Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Following God's command is an important part of the Islamic and Biblical stories of Noah. In both,God punishes those who are not believers. The rainbow in the Bible emphasizes God's forgivenesswhile the Islamic version strongly emphasizes the fact that those who do not submit to God will be punished,with no exceptions. Even Nuh's family was punished in the Qur'an In the Bible, God saw evil in the world and knew it was time to destroy it. He warnedNoah, so Noah, being warned, entered anark with his family, to be safe from theoncoming destruction. In the Qur'an, Nuh was originally sent tohis people to warn them before they werepunished for their wrongdoings. Unlike in the Bible, where God determines the flood to be necessary and warns Noah,The Qur'an tells a story where Nuh asksGod to punish the non-believers, who haveignored his prophetic teachings. Noah is told to build an ark, and the Bible is very specific about the size in whichhe should build it. In both the Qur'an and the Bible, Nuhwas commanded to leave the ark afterthe flood had commenced. In the Qur'an,Nuh and the other believers will proceed to start a new, and better world. Noah would not recieve God's wrath,as in was God's divine intent to warn and saveNoah and his family. -"We sent Noah to his people: 'Warnyour people before a painful punishmentcomes upon them.'" (71:1) In both versions, Nuh is constructed to make an ark to save himself from the flood.In the Qur'an, the dimensions of the ark are not given. -"By faith Noah, being divinely warnedof things not yet seen, moved withgodly fear, prepared an ark for thesaving of his household, by whichhebecame heir of the righteousness."Hebrews 11:7 In the Qur'an, it starklycontrasts from the Bible in that, thewhole world isn't doomed to destruction only those who have not believedthe message of God will be punished.This is not all, just most of the world inthe Islamic story of Nuh. It is interesting that in the Qur'an, Nuh's family is not all saved from the flood. Only believers and their pets are told to get on the ark. Nuh/Noah "[So it was], until when Our commandcame and the oven overflowed, Wesaid, "Load upon the ship of each[creature] two mates and your family,except those about whom the wordhas preceded, and [include] whoeverhas believed." But none had believedwith him, except a few." (11:40) In the Bible, Noah brings with him ontothe ark his family and a male and femaleof each type of animal. These are to be the only survivors of the flood. Biblical Noah Islamic Nuh And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. You shall make a window for the arkand set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second and third decks. Genesis 6: 13-16 In the Bible, Noah exits the arkwhen told by God to find arainbow, a sign of God's promise tonever again destroy everyone.
