Your reason for disbelieving the event of the Flood is as to be expected since you don't believe in God, who can do all things that the mind of man
To give you account of how the water disappeared according to the Revelation received by the Last Messenger of God, The Prophet Muhammad, and some
other details preceding the Flood.
It was said that the prophet Noah called unto his people to serve God alone and to worship Him only for a span of 900 years. The folks during his time
are idolaters and evil-doers and dismissed him as a mad man. He keep calling to them until it was time to board the ship but to no avail. They are
deaf to his calls, save the few believers who believed in him.
Here is the true story of Noah as told in the Holy Qur'an, a narration of the unseen things from the Almighty God, who is blessed forevermore.
011.025 And We sent Noah unto his folk (and he said): Lo! I am a plain warner unto you.
011.026 That ye serve none, save Allah. Lo! I fear for you the retribution of a painful Day.
011.027 The chieftains of his folk, who disbelieved, said: We see thee but a mortal like us, and we see not that any follow thee save the most abject
among us, without reflection. We behold in you no merit above us - nay, we deem you liars.
011.028 He said: O my people! Bethink you, if I rely on a clear proof from my Lord and there hath come unto me a mercy from His presence, and it hath
been made obscure to you, can we compel you to accept it when ye are averse thereto ?
011.029 And O my people! I ask of you no wealth therefor. My reward is the concern only of Allah, and I am not going to thrust away those who believe
- Lo! they have to meet their Lord! - but I see you a folk that are ignorant.
011.030 And, O my people! who would deliver me from Allah if I thrust them away ? Will ye not then reflect ?
011.031 I say not unto you: "I have the treasures of Allah" nor "I have knowledge of the Unseen," nor say I: "Lo! I am an angel!" Nor say I unto
those whom your eyes scorn that Allah will not give them good - Allah knoweth best what is in their hearts - Lo! then indeed I should be of the
011.032 They said: O Noah! Thou hast disputed with us and multiplied disputation with us; now bring upon us that wherewith thou threatenest us, if
thou art of the truthful.
011.033 He said: Only Allah will bring it upon you if He will, and ye can by no means escape.
011.034 My counsel will not profit you if I were minded to advise you, if Allah's will is to keep you astray. He is your Lord and unto Him ye will be
011.035 Or say they (again): He hath invented it ? Say: If I have invented it, upon me be my crimes, but I am innocent of (all) that ye commit.
011.036 And it was inspired in Noah, (saying): No-one of thy folk will believe save him who hath believed already. Be not distressed because of what
011.037 Build the ship under Our eyes and by Our inspiration, and speak not unto Me on behalf of those who do wrong. Lo! they will be drowned.
011.038 And he was building the ship, and every time that chieftains of his people passed him, they made mock of him. He said: Though ye make mock of
Us, yet We mock at you even as ye mock;
011.039 And ye shall know to whom a punishment that will confound him cometh, and upon whom a lasting doom will fall.
011.040 (Thus it was) till, when Our commandment came to pass and the oven gushed forth water, We said: Load therein two of every kind, a pair (the
male and female), and thy household, save him against whom the word hath gone forth already, and those who believe. And but a few were they who
believed with him.
011.041 And he said: Embark therein! In the name of Allah be its course and its mooring. Lo! my Lord is Forgiving, Merciful.
011.042 And it sailed with them amid waves like mountains, and Noah cried unto his son - and he was standing aloof - O my son! Come ride with us, and
be not with the disbelievers.
011.043 He said: I shall betake me to some mountain that will save me from the water. (Noah) said: This day there is none that saveth from the
commandment of Allah save him on whom He hath had mercy. And the wave came in between them, so he was among the drowned.
011.044 And it was said: O earth! Swallow thy water and, O sky! be cleared of clouds! And the water was made to subside. And the commandment was
fulfilled. And it (the ship) came to rest upon (the mount) Al-Judi and it was said: A far removal for wrongdoing folk!
011.045 And Noah cried unto his Lord and said: My Lord! Lo! my son is of my household! Surely Thy promise is the truth and Thou are the Most Just of
011.046 He said: O Noah! Lo! he is not of thy household; lo! he is of evil conduct, so ask not of Me that whereof thou hast no knowledge. I admonish
thee lest thou be among the ignorant.
011.047 He said: My Lord! Lo! in Thee do I seek refuge (from the sin) that I should ask of Thee that whereof I have no knowledge. Unless Thou forgive
me and have mercy on me I shall be among the lost.
011.048 It was said (unto him): O Noah! Go thou down (from the mountain) with peace from Us and blessings upon thee and some nations (that will
spring) from those with thee. (There will be other) nations unto whom We shall give enjoyment a long while and then a painful doom from Us will
011.049 This is of the tidings of the Unseen which We inspire in thee (Muhammad). Thou thyself knewest it not, nor did thy folk (know it) before this.
Then have patience. Lo! the sequel is for those who ward off (evil).
054.009 The folk of Noah denied before them, yea, they denied Our slave and said: A madman; and he was repulsed.
011.116 If only there had been among the generations before you men possessing a remnant (of good sense) to warn (their people) from corruption in the
earth, as did a few of those whom We saved from them! The wrong-doers followed that by which they were made sapless, and were guilty.
How can you not believe in God?
002.028 How disbelieve ye in Allah when ye were dead and He gave life to you! Then He will give you death, then life again, and then unto Him ye will
025.003 Yet they choose beside Him other gods who create naught but are themselves created, and possess not hurt nor profit for themselves, and
possess not death nor life, nor power to raise the dead.
