In the name of Allah, most Kind, most Merciful
Surah 71 (Nuh)
*The dua of Nuh AS*
“And Noah said: O my Lord! Leave not of the Unbelievers, a single one on earth!, For, if Thou dost leave (any of) them, they will but mislead Thy devotees, and they will breed none but wicked ungrateful ones.”
The prayer of Nuh AS to destroy his people may seem harsh and unkind. However we must bear in mind that this dua follows many years of relentless preaching by Nuh AS and as a result of his people’s obstinate rebellion, the damage that these evil people could have caused, would have been far worse. Hence Nuh AS prays for their destruction. The substituting of evil people with good people by Allah SWT is part of the Sunnatullah.
Cross reference Surah 70 verse 40-41
“Now I do call to witness the Lord of all points in the East and the West that We can certainly. Substitute for them better (men) than they: and We are not to be defeated (in Our Plan).”
