88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Saad* By oath of the renowned Qur’an, (Alphabet of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.) (1) Verily those who disbelieve are in vainglory and schism. (2) How many a generation We have destroyed before them, and they cried out when there was no longer time for escape! (3) Now these [people] deem it strange that a warner should have come unto them from their own midst - and [so] the deniers of the truth are saying: "A [mere] spellbinder is he, a liar! (4) "Has he made the gods (all) into one Allah? Truly this is a wonderful 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) Never did we hear of [a claim like] this in any faith of latter days! It is nothing but [a mortal man's] invention! (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) Or, have they the treasuries of the Mercy of your Lord, the Almighty, the Giving? (9) Or, is theirs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them? Then let them ascend by (their) means! (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) 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) None of them was such that it did not deny the Noble Messengers, therefore My punishment became inevitable. (14)
