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
Sad. By the Qur'an containing reminder... (1) Nay, but those who disbelieve are in false pride and schism. (2) Many a generation We did destroy before them thereupon they cried out whereas it is not the time to escape! (3) They were surprised that one of them had come to them as warner; and the unbelievers said: "He is a deceiving sorcerer. (4) "Has he made the aliha (gods) (all) into One Ilah (God - Allah). Verily, this is a curious thing!" (5) And the Council of them depart, saying 'Go! Be steadfast to your gods; this is a thing to be desired. (6) We never heard of this in the former religion. It is nothing but an invention. (7) "What! has the Message been sent to him - (Of all persons) among us?"... but they are in doubt concerning My (Own) Message! Nay, they have not yet tasted My Punishment! (8) Or do they have the depositories of the mercy of your Lord, the Exalted in Might, the Bestower? (9) Do they own the heavens and the earth and all that is between them? Let them try on their own to block (the ways of heavens so that Our revelations cannot come to you). (10) (As they denied Allah's Message) they will be a defeated host like the confederates of the old times (who were defeated). (11) Cried lies before them the people of Noah, and Ad, and Pharaoh, he of the tent-pegs, (12) and the tribe of Thamud, and the people of Lot, and the dwellers of the Wood -- these were the confederates. (13) Of all these there was not one who did not deny the messengers. So My retribution was justified. (14)
