Translation

We sent Noah to his people. He said: "O my people! worship Allah! ye have no other god but Him. I fear for you the punishment of a dreadful day!

Tafsir

Verily (laqad is the response to an oath that has been omitted) We sent Noah to his people, and he said, 'O my people, worship God! You have no god other than Him (read ghayrihi as an adjective of ilaah, 'god', or ghayruhu as a substitution in its place [sc. instead of min ilaahin, 'any god'). Truly, I fear for you, if you worship other than Him, the chastisement of an Awful Day', that is, the Day of Resurrection.
