11:43 Noah said: This day nothing can save, from the command of Allah, any but those on whom He hath mercy!

The son replied: “I will betake myself to some mountain: it will save me from the water.” Noah said: “This day nothing can save, from the command of Allah, any but those on whom He hath mercy! “And the waves came between them, and the son was among those overwhelmed in the Flood.

The son of Noah who remained aloof in v. 42 is said to have been
named Yām (IK, Z) or Kanʿān (Z). From a spiritual point of view, his statement
that he would take refuge on a mountain can be understood to refer to the false
sense of security, stability, and permanence (symbolized by a mountain) that the
disbelievers, in their state of denial of God, assign to the world.
