Why Hazrat Noah A.S. collected a pair of each species on his Ark?

The stories of Prophets of Islam Allah had sent down a total of 124,000 Prophets for the guidance of mankind. These prophets were not sent down at one time, rather were sent down in different time periods. The very first Prophet being Adam (may Allah be pleased with him) and the last being Muhammad (PBUH).

The source of guidance for all the Muslims is Quran (the Holy Book revealed to the last Prophet) and Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH). Evidence from both sources reveals the name of few Prophets.

Also, both sources have revealed interesting stories of some of the Prophets. Here we will share some incidents and authentic stories of Hazrat Noah A.S.

After a great many years, Adam and Hawwa (may Allah be pleased with both) had children, grandchildren and also great-grandchildren.

A significant population resided on earth now. However not all were good, there were many disbelievers now. They did not carry out Allah’s order and did what they liked.

There was a need to educate them, to tell them that Allah Almighty had created them and He wants them to abide by his instructions.

Thereby one of the pious believer, Hazrat Noah A.S. (may Allah be pleased with him) was selected to preach Allah’s teaching and commandments.

But most of them were not ready to listen to Hazrat Noah A.S. (may Allah be pleased with him). As a result, Allah Almighty got angry with them and decided to punish them. Hazrat Noah A.S. (may Allah be pleased with him) was ordered to build a big Ark.

Hazrat Noah A.S. (may Allah be pleased with him) did not question Allah’s commandment and started selecting wood for building a great big ark. People started making fun of Hazrat Noah A.S. (may Allah be pleased with him) but he ignored as he knew it was important to fulfill Allah’s order.

When the ark was finally built, he placed food into the ark. He also collected believers to come along with him in the ark. Also, a pair of many kinds of animals was taken along.

Soon, the rain started. This started as a slow and present rain, ended up with a drastic flood!

‘And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ark to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female. Of the birds according to their kinds, and of the animals according to their kinds, of every creeping thing of the ground, according to its kind, two of every sort shall come into you to keep them alive.’ – Genesis 6:19–20 (Bible)

The rain grew heavier and heavier and there was water all around. The bad people got frightened and scared of the huge flood that had hit them.

Only the people in the ark were safe from Allah’s punishment! It is also called the smaller Qyamah. The only creatures survived that time were those who were in the Ark.

There are many stories about where Hazrat Noah A.S. Ark landed on the earth. We have covered this in detail in another article giving references to Bible and Quran.

The grave of Hazrat Noah A.S. is in Karak Jordan. We have published a picture of his tomb in the Jordan above.
