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.
