Özet:H.h. Noah Excellency is one of the significations used commonly in Persian Literature, especially in Classical Persian Poetry. After Idris (Enoch), H.h. Noah Excellency became prophet at nearly 40 or 50 years old. Reported in the Quran he lived for nearly 950 years. H.h. Noah excellency is the first prophet sent for as a torment for his eponym for the first time. Throughout the ages, he called his eponym for the right way. But, they always neglected his callings. Among those who did not obey H.h. Noah’s callings, was his wife, Vahile and his son, Kenan. Upon the order of God, H.h. Noah built a ship, and when shipbuilding was ended, he settled a couple of every living animals and people who they obeyed to him on his ship’s board. When the flood started, those who do not believe in H.h. Noah were exhausted. In classical Persian Poetry, references were attributed to both H.h. Noah’s ship, and his life which lasted for 950 years and his faithless wife, Vahile, along with his son Kenan and H.h. Noah Flood. In addition, the verses where the tale of H.h. Noah Excellency is told in Quran were placed by Persian writers. H.h. Noah’s ship generally became the sign of shelter of peace and liberation. With his 950yearlife, Prophet H.h. Noah was accepted as the person with the longest life. In Persian Poetry, the term of omr-i Noah was used commonly as the sign of long life by Persian writers.
