Is it true that Prophet Nuh’s son, Yam assembled some sort of glass conveyance/boat to protect himself against the flood?
Hafiz Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah) has mentioned this as the view of some commentators.
He then says, ‘This is sourced from Historical narrations [Israiliyyat], and Allah Ta’ala Knows best regarding the authenticity.’
(Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Surah Hud, Verse: 43)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
