S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sad. By the renowned Qur'an, (1) But nay - they who are bent on denying the truth are lost in [false] pride, and [hence] deeply in the wrong. (2) How many a nation did We destroy before them! (When they approached their doom) they cried out (for deliverance), but the time for deliverance was already past. (3) Now they marvel that a warner has come to them from among them; and the unbelievers say, 'This is a lying sorcerer. (4) What, has he made the gods One God? This is indeed a marvellous thing.' (5) And the chief persons of them break forth, saying: Go and steadily adhere to your gods; this is most surely a thing sought after. (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) Do they possess the treasures of your Lord, the Most Mighty, the Great Bestower? (9) Or, is theirs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and that which is in-between the twain? If so, let them ascend by steps. (10) The army is defeated as (were) the confederates. (11) The people of Nuh and Ad, and Firon, the lord of spikes, rejected (apostles) before them. (12) Thamood, the nation of Lot and the dwellers of the Thicket such were the confederates. (13) Not one (of them) but rejected the messengers, but My punishment came justly and inevitably (on them). (14)
