S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most 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) Verily those who disbelieve are in vainglory and 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) And they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves. And the disbelievers say, "This is a magician and a liar. (4) What! makes he the gods a single Allah? A strange thing is this, to be sure! (5) And their leading chiefs said: "Remain attached to your gods. There is surely some motive behind it. (6) We heard not thereof in the later faith; this is naught but an invention. (7) To him of all of us has the Reminder been sent down?" They are still in doubt about My admonition; but they have not tasted My punishment yet! (8) Or is it that they have the treasures of the mercy of your Lord, the Mighty, the great Giver? (9) Or is theirs the kingdom of the heavens and earth and of what between them is? Why, then let them ascend the cords! (10) [But] there it is: any and all human beings, however [strongly] leagued together, are bound to suffer defeat [whenever they refuse to accept the truth]. (11) The people of Nuh and Ad, and Firon, the lord of spikes, rejected (apostles) before them. (12) And Thamud, and the people of Lout (Lot), and the dwellers of the wood; such were the confederates. (13) Not one of them but belied the Messengers, therefore My Torment was justified, (14)
