71:1 We sent Noah to his people, “Warn your people before an awful doom comes to them.”1

Note 1


This is the 71st Surah of the Qur’an. It has 28 verses. It is a common misconception that Adam was the first Prophet of God. Adam is an allegory for mankind. It is obvious from the Qur’an that Noah was the first ever Prophet of God. [2:30-39, 6:84 7:10, 15:28, 20:116, 30:20, 38:71]



With the Glorious Name of God, the Instant and Sustaining Source of all Mercy and Kindness

71:4 so that He may forgive you some of your sins, and grant you respite until a term known [to Him alone]:1 but, behold, when the term appointed by God does come, it can never be put back - if you but knew it!"

Note 1
Namely, until the end of each person's life - implying that although they might be forgiven all sins committed before their postulated change of heart, they would henceforth, until their death, be held fully accountable for their behaviour in the light of that new-found faith. Cf. 4:18 - "repentance shall not be accepted from those who do evil deeds until their dying hour and then say, Behold, I now repent'".
Rashad Khalifa (The Final Testament)
71:4 "He will then forgive you your sins and respite you for a predetermined period. Most assuredly, GOD's appointment can never be delayed, once it is due, if you only knew.",
Shabbir Ahmed (Quran As It Explains Itself)
71:4 He will then protect you from the detriment of trailing behind in humanity and respite you until a term appointed. When the term appointed by God comes, it cannot be delayed, if you but knew this."

Note 3
For the reason of the above interpolation - which endows the concept of "garments" with a metaphorical meaning - see note 2 on 74:4; cf. also the expression "garment of God-consciousness" (libas at-taqwa) in 7:26.
Rashad Khalifa (The Final Testament)
71:7 "Whenever I invited them to be forgiven by You, they placed their fingers in their ears, covered themselves with their clothes, insisted, and turned arrogant.,

Note 2

Evolution is a marvelous assembly line of creation designed by God. See 29:18; 41:9; 7:69; 15:26; 24:45; 32:7. Evolution of species through mutation and cumulative selection, as subscribed by the modern scientific community, provides sufficient evidence for the existence of immanent intelligent design in nature. The theory of evolution provides more evidence for an intelligent designer than a fingerprint on a canvas could provide clues about the identity of its human painter. Inferring the existence and some attributes of an intelligent designer from nature is as equally scientific as inferring the existence and some attributes of an unknown creature from its footprints left in the sand. For a debate on Evolution versus Intelligent Design, see the Appendix titled "The Blind Watch-Watchers or Smell the Cheese: An Intelligent and Delicious Argument for Intelligent Design in Evolution" by Edip Yuksel.

The Monotheist Group (The Quran: A Monotheist Translation)
71:14 "While He created you in stages?"
Muhammad Asad (The Message Of Quran)

Note 7
I.e., by a process of gradual evolution, in the mother's womb, from a drop of sperm and a fertilized germ-cell (the female ovum), up to the point where the embryo becomes a new, self-contained human entity (cf. 22:5): all of which points to the existence of a plan and a purpose and, hence, to the existence of a conscious Creator.

Note 10
This phrase has a twofold meaning. In the first instance, it alludes to the evolution of the individual human body out of the same substances - both organic and inorganic - as are found in and on the earth as well: and in this sense it enlarges upon the creation of the human individual "in successive stages" referred to in verse 14 above. Secondly, it alludes to the evolution of the human species, which, starting from the most primitive organisms living on earth, has gradually ascended to ever higher stages of development until it has finally reached that complexity of body, mind and soul evident in the human being.

71:17 And GOD germinated you from the earth like plants.,

Lit., "and have followed him whose wealth and children do not increase him in aught but loss": i.e., people whose propensity and power only enhance their false pride and arrogance, and thus lead them to spiritual ruin.

As is evident from early sources, these five gods were among the many worshipped by the pre-Islamic Arabs as well (see the small but extremely valuable work by Hisham ibn Muhammad al-Kalbi, KitAb al-Asnam, ed. Ahmad Zaki, Cairo 1914). Their cult had probably been introduced into Arabia from Syria and Babylonia, where it seems to have existed in earliest antiquity.

They had set up idols: Wadd, the god of masculinity. Suw’a, the goddess of femininity. Yaghuth, the lion god of power. Ya'uq, the horse god for travel and battle. Nasr, the eagle god for flying in to ‘steal’ the news of the Unseen
