Yes, of course. But by bypassing the OT you frame the challenge in such a way as to exclude the worst barbarisms of the bible while still retaining those of the Koran.

Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
