S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Sad. CONSIDER this Qur'an, endowed with all that one ought to remember! (1) Those who deny the truth are steeped in arrogance and hostility. (2) How many a nation did We destroy before them!

(13) Not one of them but did deny the messengers, therefor My doom was justified, (14)
