Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Noah is best known in both texts for his role during a great flood. In the Bible, this flood is entirely the result of Gods decision to kill the wicked and to save the righteous. Under Gods orders, Noah built an ark so that the righteous could be saved and everyone else would perish. Noah, his family, and a male and female from each animal species boarded the ark and all of the wicked were said to have been killed. All of the species onboard the ark were kept safe during the time of the flood. In the Bible, the disappointment in humans is primarily from God. God sees Noah as the only worthy one. As a result Noah is called upon to preserve human and animal species. He and his family members are the only humans who survive the flood. After the flood has ended, God forms a covenant with Noah and all other creatures that a catastrophic event like the flood will never happen again. The rainbow has become a symbol of this covenant. Just like in the Bible, Noah is a symbolic figure in the Quran of the true and righteous path of God. It was Noah who recognized the importance of faith in God when others didnt. double click to change this title text!

Obedience to God is an important message in the Bible, as disobedience was the cause of the flood. The story of Noah helps Christians to see both the fearful and merciful side of God because in the end God was forgiving of humans. Noah in the Bible and Qur'an Noahs wife and one of his sons are nonbelievers and they drown during the flood, although otherfaithful humans are saved. Despite Noahs prominent position of power, no exceptions are made for his unfaithful family members. An important lesson the Quran teaches in addition to those common to the Bible is the responsibility that all individuals have for the consequences of their actions. In the Quran, Noah, rather than God, is the one who is disappointed in his people. He attemptsto warn his people of the flood that is coming and tells them to change their ways. In particular, he pleads with them to abandon their idolatrous practices, but the people choose to ignore and ridicule him. He is told by God to build a ship, which makes him feel even more ridiculed. He is angry and asks God to kill all nonbelievers, and when the flood takes place he his only allowed to save the believers. In the Quran, the story of Noah and the flood also teaches about the absolute importance of following a righteous path and obeying God. Noah warns his people of their sinful ways, but they fail to listen and they are drowned in the flood. The story illustrates how severe the punishment can be for failing to obey God. Bible Qur'an [Noah]: My Lord, forgive me and my parents, and whoever enters my house believing, and the believing men and the believing women, and increase the evildoers only in destruction!” (71.28) [This verse conveys God as one who should be feared, but also one who can be forgiving] Do you not see how God created seven heavens in stories, and placed the moon in them as a light, and placed the sun (in them) as a lamp? And God caused you to grow from of the earth, (and) then He will return you into it, and bring you forth again. God has made the earth an expanse for you, so that you may traverse its open (path)ways. (71.15-71.20) [These verses illustrate the importance of attributing the wonders of the world to God]
