Nuh (AS) is one of the five special prophets chosen by Allah (SWT). The others are Ibrahim (AS), Musa (AS), ‘Eesa (AS) and Muhammad (SAW). Nuh (AS) lived for over a thousand years and his mission was unique: <<He said, ‘My Lord, I have called my people night and day, but the more I call them, the further they run away: every time I call them, so that You may forgive them, they thrust their fingers into their ears, cover their heads with their garments, persist in their rejection, and grow more insolent and arrogant. I have tried calling them openly. I have tried preaching to them in public and speaking to them in private.’>> [Surah Nuh 71:5-9].

His story shows how much he cared for his people despite their constant opposition and rejection for 950 years. To pursue a mission like this for such long time is no easy task. Even his own family rejected him. Therefore Allah (SWT) has made his life an example for the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his followers to emulate in patience, persistence, perseverance and concern for the people: <<He said, ‘My people, I am here to warn you plainly. Serve God, be mindful of Him and obey me...>> [Surah Nuh 71:2-3].

So how do we follow him in the 21st century Britain?
