  Revealed 71st  

71:1
Indeed, We sent Noah to his people, [saying], "Warn your people before there comes to them a painful punishment."

71:2
He said, "O my people, indeed I am to you a clear warner,

71:3
[Saying], 'Worship God, fear Him and obey me.

71:4
God will forgive you of your sins and delay you for a specified term.  Indeed, the time [set by] God, when it comes, will not be delayed, if you only knew.'"

71:5
He said, "My Lord, indeed I invited my people [to truth] night and day.

71:6
But my invitation increased them not except in flight.

71:7
And indeed, every time I invited them that You may forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears, covered themselves with their garments, persisted, and were arrogant with [great] arrogance.

71:8
Then I invited them publicly.

71:9
Then I announced to them and [also] confided to them secretly

71:10
And said, 'Ask forgiveness of your Lord.  Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver.

71:11
He will send [rain from] the heaven upon you in [continuing] showers

71:12
And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers.

71:13
What is [the matter] with you that you do not attribute to God [due] grandeur

71:14
While He has created you in stages?

71:15
Do you not consider how God has created seven heavens in layers

71:16
And made the moon therein a light and made the sun a burning lamp?

71:17
And God has caused you to grow from the earth a [progressive] growth.

71:18
Then He will return you into it and extract you [another] extraction.

71:19
And God has made for you the earth an expanse

71:20
That you may follow therein roads of passage.'"

71:21
Noah said, "My Lord, indeed they have disobeyed me and followed him whose wealth and children will not increase him except in loss.

71:22
And they conspired an immense conspiracy.  [*Wisdom of Solomon 10:4 - 5]

71:23
And said, 'Never leave your gods and never leave Wadd or Suwa or Yaghuth and Ya'uq and Nasr.'

71:24
And already they have misled many.  And, [my Lord], do not increase the wrongdoers except in error."

71:25
Because of their sins they were drowned and put into the Fire, and they found not for themselves besides God [any] helpers.

71:26
And Noah said, "My Lord, do not leave upon the earth from among the disbelievers an inhabitant.

71:27
Indeed, if You leave them, they will mislead Your servants and not beget except [every] wicked one and [confirmed] disbeliever.

71:28
My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my house a believer and the believing men and believing women.  And do not increase the wrongdoers except in destruction."
