Prophet Nuh story in English

But it wasn’t going to be
an easy job for the prophet.

“Fear Allah, and do what Allah says”

shouted the prophet to everyone.

But the people didn’t want to listen.

They shook their heads, and
continued worshipping the idols.

The prophet was an excellent speaker

and he was very patient too.

“Don’t you understand that it was Allah
who created this whole world?”

shouted the prophet.

“It was Allah who created the sun,

the moon and the stars you see in the sky.

He created the rivers,the mountains,the
trees and everything you see around.

He did all this for you,

and you alone.

Then why are you not showing
him any respect?

Why are you worshipping these idols?

But the people turned their backs
on him saying

“Ha.. Who are you to advice us?

You are just another man,

and we think that you are lying.

Go away, and leave us alone.

But there were good
muslims on earth too!

Most of them were weak, and poor.


Story of Prophet Nuh as.


They listened to the words of the prophet and realized
that they were committing a sin by worshipping the idols.

Now there were two different
group of people on earth.

One who worshipped Allah (swt),

and the others who continued
idol worship

Nuh(as) continued preaching
to the people for many years.

The idol worshippers soon
became tired of the prophet.

“You’ve been preaching lies
for long enough” they said.

“We are going to stone you
if you do not stop”

But the prophet ignored them, and
continued calling the people tirelessly.

He preached to them during
the day, and the night.

On many occasions,

he was stoned by the idol worshippers,
while preaching to the crowd

He was even beaten with the sticks!

“You are not different from us”
shouted the idol worshippers.

“You are no prophet!

You are just another man,

and why should we listen to you?”

“I’m telling you the truth”

the prophet pleaded to them.

“You are committing a sin
by worshipping the idols”

But the people didn’t listen
and they beat him again!

“I fear for you!
Allah is going to punish you one day”

The prophet shouted to them

But the people had no shame,
and they said

“He is a fool,
don’t listen to him”

All this pain did not let the Prophet
to stop calling out to the people.

He continued preaching to them for
for nine hundred and fifty years!

The disbelievers kept making
fun of the prophet,

and by now they had taken
things too far!

Nuh (as) was disappointed by now.

Whereas the number of disbelievers
kept growing and growing.

One night when the prophet
was offering his prayers,

Allah spoke to him!!

“Don’t be sad Nuh”

God said to the prophet

“You have done what you
were asked to.

I am going to punish all the people o
n the earthfor their wrongdoings.

Everyone on earth is going to die,


except the muslims and the animals”

said Allah (swt).

As the first step,

God then asked the prophet
to plant many trees!

Nuh (as) didn’t understand
the reason behind this,

but he listened to Allah, and started
planting trees as he was told.

He also asked the good muslims,
who listened to him him to do the same.

They did this for more than
one hundred years!

After many years, Allah spoke
to the prophet again!

This time he asked the Prophet
to start building a ship!!

“It has to be a huge ship,

that can accommodate a pair of every
animal on this earth” said Allah.

The prophet was confused.

He didn’t know how to build a ship,

and no one had ever made
a ship before!

In spite of this,the prophet started making
the ship with the help of the Maliks.

First they made plans for building the ship

No one knows the exact size of the ship,

some say it had a length of 600ft,

and others say it had a length of 2400ft!!

Whatever it was,the ship was sure
going to be gigantic one!

“We will help you to build the ship”

said his children, and the muslims,
and they joined the prophet.

First, the prophet had to choose
a place for building the ship

He chose the mountains far
far away from the city.

The prophet collected the tools,
and set out to build the ship

They started cutting down
the trees for wood.

Yes, it was the same trees he that he
had planted more than a hundred years back!

Then they started building the
ship as per the plan

The men worked very hard,
day and night to build the ship.

When the disbelievers saw the prophet
building a ship on top of a mountain,

they started making fun of him!

You are such an old fool” they said..

“Why would you possibly
need a ship so huge”

The others said “And how are you
going to take it to the sea?”

“You would come to know very soon”
replied the prophet.

The people didn’t know why the prophet
was building the ship,

and they thought that the prophet
had lost his mind!

The prophet and his men kept
working hard.

After many months,
the ship was finally ready!

They then thanked Allah for
helping them to finish the ship

The time for the flood was
nearing day by day.

One night Allah told the prophet

that he will start flooding the earth,

the day when the prophet sees water
coming out of the stove in his house!

You see, this huge ship built
by the Prophet

had three different sections!

They were for different types
of animals Amir.

The first one was for birds.

The second part of the structure
was for humans,

and the third part was for animals.


That was brilliant!

Yes my son

And while the day of the
flood got nearer,

animals and the birds started
arriving one by one!

They were arriving in pairs-
one male and a female!

There were elephants, giraffes,
lions, rabbits, parrots

and soon the ship was filled with all the variety
of animals and birds from the earth!

And one day, like Allah had
told the prophet,

water suddenly started coming
out of a stove in his kitchen.

This was the sign Nuh (as)
was waiting for!

He knew that the time
of flood had arrived!

When he went out,

he saw that it had started raining too!

Without wasting anytime,

he ran out and called all the good muslims
who had helped himto build the ship.

He asked all of them to board
the ship immediately.

The disbelievers didn’t understand
what was going on,

so they kept laughing at the prophet.

“Look at the old fool” they said.

“What is he going to do with
all those animals and men”

The prophet ignored them and asked his
wives and sons to board the ship quickly.

Everyone obeyed him,

except for one of his wife,

and her son

who were not his followers..

“I will save myself from the water”

his son said.

“Don’t worry
about me”

The water levels had gone up by now,

so the prophet ran to
board the ship.

A terrible flood broke out, and the
water levels began to rise rapidly.

The earths crust moved,

and ocean floors started rising
which caused it to flood the dry lands!!

The rains didn’t stop for hours either!

By now people realized that what
the prophet told them was true,

and they ran towards the
mountains to save themselves.

The prophet saw that his wife and son
were climbing a mountain

to escape from the water.

So he shouted to them


But they ignored him and climbed
to the top of the mountain.

Then a huge wave, bigger than the mountain
they stood on,came and hit them,

killing both of them!!

These enormous waves killed
all other disbelievers as well!!

The water kept rising and rising,

and after sometime, the earth was
completely filled with water!

Then Nuh (as) said


When the prophet uttered these
words, the ship started moving!

The rains had stopped by now,

but the entire earth was filled
with water.

The prophet knew that he had
to keep sailing for a long long time

But didn’t the animals hurt other?

Then how did they live together?

The ship had eighty people in it,

and the prophet had taken precautions to
store enough food for the men and the animals

Allah had it all planned my son.

He made the ship suitable for the
silent sheep as well as the violent lion!

All the violent animals were
down with some or the other sickness

All of them were living together,

but the prophet faced a lot of
trouble because of the rats.

They were everywhere,
running up and down,

nibbling there, nibbling here..

They were really the troublemakers.

And then the prophet prayed to allah,and
it was then that Allah created the cats!

The cats hunted down the rats,
and after sometime,

the rats started behaving as well.

Like that Allah solved many problems
that the prophet had to face

during the journey.

They had sailed for about one
hundred and fifty days by now,

and they couldn’t find land
anywhere they could see.

The prophet and the men waited
and waited for many days

The prophet then decided to send
a crow to see if it could find land anywhere.

But the crow didn’t return at all

Then the prophet sent a dove in
search of the land.

The dove flew away,

Nuh alaihis salam boat


and after a few days

returned with a branch of
olive tree in its beaks!

The prophet and his family were
really happy,

as they knew that they were
close to the land!

The ship sailed further for sometime,

and finally reached on top
of the Joodi mountain.

The prophet said

and the ship stopped moving!

After travelling for more than
one hundred and fifty days,

their journey had finally
come to an end

The prophet released all the animals,
birds and insects first into the land.

They went out and populated
the earth back again.

The prophet and other muslims
came out of the ship,

and the first thing he did was to put his
forehead to the ground in prostration!

And that was a new beginning
for the human race!
