The believer enters the Ark in the name of Allah, just as today’s Muslims always remember the name of God first.
“Go on board! The sailing and stopping of this ship are in the name of God. My Lord is indeed the most Forgiving, and the merciful.” (The Qur’an 11:41)
Noah built a wooden ark according to the instructions of Allah, which protected the believers from rain and flood. The internal activities of the earth are not normal, and the sudden explosion of the seabed caused the flooding caused by the tsunami. The waves like mountains and rivers drowned everything, and the waves rolled up the ark, like a matchbox on the ocean. But the wooden structure of the Ark makes it safe and reliable, because its passengers have a firm trust and belief in Allah.
Noah can see his son in the ark from the flood. Noah shouted to him to the deck to get rid of the fate of his unbelievers. But his son thought about this life and did not believe in Allah. He said that he would go to the mountains to escape, how could the flood flood the mountain? Noah asked his son: “No one can protect others from the punishment of God, except God who is merciful God.” His son refused to accept and was eventually taken away by the waves. The Qur’an mentions related content:
“Noah shouted to called his child far away from the boat and said, ‘My child! Come and join us in the boat! Don’t be with people who are unbelievers.’ His son said: ‘I want to go to a mountain to avoid Flood. ‘He said: ‘Today, no one except God’s merciful can protect person and no person can protect others from punishment of God. ‘The waves separated him and his son, and the son was drowned.” (The Qur’an 11:42-43)
“And it was said: “O earth! Swallow up your water, and O sky! Withhold (your rain).” And the water was diminished (made to subside) and the Decree (of Allâh) was fulfilled (i.e. the destruction of the people of Nûh (Noah). And it (the ship) rested on Mount Judi, and it was said: “Away with the people who are Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong-doing)!” (The Qur’an 11:44)
Unlike Christian and Jewish narration, Islam does not mention the use of Noah birds (or pigeons or crows) to find land. In fact, Allah ordered the rain to stop, so that the water no longer emerged from the cracks in the ground. After that, the wind is beautiful and the sun shines. The flood cleaned the earth and eliminated idolatry and unbelievers. There is no non-believers on the earth. The flood receded and the ark stopped at Mount Judi (it is said to be in Turkey today).
Although Noah is a prophet and leader, he is also a father. He mourned and wept and prayed to Allah:
“My Lord! My son is my loved one, your promise is true, and you are the most impartial judge.” (The Qur’an 11:45)
Noah remembers that Allah promised to save his family. Noah does not doubt Allah’s promise, but he wants to understand Allah’s intentions. So Allah taught Noah.

As human beings, we use words to define certain things, but Allah can give them new meaning and more comprehensive meaning. For example, the word “prayer” (Salat) originally meant “supplication to Allah,” but Islam gave it a new meaning: prayer and daily prayers. We use the term “family” (Ai Haili). The first thing that comes to mind is the family of blood relationship. Noah begged Allah to say that his son is his family, but Allah told Noah that his son is not his family. Because he is evil and unbelief. The true family is a person who sincerely believes in Allah.
“Noah! He is indeed not your family. He is evil. Don’t pray to me for things you don’t know. I advise you not to be a fool.” (The Qur’an 11:46)
Noah understood, he said:
“Nûh (Noah) said: “O my Lord! I seek refuge with You from asking You that of which I have no knowledge. And unless You forgive me and have Mercy on me, I would indeed be one of the losers.” (The Qur’an 11:47)
Noah released the birds and fish worms and scattered them all over the world. Noah and his family landed, and Noah completely fell to the ground. In this regard, neither the Qur’an nor the Hadith is mentioned. We don’t know what his family is, what happened. What we know is that before he died, he called his sons to the bed and told them to worship the only Allah, the creator and maintainer of the universe.

The Prophet Muhammad said: “When the Prophet Noah died, he advised his sons: I suggest you two things, warning you two things. Tell you that ‘no one should be worshipped, only God,’ and the seven heavens Place it on the left side of the weighing pan on the seventh floor and put word ‘there is no god, but Only God’ on the right. The latter is always heavier than the former. I warn you to match the Lord and warn you to be arrogant.” (“Bukhari”)
The majority of Noah refused his mission, but he survived the depths of today’s Muslims. When Noah died, he conveyed the words of comfort and hope of salvation to future generations, allowing them to preserve the Muslim faith and be convinced of the existence of Allah. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), also told us that Allah promised the believer: If we belief only in Allah and we worship Him alone, Allah will not refuse to give us Paradise.
