S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Sad. I swear by the Quran, which is full of reminders of God, (that you are a Messenger). (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 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) Does he make all the deities out to be one God? This is indeed a strange thing." (5) And their leading chiefs said: "Remain attached to your gods. There is surely some motive behind it. (6) We have heard nothing like this in the latest religion. This is only his own false invention. (7) What, has the Remembrance been sent down on him out of us all?' Nay, but they are in doubt of My Remembrance; nay, they have not yet tasted My chastisement. (8) Do they have the stores of the mercy of your Lord, the mighty and munificent? (9) Or [that] the dominion over the heavens and the earth and all that is between them is theirs? Why, then, let them try to ascend [to God-like power] by all [conceivable] means! (10) They are only a small band among the defeated confederate tribes. (11) Before them the nations of Noah, Aad and Pharaoh, and he of the tentpegs belied, (12) and Thamood, and the people of Lot, and the men of the Thicket - those were the parties; (13) Each of them gave the lie to Messengers and My decree of chastisement came upon them. (14)
