[The following are but two of the many prominent excerpts concerning the Prophet Noah.]|
"Allah did exalt Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of Imran above all the people of their times - a group spiritually akin one to another. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing."
- Chapter 3, Verses 34-5
"The people of Noah rejected the Messenger, when their brother Noah said to them: Will you not be righteous? I am sent to you as a trusty Messenger. So be mindful of your duty to Allah, and obey me. I ask of you no recompense for it; my recompense is with the Lord of the worlds. So fear Allah, and obey me. His people retorted: Shall we believe in thee, when it is the meanest who follow thee? Noah remonstrated with them: What knowledge have I of their doings? It is only my Lord who can call them to account, could you but understand. I am not going to drive away those who believe. I am only a plain Warner. The disbelievers warned: If you do not desist, Noah, you shall certainly be stoned to death. Noah implored his Lord: My people have rejected me Lord, therefore, do Thou judge finally between them and me, and deliver me and the believers that are with me from our enemies. So We delivered him and those who were with him in the fully laden Ark; and We drowned all the rest. In this, verily, there is a Sign, but most of these would not believe. Surely, it is thy Lord Who is Mighty, the Ever Merciful."
- Chapter 26, Verses 106-23
