He said, |O Noah, indeed he is not of your family; indeed, he is [one whose] work was other than righteous, so ask Me not for that about which you have no knowledge. Indeed, I advise you, lest you be among the ignorant.
[Noah] said, |My Lord, I seek refuge in You from asking that of which I have no knowledge. And unless You forgive me and have mercy upon me, I will be among the losers.
It was said, |O Noah, disembark in security from Us and blessings upon you and upon nations [descending] from those with you. But other nations [of them] We will grant enjoyment; then there will touch them from Us a painful punishment.
That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muúammad]. You knew it not, neither you nor your people, before this. So be patient; indeed, the [best] outcome is for the righteous .
And to 'Aad [We sent] their brother Hud. He said, |O my people, worship Allah ; you have no deity other than Him. You are not but inventors [of falsehood].
O my people, I do not ask you for it any reward. My reward is only from the one who created me. Then will you not reason?
And O my people, ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in showers and increase you in strength [added] to your strength. And do not turn away, [being] criminals.
They said, |O Hud, you have not brought us clear evidence, and we are not ones to leave our gods on your say-so. Nor are we believers in you.
