88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
SAD. I CALL to witness the admonishing Qur'an. (1) Nay! those who disbelieve are in self-exaltation and opposition. (2) How many generations have We destroyed before them who cried (for mercy) when it was too late for 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) Does he make all the deities out to be one God? This is indeed a strange thing." (5) Their leaders departed, saying, "Walk away! Hold fast to your deities. This is clearly a conspiracy. (6) We never heard of it in the former faith. It is surely a fabrication. (7) Can it be that he alone has received the Quran?" In fact, they have doubts about My Quran and this is because they have not yet faced (My) torment. (8) Or have they the treasures of the Mercy of your Lord, the All-Mighty, the Real Bestower? (9) Or [that] the dominion over the heavens and the earth and all that is between them is theirs? Why, then, let them try to ascend [to God-like power] by all [conceivable] means! (10) The army is defeated as (were) the confederates. (11) The folk of Noah before them denied (their messenger) and (so did the tribe of) A'ad, and Pharaoh firmly planted, (12) And (the tribe of) Thamud, and the folk of Lot, and the dwellers in the wood: these were the factions. (13) Each of them denied the messengers, so My penalty was justified. (14)
