In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Sad [These letters (Sad etc.) are one of the miracles of the Quran and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. By the Quran full of reminding. (1) But the Unbelievers (are steeped) in self-glory and Separatism. (2) How many generations have We destroyed before them. They called: 'The time is neither of escape, nor safety' (3) They wondered that a warner had come to them from among themselves, and the deniers of the Truth said: “This is a sorcerer, and a big liar. (4) What! makes he the gods a single Allah? A strange thing is this, to be sure! (5) And the leaders among them went about (saying): "Go on, and remain constant to your aliha (gods)! Verily, This is a thing designed (against you)! (6) We have heard nothing like this in the latest religion. This is only his own false invention. (7) Has the message been revealed to him out of [all of] us?" Rather, they are in doubt about My message. Rather, they have not yet tasted My punishment. (8) Do they possess the treasures of your Lord, the Most Mighty, the Great 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) this host too, among other hosts, is bound to suffer defeat. (11) Before them there have belied the people of Nuh and the 'Aad, and Fir'awn the owner of the stakes. (12) And [the tribe of] Thamud and the people of Lot and the companions of the thicket. Those are the companies. (13) Each of them gave the lie to Messengers and My decree of chastisement came upon them. (14)
