Who helped Hz. Nuh (Noah) when he built the Ark?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

“But construct an Ark under Our eyes and Our inspiration...” (Hud, 11/37)

According to the expression of the verse above, Hz. Nuh (Noah) built the ship directly with the inspiration he received from God Almighty. This issue is perceived like that in all tafsir resources we have seen. (see Tabari, Razi, Ibn Kathir, Baydawi, Nasafi, Ebu’s-Suud Efendi, Fathul-Qadir, Alusi, the interpretation of the verse in question)

According to some scholars, what is meant by the phrase “bi a’yunina = under Our eyes” is the angels that were sent to help and protect Hz. Nuh. (Qurtubi and Shawkani / Fathul-Qadir, the interpretation of Hud, 37)

To sum up, we have not come across with the names of the angels that helped Hz. Nuh in our research regarding the issue. As it is stated above and according to the majority of scholars, Hz. Nuh built the ship directly with the inspiration he received from Allah.
