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 Quran, full of admonition! (1) But nay - they who are bent on denying the truth are lost in [false] pride, and [hence] deeply in the wrong. (2) How many generations before them did We destroy? In the end they cried (for mercy)- when there was no longer time for being saved! (3) And they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves, and the disbelievers say: This is an enchanter, a liar. (4) What, has he made the gods One God? This is indeed a marvellous thing.' (5) Their leaders departed, saying, "Walk away! Hold fast to your deities. This is clearly a conspiracy. (6) “We never heard of this even in Christianity, the latest religion; this is clearly a newly fabricated matter.” (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) Do they possess the treasures of the mercy of your Lord, the Mighty, the Great Bestower? (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) This is only a small army out of the several armies that will suffer defeat here. (11) Before them (were many who) belied Messengers, the people of Nuh (Noah); and 'Ad; and Fir'aun (Pharaoh) the man of stakes (with which he used to punish the people), (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 rejected the messengers, but My punishment came justly and inevitably (on them). (14)
