Sura Hud from 38 to 45

38. And as he was constructing the ship, whenever the chiefs of his people passed by him, they mocked at him. He said: « If you mock at us, so do we mock at you likewise for your mocking.»
39. « And you will know who it is on whom will come a torment that will cover him with disgrace and on whom will fall a lasting torment. »
40. ( So it was ) till when Our Command came and the oven gushed forth ( water like fountains from the earth ) . We said: « Embark therein, of each kind two ( male and female ) , and your family - except him against whom the Word has already gone forth - and those who believe. And none believed with him, except a few. »
41. And he [ Nûh ( Noah ) ( as ) ] said: « Embark therein: in the Name of Allâh will be its ( moving ) course and its ( resting ) anchorage. Surely, my Lord is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful. » ( Tafsir At- Tabarî )
42. So it ( the ship ) sailed with them amidst waves like mountains, and Nûh ( Noah ) called out to his son, who had separated himself ( apart ) : « O my son! Embark with us and be not with the disbelievers. »
43. ( The son ) replied: « I will betake myself to some mountain; it will save me from the water. » Nûh ( Noah ) said: « This day there is no saviour [ 1 ] from the Decree of Allâh except him on whom He has mercy. » And waves came in between them, so he ( the son ) was among the drowned.
44. And it was said: « O earth! Swallow up your water, and O sky! Withhold ( your rain ) . » And the water was made to subside and the Decree ( of Allâh ) was fulfilled ( i.e. the destruction of the people of Nûh ( Noah ) . And it ( the ship ) rested on ( Mount ) Jûdî, and it was said: « Away with the people who are Zalimûn ( polytheists and wrong- doers ) ! »
45. And Nûh ( Noah ) called upon his Lord and said, « O my Lord! Verily, my son is of my family! And certainly, Your Promise is true, and You are the Most Just of the judges. »

[1] (V.11:43) Narrated Abu Sa‘îd Al-Khudrî that the Prophet (saas) said, "No Caliph is appointed but has two groups of advisors: One group advises him to do good and urges him to adopt it, and the other group advises him to do bad and urges him to adopt it: and Al-Ma‘sûm (the sinless or the saved or the protected) is the one whom Allâh protects." (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol.8, Hadith No.608).
