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
Saad, by the Holy Reading (Koran) of the Remembrance. (1) Nay! those who disbelieve are in self-exaltation and opposition. (2) How many a generation have We destroyed afore them, and they cried when there was not time of fleeing. (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 one single God? This is truly astounding.” (5) And the leader among them go away (impatiently), (saying), "Walk ye away, and remain constant to your gods! For this is truly a thing designed (against you)! (6) We have not heard of this in the last religion; this is surely an invention. (7) Can it be that he alone has received the Quran?" In fact, they have doubts about My Quran and this is because they have not yet faced (My) torment. (8) Or do they have the depositories of the mercy of your Lord, the Exalted in Might, the Bestower? (9) Or is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them theirs? Then let them ascend by ropes! (10) (As they denied Allah's Message) they will be a defeated host like the confederates of the old times (who were defeated). (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) Each of them gave the lie to Messengers and My decree of chastisement came upon them. (14)
