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
Sad. I swear by the Quran, which is full of reminders of God, (that you are a Messenger). (1) nay, but the unbelievers glory in their schism. (2) How many a nation did We destroy before them! (When they approached their doom) they cried out (for deliverance), but the time for deliverance was already past. (3) It seems strange to the pagans that a man from their own people should come to them as a Prophet. The unbelievers have said, "He is only a lying magician". (4) Maketh he the gods One Allah? Lo! that is an astounding thing. (5) And the leader among them go away (impatiently), (saying), "Walk ye away, and remain constant to your gods! For this is truly a thing designed (against you)! (6) We have not heard of this in the latest religion. This is not but a fabrication. (7) What, has the Remembrance been sent down on him out of us all?' Nay, but they are in doubt of My Remembrance; nay, they have not yet tasted My chastisement. (8) Or is it that they have the treasures of the mercy of your Lord, the Mighty, the great Giver? (9) Or is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, theirs? Then let them climb up the ladders (to the heavens). (10) The army is defeated as (were) the confederates. (11) Before them (were many who) rejected messengers,- the people of Noah, and 'Ad, and Pharaoh, the Lord of Stakes, (12) And Thamud, and the people of Lut, and the Companions of the Wood; - such were the Confederates. (13) Of all these there was not one who did not deny the messengers. So My retribution was justified. (14)
