Descendants can be metaphoric here since Prophet Abraham is called our father, and satan's followers are called his seeds:

So Noah is our father.  Tafsir ibn Kathir is wrong, because no flood ever covered the entire earth, and the Glorious Quran does not talk about the doom of all nations via the flood.  It only talked about the doomed people of Noah via the flood, and the livestock that Noah and the few with him were commanded to take with them in his little ship/ark.


It remains in the unseen and unknown as to how many Prophets and Messengers exactly came from the bloodline of Noah, and how many were metaphoric from other nations, peace be upon all of Prophets and Messengers of Allah Almighty.  This nobody knows and is only known to Allah Almighty.  But what is known is that Allah Almighty made Prophet Noah the cornerstone of what Allah Almighty called one of the Glorious Quran's GREATEST Miracles:

Is Noah's flood local or global? I know that you say it is local because why would Allah punish all nations just for one nation? However, the Quran seems to suggest that the flood was global.

If flood was local, the river and sea level had rose beyond the tallest mountain within Noah's (pbuh) nation. That means the other side of planet experienced recede in water level.

If flood was global, then water level around the globe will just rose to the extent where the tallest mountain in Noah's nation submerged. Still other parts of world higher than the said mountain would not be affected at all.

The ship was a small boat that carried Noah and his believers and some livestock.  The flood was local and the hill or small mountain that they landed on was also local.
