The conversation between Prophet Noah, upon him peace, and the chiefs is throughout the Quran from various angles and perspectives. Each perspective sheds light on one aspect of the conversation.
He said, “My Lord, indeed I invited my people [to truth] night and day. But my invitation increased them not except in flight. And indeed, every time I invited them that You may forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears, covered themselves with their garments, persisted, and were arrogant with [great] arrogance. Then I invited them publicly. Then I announced to them and [also] confided to them secretly And said, ‘Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver.’”(Quran 71:5-10)

In chapter 5 of my book, I shared some reflections on the resolute prophets and dealing with rejection. Do you agree with those reflections given the communication in this chapter of the Quran? Why or why not?
The video will discuss chapter 6 and review the following sections:
- Noah and “The Most Abject Among Us”
- We Are Not in Control
- Speaking Truth to Power Is Not About Results
Noah, upon him peace, is one of the most resolute prophets. He showed tremendous resolve, yet, again, no utopia and only 80 people followed him.
