Prophet Hazrat Nuh a.s
Translated by Fatima Zabeth Beenesh
1642-2592 years after Habuth
~* the floods & storms by the curse of Nuh a.sØæÝÇä äæÍ*~
As the floods down pour gushed into the high and low springs of the earth, covering the hills, low lands and the entire deserts, destroying the total number of people’s abodes except the Kaaba.
Nuh a.s mounted the ship with the slogans of Takbir, Allah o AkbarÇááå Ç˜ÈÑand reciting the praises of God. The water raised the ship and the blowing of wind moved the vessel. Hazrat Nuh a.s recited: 11:41 "Embark in this [ship]! In the name of God be its run and its riding at anchor! Behold, my. Sustainer is indeed much-forgiving, a dispenser of grace!" -
In the name of Almighty God we move and by the command of God we stand. All the rebels, miscreants and disbelievers were flushed in the rage of floods. The high rise waters were throwing, rolling and beating the disbelievers into the deserts, plains and mountain rocks and giving them the painful answer of all their mockeries. The entire inhabitants of infidels slept in the lap of death and for forty days and nights the tears of rain poured on the earth and Nuh a.s was watching from the elevation of the ship.
~* Intercession of Nuh a.s for his son*~
The son of Nuh a.s by the name Kan’an Yafa who was coordinated with the disbelievers and the prophet Nuh a.s prayed the God to save him and requested: He is the member of my family.
God replied him: He does not belong to your family, your family member is one who accompanies you in your believe. Do not ask me the wish that which you are not aware of it.
Kan’an with all his arrogance, ignorance and haughtiness ran to climb the mountain skirts and thinking he was saving his life. When Nuh a.s called him towards the ship, he replied: I do not need the ship.
A mountain high wave rose up between them and threw him in the waters of flood.
The ship moved in the water for six months, it halted when no man and region of infidels and polytheists was left alive. The ship of Nuh a.s stopped on the first of Nouroz on Mountain Judi.
The Mountain Judi and the River Euphrates were near the Kufa. The Earth sucked the waters and the ground dried up, the mountains and plains appeared. Hazrat Nuh a.s got down the ship and said: 23:28 ‘All praise is due to God, who has saved us from those evildoing folk!’
Some said the day of Naoruz and Ashura were coincided at the time of Nuhs floods and storm cessation.
Two animals were created in the ship; the first one was pig, as the excessive excrements were creating the trouble for the boarders of the ship. Nuh a.s beseeched and God addressed him: Go and hit on the back of Elephant. He obeyed and performed as ordered. A pig originated and consumed all the filth and refuse.
And the other animal was cat which came into being in the Nuh’s ship. The rats were piercing a hole in the ship. At this Nuh a.s moaned to God for the life of ship’s lodgers was came into risk. He was addressed by God: Go and rub on the back of the tiger, there a cat came into existence and caught the rats. These two animals disembarked from the ship along with the other animals.
Hazrat Nuh a.s lived for forty days on the mountain Judi after the ship was halted. The companions of Nuh a.s constructed a village, even today that village is famous by the nameÓæÞ ÇáËãÇäیäSuk Samanin (market of eighty) and they established the city of Babul . And from the children of Nuh a.s Haam, Sam and Yafis survived and carried his traditions.
By Sam arabs and non arabs came into creation and mostly the prophets were from the descendants of Sam with white complexion, they were usually virtuous, knowledgeable and scholars. Nuh a.s gave Sam the central part of the world such as Baital Maqdas, River Nile, River Euphrates, Sihon and Gihon.
By Haam all the people with black complexion came into existence.
The descendants of Yafis were the people of China and Japan Yajuj and Majuj were among them.
26:119 So We delivered him and those with him, in the Ark filled (with all creatures).
36:41 And a Sign for them is that We bore their race (through the Flood) in the loaded Ark ;
37:140 When he ran away (like a slave from captivity) to the ship (fully) laden, Al-Qamar [54:13]
54:13 But We bore him on an ( Ark ) made of broad planks and caulked with palm- fibre
~* does the children became the victims of floods? *~
The question in this regard comes across the scholars that the infants and weaklings had committed which kind of sin to become the victims of event and they had been killed in the floods. Were they have been punished for the sins of their parents and fore fathers?
In this matter some believe that the custom of God is that when the calamity occurs the good with the bad, big and the small suffer the harms together. The misery is stretched not for a group of people but it is for the common man of the nation.
Those who have this kind of thinking state that so often children suffer from the various diseases and die in spite of not committing any sin and no one is aware of its spiritual reason.
and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind.
These believe is against the logical reason and the answer for the doubt, which the other nations also define that the Benevolent God is not at all malevolent for any person or nation.
30:41 Mischief has appeared on land and sea because of (the meed) that the hands of men have earned, that ((Allah)) may give them a taste of some of their deeds: in order that they may turn back (from Evil).
The nature of the self existing God is to bless His creation, all in all favours them benefits for their well being, conclusively tyranny is not from Him. God never inflicts the death and annihilation for the society until or unless in the process of replacements of unwise people’s power and to punish them by the outrageous divine revenge, it is not a tyranny but to save the humanity and divert them towards the path of perfection and truth.
For the nations of Nuh a.s, Lut a.s, Samud, Aad and the companions of Rass and so forth as in the beginning the God repeatedly warned and granted them respite by logical reasons and presented them complete proofs but the words of truth were leaving no effect in their hard and unclean hearts.
The kindness of God always compromise with us
When we cross the limits He makes us disgraceful
