HAZRAT NUH (NOAH), FLOOD AND THE QURANIC NARRATIVE
BIGOTED SCHOLARS DO NOT EVEN LOOK AT ULTIMATE TRUTH
Western scholarship is indeed wonderful and do great meaningful stuff, and we are all happy about it. But we see a failing and it spells bigotry, that in any objective research, you approach all available information. Not studying the Islamic narrative is pure bigotry. And then there is the Satanic discourse of dismissing the great flood as a fairy tale. No one gains through controversy or conspiracy. In fact geological surveys all over the world prove the deluge. It is now even added with recovered skeletons (at Philadelphia museum) from Sumeria as well as the China flood story. Narratives give clues.
Obviously there is versions of Old and the new testament. And it is reinforced by at least three other accounts namely mentioned in form of stone tablets cuneiform. The accounts mention a great flood and the work of Hazrat Nuh in building a giant boat (ark). The cuneiform mention a hero Gilgamesh and the same flood story is repeated there. Even the history of Zoroastrians include the association of Ahura Mazda and the hero YIMA with a great flood. That shows a GREAT FLOOD occurred in the past and the date of the flood is not known. A Christian cardinal in the 3rd century namely Berosus has written the story of Noah too and placed the flood in 2317 BC. Most recent theories of scientific West show that a COMET large size struck the Earth and melted the ice and there was a world wide deluge. All this is proven now with geological analysis. And the exact date has been calculated to be about 12800 years ago. A scientific analysis of worldwide flood deluge is of course required. But it did occur and perhaps people have mixed up the dates. Another analysis speaks of the catastrophe which joined the dead sea with outside sea forcibly. Eventually truth will be finalized.
Sorry to say that scientific analysis has already proven that the Old and the New testament are not the books sent down by Allah but with time interpolations were done to fabricate the texts. All Muslims are proud of the fact that the Quran is the only Holy Book unchanged with time and is the original text revealed to Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). So why not study Hazrat Nuh and the great flood as the Quranic narrative. And about Noah, the Quran simply says the following:
Hazrat Nuh was one of the earliest Prophets sent by Allah. The people of Noah had transgressed all morality and moved towards evil. Nuh was sent to bring them to the correct path and not only did they refuse, they mocked Nuh and asked him to bring on the catastrophe and they were ready to face the same. Allah instructed Nuh to build a large boat namely Ark, and get it ready for Nuh and his family as well as two pairs of every animal and bird. Nuh did the same. Nuh asked his son to get on the Ark but he refused too and mocked his father. When the flood came through the valley all those people were drowned and Nuh set sail on his ark. Nuh lamented the drowning of his own son but Allah admonished him that Nuh’s son was not belonging to his Ideology. For many days the Ark traveled and finally came to rest on the mountain JUDI. A different mountain from Ararat. There Nuh settled down and from his birth, his era spanned 950 years. The Quran refers to the era of Nu and does not clarify that as his age. Although Noah’s biographer Berosus speaks out the age of Noah as 950 years old. From Noah came the people of Aad says the Quran.
Atheists bash Christians versions all the time. A British survey in early 20th century found sand layers at 40 feet in Iraq and elsewhere. We add Lahore to the geological survey. A great mass of mere sand in digging reveals a flood like situation. In deep digging of Lahore sand layers have been found at about 40 feet. And even less. Amazing sea stones as well as shells have been discovered under Lahore and it clearly shows that the flood deluge did not spare any place and Lahore was under that deluge too. Obviously no one will bother to research but we have collected earth samples for analysis. The subject is too vast to dismiss, and the Quranic narratives are our faiths.
