S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Sad. CONSIDER this Qur'an, endowed with all that one ought to remember! (1) Verily those who disbelieve are in vainglory and schism. (2) How many generations We have destroyed before them! And they cried out when it was too late to escape. (3) And they marvel that a warner from among themselves hath come unto them, and the disbelievers say: This is a wizard, a charlatan. (4) What, has he made the gods One God? This is indeed a wondrous thing' (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 any such thing in the old religion. This is nothing but a fabrication. (7) Hath unto him the admonition been sent down from amongst us! Yea! they are in doubt concerning My admonition. Yea! they have not yet tasted My torment. (8) Or do they [think that they] own the treasures of thy Sustainer's grace - [the grace] of the Almighty, the Giver of Gifts? (9) Do they own the heavens and the earth and all that is between them? Let them try on their own to block (the ways of heavens so that Our revelations cannot come to you). (10) This is just one of the disgraced armies, that will be routed there and then. (11) Before them (were many who) belied Messengers, the people of Nuh (Noah); and 'Ad; and Fir'aun (Pharaoh) the man of stakes (with which he used to punish the people), (12) And the Thamud, the people of Lot, as well as the dwellers of the Wood, had denied. These were the hordes. (13) Not one of them but belied the Messengers, therefore My Torment was justified, (14)
