S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Sad. I swear by the Quran, which is full of reminders of God, (that you are a Messenger). (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) It seems strange to the pagans that a man from their own people should come to them as a Prophet. The unbelievers have said, "He is only a lying magician". (4) Maketh he the gods One God? Verily that is a thing astounding! (5) A group of the pagans walked out of a meeting with the Prophet and told the others, "Let us walk away. Be steadfast in the worship of your gods. This man wants to dominate you. (6) We have not heard of this in later religion. This is naught but an 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) Or have they the treasures of the mercy of thy Lord,- the Exalted in Power, the Grantor of Bounties without measure? (9) Or is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them theirs? Then let them ascend by ropes! (10) Here there is a host of the confederates only to be defeated. (11) The people of Noah, Ad and the dominating Pharaoh had rejected Our revelations. (12) and the tribe of Thamud, and the people of Lot, and the dwellers of the Wood -- these were the confederates. (13) Each of them denied the messengers, so My penalty was justified. (14)
