023 - Soorah al-Mu.minoon - (The Believers) - [Makkee]
[023:018] And We sent down from the sky water (rain) in (due) measure, and We gave it lodging in the earth, and verily, We are Able to take it away.
[023:019] Then We brought forth for you therewith gardens of date palms and grapes, wherein is much fruit for you, and whereof you eat.
[023:020] And a tree (olive) that springs forth from Mount Sinai, that grows (produces) oil, and (it is a) Sibghin (relish) for the eaters.
[023:021] And verily, in the cattle there is indeed a lesson for you. We give you to drink (milk) of that which is in their bellies. And there are, in them, numerous (other) benefits for you, and of them you eat.
[023:022] And on them and on ships you are carried.
[023:023] And indeed We sent Nûh (Noah) to his people, and he said: "O my people! Worship Allâh! You have no other Ilâh (God) but Him (Islâmic Monotheism). Will you not then be afraid (of Him, i.e. of His punishment because of worshipping others besides Him)?"
[023:024] But the chiefs of his people who disbelieved said: "He is no more than a human being like you, he seeks to make himself superior to you. Had Allâh willed, He surely could have sent down angels. Never did we hear such a thing among our fathers of old.
[023:025] "He is only a man in whom is madness, so wait for him a while."
[023:026] [Nûh (Noah)] said: "O my Lord! Help me because they deny me."
[023:027] So, We revealed to him (saying): "Construct the ship under Our Eyes and under Our Revelation (guidance). Then, when Our Command comes, and water gushes forth from the oven, take on board of each kind two (male and female), and your family, except those thereof against whom the Word has already gone forth. And address Me not in favour of those who have done wrong. Verily, they are to be drowned.
