S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Sad [These letters (Sad etc.) are one of the miracles of the Quran and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. By the Quran full of reminding. (1) But the Unbelievers (are steeped) in self-glory and Separatism. (2) How many a generation We have destroyed before them, and they cried out when there was no longer time for escape! (3) Now they marvel that a warner has come to them from among them; and the unbelievers say, 'This is a lying sorcerer. (4) They say, "Has he condemned all other gods but One? This is certainly strange". (5) And their leading chiefs said: "Remain attached to your gods. There is surely some motive behind it. (6) "We never heard (the like) of this among the people of these latter days: this is nothing but a made-up tale!" (7) Has this Exhortation been sent down among us only to him, to the exclusion of all others?” Nay, they are in doubt regarding My Exhortation, and are saying all this because they have not yet had any taste of My chastisement. (8) Do they possess the treasures of your Lord, the Most Mighty, the Great Bestower? (9) Is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, for them? So would they not just ascend using ropes? (10) They are only a small band among the defeated confederate tribes. (11) Before them there have belied the people of Nuh and the 'Aad, and Fir'awn the owner of the stakes. (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 gave the lie to Messengers and My decree of chastisement came upon them. (14)
