Commentary

Previously it was commanded that there were many people during the past times also who went astray like these people of Makkah and remained firm on customs and rites of their forefathers. We sent Our Prophets (peace be upon them) who warned them. Then those people who did not obey their sayings were ruined. And the people, who followed them, were saved.

 

Now some circumstances of the men of old and those who warned them, are being described so that it may be known that how the disobedient of the Messengers (peace be upon them) are punished and what reward of good works is given to the Prophets (peace be upon them). One of them was Noah (peace be upon him). He caused to understand the people of his folk: Mostly your works are bad. You should leave them and choose the Right Path! He (peace be upon him) invited them towards the Straight Path for nine hundred and fifty (950) years, but they did never care. Being helpless, he called out to Allaah Almighty: These people do not listen to me. He responded because He is the Best of Responders. He saved him (peace be upon him) and those who believed in him from the evil of wicked people and the great affliction. At last, descendants of Noah (peace be upon him) became heirs of the world. Indeed, Allaah Almighty thus rewards the people who do good. Good mention of Noah (peace be upon him) was left among later generations. Peace will be upon him in the both worlds.
