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 [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) Verily those who disbelieve are in vainglory and schism. (2) How many a generation have We destroyed before their time [for this very sin]! And [how] they called [unto Us] when it was too late to escape! (3) They were surprised that one of them had come to them as warner; and the unbelievers said: "He is a deceiving sorcerer. (4) What, has he made the gods One God? This is indeed a wondrous thing' (5) The chiefs among them go about, exhorting: Go and be staunch to your gods! Lo! this is a thing designed. (6) We have not heard of this in the last religion; this is surely an invention. (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) Or is it that they have the treasures of the mercy of your Lord, the Mighty, the great Giver? (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) [They are but] soldiers [who will be] defeated there among the companies [of disbelievers]. (11) The people of Nuh and Ad, and Firon, the lord of spikes, rejected (apostles) before them. (12) So also did the people of Thamud, Lot, and the dwellers of the Forest. (13) Not one of them but belied the Messengers, therefore My Torment was justified, (14)
