S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Sad. By the Koran, containing the Remembrance -- (1) Nay, but the unbelievers are steeped in arrogance and stubborn defiance. (2) How many generations have We destroyed before them. They called: 'The time is neither of escape, nor safety' (3) Now these [people] deem it strange that a warner should have come unto them from their own midst - and [so] the deniers of the truth are saying: "A [mere] spellbinder is he, a liar! (4) What, has he made the gods One God? This is indeed a marvellous thing.' (5) And their leading chiefs said: "Remain attached to your gods. There is surely some motive behind it. (6) We heard not thereof in the later faith; this is naught but an invention. (7) "What! has the Message been sent to him - (Of all persons) among us?"... but they are in doubt concerning My (Own) Message! Nay, they have not yet tasted My Punishment! (8) Or, are with them the treasures of the mercy of thy Lord, the Bestower? (9) Or is theirs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and what is between them? Then let them ascend through [any] ways of access. (10) (As they denied Allah's Message) they will be a defeated host like the confederates of the old times (who were defeated). (11) To the truth gave the lie aforetime Noah's people, and [the tribe of] Ad, and Pharaoh of the [many] tent-poles, (12) and Thamood, and the people of Lot, and the men of the Thicket - those were the parties; (13) There was not one but belied the apostles, wherefore justified was My wrath. (14)
