88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
SAD. I CALL to witness the admonishing Qur'an. (1) Those who deny the truth are steeped in arrogance and hostility. (2) How many did We destroy before them of the generations, then they cried while the time of escaping had passed away. (3) They marvel now that, from among themselves, a warner has come to them. The unbelievers say: 'This is a lying sorcerer. (4) Has he turned so many gods into one deity? This is indeed a strange thing!" (5) And the eminent among them went forth, [saying], "Continue, and be patient over [the defense of] your gods. Indeed, this is a thing intended. (6) We have not heard this in the religious community close to our time. This is nothing but a fabrication. (7) Was the message sent only to him out of all of us?" In fact, they doubt My warning; in fact, they have not yet tasted My punishment. (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 lies between them, theirs? Then let them climb up the ladders (to the heavens). (10) (As they denied Allah's Message) they will be a defeated host like the confederates of the old times (who were defeated). (11) Even before them the people of Noah, 'Ad, the mighty Pharoah, (12) and [the tribe of] Thamud, and the people of Lot, and the dwellers of the wooded dales [of Madyan]: they all were leagued together, [as it were, in their unbelief:] (13) not one [was there] but gave the lie to the apostles - and thereupon My retribution fell due. (14)
