S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Saad* By oath of the renowned Qur’an, (Alphabet of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.) (1) No, the unbelievers exalt in their division. (2) How many generations have We destroyed before them who cried (for mercy) when it was too late for escape. (3) They wondered that a warner had come to them from among themselves, and the deniers of the Truth said: “This is a sorcerer, and a big liar. (4) What! makes he the gods a single Allah? A strange thing is this, to be sure! (5) And their leaders went about, “Leave him and cling steadfastly to your Gods! Indeed he has a hidden objective in this!” (6) "We never heard (the like) of this among the people of these latter days: this is nothing but a made-up tale!" (7) What! Upon him alone from among all of us should a [divine] reminder have been bestowed from on high?" Nay, but it is My Own reminder that they distrust! Nay, they have not yet tasted the suffering which I do impose! (8) Or are theirs the treasures of the mercy of thy Lord, the Mighty, the Bestower? (9) Or is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them theirs? Then let them ascend by ropes! (10) Here there is a host of the confederates only to be defeated. (11) The people of Nuh and Ad, and Firon, the lord of spikes, rejected (apostles) before them. (12) and Thamood, and the people of Lot, and the men of the Thicket - those were the parties; (13) Of all these there was not one who did not deny the messengers. So My retribution was justified. (14)
