(Allah) said: “O Noah! Surely, he is not of your family. Surely his work was other than righteous. Therefore do not ask of Me that of which you have no knowledge! Surely I admonish you lest you may be of the ignorant”.
(Noah) said: “My Lord! I seek refuge with you from asking You that of which I have no knowledge. And unless you forgive me and have Mercy on me, I will indeed be of the losers”.
It was said: “Noah! Disembark in security and blessings from Us! And (some) nations (that will spring), We will give them provisions. Then a painful torment will touch them from Us”.
These are of the narratives of the Unseen which We reveal to you. Neither you nor your people knew it before this. So be patient, surely, the (good) end is for the owners of piety (Al-Muttaqûn).
And to Âd their brother Hûd said: “O my people! Be servants to Allah. You have no god other than He. You are nothing but forgers (of lies)”.
O my people! I do not ask of you any wage (reward) for it. My wage if there is any is only with Him Who created me. Do you still not understand?
And, O my people! Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Then turn to Him in repentance (repent before your religious guide and start doing His remembrance - Dhikir). He will send you (from the sky) abundant rain (Mercy), and add strength to your strength. And do not turn your faces away as criminals (guilty).
They said: “O Hûd! You have not brought to us any clear proof (miracle) and we are not going to desert our gods for your sayings, and we are not believers in you”.
