In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Saad* By oath of the renowned Qur’an, (Alphabet of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.) (1) Verily those who disbelieve are in vainglory and schism. (2) How many a generation We destroyed before them, and they called, but time was none to escape. (3) And they (Arab pagans) wonder that a warner (Prophet Muhammad SAW) has come to them from among themselves! And the disbelievers say: "This (Prophet Muhammad SAW) is a sorcerer, a liar. (4) Does he make all the deities out to be one God? This is indeed a strange thing." (5) And the elders among them went forth saying: “Go ahead and be steadfast in adhering to your deities. What is being said is with a design.” (6) Never did we hear of [a claim like] this in any faith of latter days! It is nothing but [a mortal man's] invention! (7) "Has the Reminder been sent down to him (alone) from among us?" Nay! but they are in doubt about My Reminder (this Quran)! Nay, but they have not tasted (My) Torment! (8) Do they possess the treasures of the mercy of your, (Muhammad's), Lord, the Majestic and Munificent God? (9) Or is it that theirs is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and what is between them? Then let them ascend by any (10) This is only a small army out of the several armies that will suffer defeat here. (11) Before them, the people of Nooh had denied, and the tribe of A’ad, and Firaun who used to crucify. (12) Thamood, the nation of Lot and the dwellers of the Thicket such were the confederates. (13) not one, that cried not lies to the Messengers, so My retribution was just. (14)
