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 [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) Nay, but those who disbelieve are in false pride and schism. (2) How many ancient generations did We destroy? (On facing Our torment) they cried out for help, but it was too late for them to escape. (3) Now they marvel that a warner has come to them from among them; and the unbelievers say, 'This is a lying sorcerer. (4) "Has he made the gods (all) into one Allah? Truly this is a wonderful thing!" (5) And their leaders went about, “Leave him and cling steadfastly to your Gods! Indeed he has a hidden objective in this!” (6) "We never heard (the like) of this among the people of these latter days: this is nothing but a made-up tale!" (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) Do they possess the treasures of the mercy of your, (Muhammad's), Lord, the Majestic and Munificent God? (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) [But] there it is: any and all human beings, however [strongly] leagued together, are bound to suffer defeat [whenever they refuse to accept the truth]. (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) Each of them denied the messengers, so My penalty was justified. (14)
