S (Saad)
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, and by the Qur'an full of exhortation! (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 ancient generations did We destroy? (On facing Our torment) they cried out for help, but it was too late for them to escape. (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) Maketh he the gods One Allah? Lo! that is an astounding thing. (5) And the chief persons of them break forth, saying: Go and steadily adhere to your gods; this is most surely a thing sought after. (6) “We never heard of this even in Christianity, the latest religion; this is clearly a newly fabricated matter.” (7) What, out of all of us, has the Remembrance been sent down to him (Prophet Muhammad)' No, they are doubtful about My Remembrance, no, they have not yet tasted My punishment. (8) Or, are with them the treasures of the mercy of thy Lord, the Bestower? (9) Or do they possess the dominion of the heavens and the earth and of all that is in between them? If so, let them ascend the heights of the realm of causation and see! (10) Here there is a host of the confederates only to be defeated. (11) The people of Noah denied before them, and [the tribe of] 'Aad and Pharaoh, the owner of stakes, (12) So also did the people of Thamud, Lot, and the dwellers of the Forest. (13) Of all these there was not one who did not deny the messengers. So My retribution was justified. (14)
