The accounts of the Prophets mentioned in the Quran are timeless - they are not restricted to any particular age or epoch.
Prophet Noah عليه السلام is one of the great messengers of God. Many believers would identify with the struggles of Noah عليه السلام, particularly those living in the West where the concept of God is becoming increasingly far removed from people’s lives.
Like many believers today, Noah عليه السلام faced much ridicule for his belief in God. Yet it was the strength of his belief that proved his salvation along with those who heeded his exhortations and warnings.
What makes the story of Noah عليه السلام remarkable is that the narrative extends over centuries, building up to the cataclysmic event of the Flood. This alone is worthy of much contemplation and reflection.
While other religious traditions also document the Great Flood, their accounts are usually viewed through an archeological lens. Its theological significance - which contains many valuable lessons - is often lost.
Fictionalised Hollywood accounts and hyper-sensationalised edutainment shows further distort the picture and compounds the loss of insight and wisdom.
Join Ustadha Umm Sahl for a two day masterclass as she unpacks this amazing series of historical events and authoritatively recreates a picture that balances theology and history.
