The Ark of Noah is a seafaring vessel that, as told in Christian, Islamic and Rabbinic tradition, was built by the prophet Noah (Nuh) to evade the Great Flood. Quran does not mention any details about the vessel or the flood itself only a general description of the incident is mentioned, on the other hand Bible gives a very detailed and dynamic picture of the incident including vessel's size and severity of the deluge.
