We had certainly sent Noah to his people, and he said, “O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Allah. Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a tremendous Day.”
Said the eminent among his people, “Indeed, we see you in clear error.”
Noah said, “O my people, there is not error in me, but I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds.
I convey to you the messages of my Lord and advise you; and I know from Allah that which you do not know.
Then do you wonder that there has come to you a reminder from your Lord through a man from among you, that he may warn you and that you may fear Allah so you might receive mercy?
The Holy Q’uran, Surah 7, Ayas 59-63
