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, Full of Admonition: (This is the Truth). (1) No, the unbelievers exalt in their division. (2) How many a generation We destroyed before them, and they cried out when it was no longer the time for escape! (3) So they wonder that a Warner has come to them from among themselves! and the Unbelievers say, "This is a sorcerer telling lies! (4) They say, "Has he condemned all other gods but One? This is certainly strange". (5) And the elders among them went forth saying: “Go ahead and be steadfast in adhering to your deities. What is being said is with a design.” (6) We have not heard of this in later religion. This is naught but an invention. (7) Has this Exhortation been sent down among us only to him, to the exclusion of all others?” Nay, they are in doubt regarding My Exhortation, and are saying all this because they have not yet had any taste of My chastisement. (8) Or have they the treasuries of thy Lord's mercy, the All-mighty, the All-giving? (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 there have belied the people of Nuh and the 'Aad, and Fir'awn the owner of the stakes. (12) And the Thamud, and the people of Lut, 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)
