WHY DID THE PROPHET NOAH (PBUH) BUILD AN ARK?
When the People of the Noah persisted in their denial despite all the warnings, Allah commanded the Prophet Noah (pbuh) to build a boat and to board it with the believers.
(I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed satan)
... Before them the people of Noah denied the truth. They denied Our servant, saying, “He is madman,” and he was driven away with jeers. (Surat al-Qamar, 9)
Build the Ark under Our supervision and as We reveal and do not address Me concerning the wrongdoers. They shall be drowned.’ (Surah Hud, 37)
He began to build the Ark and every time some nobles of his people passed him by, they ridiculed him. He said, “Though you ridicule us now, we will certainly ridicule you as you do us.” (Surah Hud, 38)
So when Our command came, and water bubbled up from the earth, We said, “Load into it a pair of every species, and your family – except for those against whom the Word was preordained – and all who believed.” But those who believed with him were only few. (Surah Hud, 40)
He said, “Embark in it. In the name of Allah be its voyage and its landing! Truly my Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Surah Hud, 41)
When you and those with you are settled in the ship, then say: “Praise be to Allah Who has rescued us from the people of the wrongdoers!” (Surat al-Muminun, 28)
And say: “My Lord, land me in a blessed landing-place. You are the best Bringer to Land.”’ (Surat al-Muminun, 29)
So We opened the gates of heaven with torrential water and made the earth burst forth with gushing springs. And the waters met together in a way which was decreed. (Surat al-Qamar, 11-12)
We bore him on a planked and well-caulked ship, which ran before Our eyes... (Surat al-Qamar, 13-14)
It was said, “Earth, swallow up your water!” and, “Heaven, hold back your rain!” And the water subsided and the affair was concluded and the Ark came to land on al-Judi. And it was said, “Away with the people of the wrongdoers!” (Surah Hud, 44)
We rescued him and the occupants of the Ark and made that into a sign for all the worlds. (Surat al-Ankabut, 15)
We left it as a sign. But is there any rememberer there? (Surat al-Qamar, 15)
PHOTOGRAPHS AND IMAGES FROM INSIDE NOAH’S ARK
In October 2008, I climbed the mountain with the Turkish team. At an elevation of more than 4,000 meters on Mount Agri I saw a structure built with plank-like timbers. Each plank was about 20 cm wide. I could see “tenons”, (proof of ancient construction predating the use of metal nails.)
We walked about 100 meters to another site. I could see broken wood fragments embedded in glacier, and some 20 meters long. I surveyed the landscape and found that the wooden structure was permanently covered by ice and volcanic rocks.
This section, frozen in ice, contains timber beams. The beams on the walls have hand-made dovetails.
This section is 5 meters high. Archeologists entered this section through a broken entrance and descended on ropes. There is a small door, 1 m x 0.5 m in size on one of this section’s all-timber walls. This door opens onto another section.
This section contains a few steps carved out of wooden logs. The team found a door in the ceiling of this section, showing the structure consisted of more than one floor.
