After Prophet Noah AS made dua’ to Allah Azzawajal to destroy all the corrupt people on Earth — Allah Azzawajal revealed to Nuh AS to build an Ark. And also out of Allah’s great wisdom he ordered that Noah AS build that ship in the middle of the desert — normally you would build it on the shore to put in the water but Allah commanded for the middle of the desert to build.
Noah AS started to build that ship with the guidance of Angel Gabriel, Gabriel came down and taught Noah AS how to build that Ark, how to put the wood together, to align the planks. Noah AS stayed 100 years building that Ark, and the people of Noah AS would come by and Mock him. They said
“Oh Nuh, did you become a Carpenter? We thought you were a Prophet!” And they would say “Oh Nuh, you built a ship in the middle of the desert over a Mountain with no water close? There’s something wrong with you!”
And Allah Azzawajal mentioned ““And as he was constructing the ship, whenever the chiefs of his people passed by him, they mocked at him. So nuh said: “If you mock at us, so do we mock at you likewise for your mocking.” Surah Hud Qur-an 11:38.
So Noah AS built the ship for 100 years and Noah AS would have to plant the trees, wait for them to grow, then cut that timber and put it into the Ark as in that area there weren’t many trees growing. It became a massive Ark, it’s narrated its 300 arms length, the arms length of Adam AS so that would be 1000 meters long, about 1km. And about 200 meters width, and about 100 meters high.
It was a 3 stories and it was a closed Ark because Allah Azzawajal told Nuh AS it was going to rain. And Allah Azzawajal said that He has left this ship as a miracle and a sign until the day of judgement and till today this Ark still exists.
