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 Most Merciful
Saad, by the Holy Reading (Koran) of the Remembrance. (1) Nay, but those who disbelieve are in false pride and schism. (2) How many generations have We destroyed before them. They called: 'The time is neither of escape, nor safety' (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) Does he claim that all the deities are [but] one God? Verily, a most strange thing is this!" (5) And the leader among them go away (impatiently), (saying), "Walk ye away, and remain constant to your gods! For this is truly a thing designed (against you)! (6) We never heard of it in the former faith. It is surely a fabrication. (7) What, has the Remembrance been sent down on him out of us all?' Nay, but they are in doubt of My Remembrance; nay, they have not yet tasted My chastisement. (8) Or, are with them the treasures of the mercy of thy Lord, the Bestower? (9) Or have they the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all between? If so, let them mount up with the ropes and means (to reach that end)! (10) (As they denied Allah's Message) they will be a defeated host like the confederates of the old times (who were defeated). (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 Thamud, the people of Lot, as well as the dwellers of the Wood, had denied. These were the hordes. (13) There was not one of those that did not belie the Messengers. Therefore, My retribution was realized. (14)
