Prophets of Islam
Which prophet did Allah order to build an ark?

Prophets of Islam

Among others, Noah and Moses were prophets of Islam.

Belief in the Prophets of Allah is a central part of Islamic faith. To have faith in the Prophets (or Messengers) is to firmly believe that Allah chose morally upright men to bear His message and pass it to humanity.

The Quran mentions twenty five prophets, In Arabic two different words are used, Nabi and Rasool. A Nabi is a prophet and a Rasool is a messenger or an apostle. The two words are close in meaning. Allah says in the Quran “And indeed we sent to every nation a messenger saying “Worship Allah and to shun the false deities. (Quran 16:36)

The single most important message of all Prophets to their people was to worship Allah alone and none else and to follow His teachings. All of them, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Jesus and Muhammad and others invited people to worship Allah and shun false Gods.

After a separation of several years, again the father (Prophet Abraham) and son (Prophet Ishmael) met. It was on this journey that the two built the Kaaba on Allah’s command as a permanent sanctuary; a place laid for the worship of Allah, to which direction people would their face when offering prayers, and make it a site of pilgrimage. It was here, in this same barren desert where Abraham had left Hagar and Ishmael earlier, that he supplicated to God to make it a place where they would establish the prayer, free from idol worship. There are many beautiful verses in the Quran describing the sanctity of the Kaaba and the purpose of its building.

Allah mentions in the Quran “And when we assigned to Abraham the place of the House: ‘Do not associate with Me anything, and purify My House for those who circumambulate it, who stand in prayer, and who bow, and prostrate themselves (all in prayer).’ And proclaim the Pilgrimage (Hajj) among people, and they shall come to you on foot, and on every lean camel. They shall come to you from every deep and distant mountain highways.” (Quran 22:26)

Allah instructed Noah to build the ark and passed judgement on the disbelievers in the form of a flood. Allah says in the Quran, “And construct the ship under Our Eyes and with Our Inspiration and address Me not on behalf of those who did wrong; they are surely to be drowned.” (Quran11:37)

Noah chose a place outside the city and far away from the sea to build his ark. The disbelievers mocked and laughed, making comments about the ship’s location, far from any water source. The disbelievers had no comprehension of the power and magnificence of Allah, so they could not understand why Noah would build a ship, on the top of a hill, far away from the ocean. They called him crazy and laughed out loud. The ship began to take shape and when it was finished, Noah patiently waited for the command from Allah.

“Until when Our Command came and the lowlands gushed forth, overflowing, We said: ‘Load it with two of each kind of animal (male and female), and embark your family, except against whom the Word has already gone forth, and those who believe.’ And none believed him except a few.” (Quran 11:40)
