadd, nor Suwa; nor Yaghus, and Yauq and Nasr.

 24. And indeed they have led astray many, and do not 
 increase the unjust in aught but error.

 25. Because of their wrongs they were drowned, then made to 
 enter fire, so they did not find any helpers besides Allah.

 26. And Nuh said: My Lord! leave not upon the land any

 27. For surely if Thou leave them they will lead astray Thy
