[Nooh 71:3] “That you must worship Allah and fear Him, and obey me.”

[Nooh 71:4] “He will forgive you some of your sins, and give you respite up to an appointed term; indeed the promise of Allah cannot be averted when it arrives; if only you knew.”

[Nooh 71:7] “And whenever I called them, so that You may forgive them, they always thrust their fingers into their ears, and covered themselves with their clothes, and remained stubborn and were extremely haughty.”
