S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sad. By the Qur'an containing reminder... (1) In fact, the unbelievers are the ones who are boastful and quarrelsome. (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) And they were surprised that a Herald of Warning came to them from among themselves; and the disbelievers said, “He is a magician, a great liar!” (4) Maketh he the gods One God? Verily that is a thing astounding! (5) A group of the pagans walked out of a meeting with the Prophet and told the others, "Let us walk away. Be steadfast in the worship of your gods. This man wants to dominate you. (6) We have not heard of any such thing in the old religion. This is nothing but a fabrication. (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, have they the treasuries of the Mercy of your Lord, the Almighty, the Giving? (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) To the truth gave the lie aforetime Noah's people, and [the tribe of] Ad, and Pharaoh of the [many] tent-poles, (12) And [the tribe of] Thamud and the people of Lot and the companions of the thicket. Those are the companies. (13) Not one (of them) but rejected the messengers, but My punishment came justly and inevitably (on them). (14)
