071 - Soorah Nooh - ((Prophet) Noah) - [Makkee]
[071:011] 'He will send rain to you in abundance,
[071:012] 'And give you increase in wealth and children, and bestow on you gardens and bestow on you rivers.' "
[071:013] What is the matter with you, that [you fear not Allâh (His punishment), and] you hope not for reward (from Allâh or you believe not in His Oneness).
[071:014] While He has created you in (different) stages [i.e. first Nutfah, then 'Alaqah and then Mudghah, see (V.23:13,14)].
[071:015] See you not how Allâh has created the seven heavens one above another?
[071:016] And has made the moon a light therein, and made the sun a lamp?
[071:017] And Allâh has brought you forth from the (dust of) earth. (Tafsir At-Tabarî)
[071:018] Afterwards He will return you into it (the earth), and bring you forth (again on the Day of Resurrection).
[071:019] And Allâh has made for you the earth a wide expanse.
[071:020] That you may go about therein in broad roads.
[071:021] Nûh (Noah) said: "My Lord! They have disobeyed me, and followed one whose wealth and children give him no increase but loss.
[071:022] "And they have plotted a mighty plot.
[071:023] "And they have said: 'You shall not leave your gods, nor shall you leave Wadd, nor Suwâ', nor Yaghûth, nor Ya'ûq, nor Nasr' (these are the names of their idols).
[071:024] "And indeed they have led many astray. And (O Allâh): 'Grant no increase to the Zâlimûn (polytheists, wrong doers, and disbelievers) except error.' "
[071:025] Because of their sins they were drowned, then were made to enter the Fire. And they found none to help them instead of Allâh.
[071:026] And Nûh (Noah) said: "My Lord! Leave not one of the disbelievers on the earth!
[071:027] "If You leave them, they will mislead Your slaves, and they will beget none but wicked disbelievers.
[071:028] "My Lord! Forgive me, and my parents, and him who enters my home as a believer, and all the believing men and women. And to the Zâlimûn (polytheists, wrong doers, and disbelievers) grant You no increase but destruction!"
