The Prophet Nuhis one of the most ancient Prophets. He is mentioned in the Qur'an many times, and there is even a Sura (Chapter 71) named after him. His story is that God sent him to his people to warn them to worship Him and to abandon their idols. However, they repeatedly rejected him -all except a few poor people of low-standing - and eventually God sent a flood which covered the earth and drowned every one except the Prophet Nuhand his Companions who had been forewarned to build a ship, and who thus were saved in it.
