Noah

<< < (5/5)

Qualities of Allah:
Ok one last question. Why does Quran verse 37:77 say that only Noah's descendents were saved from the flood when Noah's followers who were not his family were also in the Ark?

(I now understand that the verse says only his household OUT OF HIS PEOPLE were saved and not out of the whole world but now I am asking why it says only his descendents were saved as he also had unrelated followers?)

Jazakallah Khayran

QuranSearchCom:
[037:076]  And We delivered him and his people from the Great Calamity,
[037:077]  And made his progeny to endure (on this earth);
[037:078]  And We left (this blessing) for him among generations to come in later times:
[037:079]  "Peace and salutation to Noah among the nations!"

Prophet Noah, peace be upon him, and his followers (people) were saved.  The believers were not drowned.  Noah's son was among the disbelievers and he perished.

Noah's offspring after the flood were the fathers and bloodline of Prophets.  This I believe is limited to the Middle Eastern Prophets and Messengers.
