Quran Chapter 11-36 & 37 (Pt-12, Stg-3) (L-1371) – درس قرآن

Drowning and dying of the disbelievers

Surah Huud (Hud) – 11


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

36.  And it was inspired in Noah, (saying): No-one of thy folk will believe save those who have believed already; so be not distressed because of what they do.


37.  And build the ship under Our eyes and by Our inspiration, and speak not unto Me on behalf of those who do wrong. Lo! They will be drowned.

(Section 4)

36.  Wa  ‘uu-hiya  ‘ilaa  Nuuhim  ‘annahuu  lany-yu’-mina  min  qawmika  ‘illaa  man-  qad  ‘aamana  falaa  tabta-‘is  bimaa  kaanuu  yaf-‘aluun.


37.  Wasna-‘il-Fulka  bi-‘a’-yu-ninaa  wa  Wah-yinaa  wa  laa  tukhaa-tibnii  filla-ziina  zala-muu.  ‘Innahum-mug-raquun.      




It is commanded that it was inspired in Noah (peace be upon him): From your nation, those who had to believe, have believed. Now no more people will believe. Their evil deeds have caused to merit them of a severe punishment. Therefore, being distressed for their wrong doings is useless. A heavy storm of water is near to come very soon. These people will be drowned and die in it. You should be worried about the safety of yourself and your believers, and start building a magnificent ship. We shall protect and watch over your work, and teach you the technique of building the ship by means of Inspiration and Revelation. You should give up thinking about the ignorant and astray people. Coming of the storm is eternal and dying by drowning of all disbelievers is certain. Now you should not recommend anyone of the wrongdoers. They are not able to be forgiven now.


When the time of appearance of the intention of Allah Almighty reaches, then the Messengers (peace be upon them) are informed timely that they should arrange for safety precautions to escape from the wrath of Allah Almighty. Therefore, it was commanded to Noah (peace be upon him) that he should begin fabricating a big ship. Allah Almighty would guide him through inspiration that “How and which type of ship is required to be fabricated?”
