88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Sad. By the renowned Qur'an, (1) In fact, the disbelievers are in false pride and opposition. (2) How many did We destroy before them of the generations, then they cried while the time of escaping had passed away. (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) Has he made the gods one single God? This is truly astounding.” (5) The chiefs among them go about, exhorting: Go and be staunch to your gods! Lo! this is a thing designed. (6) We have not heard this in the religious community close to our time. This is nothing but a fabrication. (7) What! Upon him alone from among all of us should a [divine] reminder have been bestowed from on high?" Nay, but it is My Own reminder that they distrust! Nay, they have not yet tasted the suffering which I do impose! (8) Or, have they the treasuries of the Mercy of your Lord, the Almighty, the Giving? (9) Or is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, theirs? Then let them climb up the ladders (to the heavens). (10) [They are but] soldiers [who will be] defeated there among the companies [of disbelievers]. (11) Cried lies before them the people of Noah, and Ad, and Pharaoh, he of the tent-pegs, (12) And the tribe of Thamud, and the people of Lut, and the People of the Woods; these are the groups. (13) There was not one of those that did not belie the Messengers. Therefore, My retribution was realized. (14)
