Waiting for God’s Command

Chapter Mu’-minuun” – (The Believers) – 23

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

 فَأَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْهِ أَنِ ٱصْنَعِ ٱلْفُلْكَ بِأَعْيُنِنَا وَوَحْيِنَا فَإِذَا جَآءَ أَمْرُنَا وَفَارَ ٱلتَّنُّورُ فَٱسْلُكْ فِيهَا مِن كُلٍّ زَوْجَيْنِ ٱثْنَيْنِ وَأَهْلَكَ إِلَّا مَن سَبَقَ عَلَيْهِ ٱلْقَوْلُ مِنْهُمْ وَلَا تُخَٰطِبْنِى فِىٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوٓا۟ إِنَّهُم مُّغْرَقُونَ 27

27a.  Then We inspired in him, saying: Make the ship under Our eyes and Our inspiration. Then, when Our Command cometh and the oven gusheth water, take therein of every (kind) two spouses, and thy household 27a.  Fa-‘awhayNaaa  ‘ilayhi  ‘anisna-‘il-Fulka  bi-‘a’-yuni-Naa  wa  wahyiNaa  fa-‘izaa  jaaa-‘a  ‘AmruNaa  wa  faarat-tannuuru,  fasluk  fiihaa  min-  kullin-  zawjaynis-nayni  wa  ‘ahlaka




Supplication of Noah (peace be upon him) was accepted. It was decided that the rebellious people should be disgraced. Power of Allaah Almighty appeared and that happened which was required to be happened.


Holy Qur’an says: Allaah Almighty revealed unto Noah (peace be upon him) and commanded: Prepare a ship. We shall be Watchful of your working and We shall guide you in this matter by means of inspiration as and when required that how much long and wide the ship should be, which thing of the ship should be made at which place and which necessary material can be taken from where. A water storm is coming very soon. The water will break in upon the earth from all around. It will be raining from the sky continually and gushing rash from the earth. No living being will escape on this earth, but only those which will embark on the ship prepared by you. First sign of starting the storm will be that the water will begin to gush from the oven. As soon as you look this sign, you should uplift one pair (male and female) of every living creature including all members of your family, but leave them who do not embark.


This story has been narrated at various places in Holy Qur’an so that it may open the ears of human beings again and again. And it may take carefully the heart of every mankind that opposites of the Prophets of Allaah Almighty (peace be upon them) were ruined badly during every era. Although they were given respite but they did not obey God’s Messengers (peace be upon them)
