Please advise if that is ok to name him in English version as Noah for I live in Canada.

Noah’s (sws) Age

The Holy Qur'an states that Noah (sws) preached for almost nine and a half centuries. I believe that average life and physical body traits of mankind has always been the same. A difference of five to ten years is understandable. But what the traditions report about the body structure of Awj b. Aunuq seems far beyond the reality. We can deny it because it has not been affirmed by the Holy Qur'an. But the life span of Noah (sws) has been recorded by the Holy Qur'an which cannot be questioned in any condition. Did all of his disciples live such a long life? Were they like us in their heights or was there some difference? I think that Noah (sws) lived almost five thousand years ago. Four or five thousand years have no significance in the long history of the world and the universe. It does not seem reasonable that five thousand years ago man lived as long as one thousand years. The Holy Qur'an does not say any such thing about any other Messenger of God.

Extent of Noah’s flood and today’s human population

My question is regarding the time of prophet Nooh.
In the talks of Ghamidi sb, he has often said that people have misunderstood the occurrence and the scale of the floods that took place at the time of prophet Nooh after the prophet delivered his message.

A common perception about the flood among Muslims is that it covered the whole world, while the atheists/ modern science tells that there are no proofs or evidence that such a large flood happened in the near history around the globe.

Ghamidi sb says in response that the flood took place in a small area where the prophet was and even only few animals of use were kept in his ship not all creatures.

Ghamidi sb has also said that todays all human beings are from Prophet Nooh ancestry. And that after Prophet Adam, all humans are from the lineage of prophet Nooh.

Now my question is that how is this possible that the flood took place in a limited area on limited people. But all other humans at that time were killed, as we are from Prophet Nooh’s lineage?

Kindly answer my question.
