S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Sad. By the Koran, containing the Remembrance -- (1) No, the unbelievers exalt in their division. (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) And they were surprised that a Herald of Warning came to them from among themselves; and the disbelievers said, “He is a magician, a great liar!” (4) Has he made the gods [only] one God? Indeed, this is a curious thing." (5) And their leading chiefs said: "Remain attached to your gods. There is surely some motive behind it. (6) We never heard of this in the former religion. It is nothing but an invention. (7) Hath the reminder been unto him (alone) among us? Nay, but they are in doubt concerning My reminder; nay but they have not yet tasted My doom. (8) Or have they the treasures of the mercy of thy Lord,- the Exalted in Power, the Grantor of Bounties without measure? (9) Is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, for them? So would they not just ascend using ropes? (10) But there - will be put to flight even a host of confederates. (11) The people of Noah denied before them, and [the tribe of] 'Aad and Pharaoh, the owner of stakes, (12) And [the tribe of] Thamud and the people of Lot and the companions of the thicket. Those are the companies. (13) Of all these there was not one who did not deny the messengers. So My retribution was justified. (14)
