S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Suad, I swear by the Quran, full of admonition. (1) Nay, but the unbelievers are steeped in arrogance and stubborn defiance. (2) How many generations before them did We destroy? In the end they cried (for mercy)- when there was no longer time for being saved! (3) They wondered that a warner had come to them from among themselves, and the deniers of the Truth said: “This is a sorcerer, and a big liar. (4) What, has he made the gods One God? This is indeed a marvellous thing.' (5) And their leaders went about, “Leave him and cling steadfastly to your Gods! Indeed he has a hidden objective in this!” (6) We heard not thereof in the later faith; this is naught but an invention. (7) “Is the Qur’an which is sent to him, among us?” In fact they are in a doubt concerning My Book; in fact, they have not yet tasted My punishment. (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 lies between them, theirs? Then let them climb up the ladders (to the heavens). (10) But there - will be put to flight even a host of confederates. (11) Before them the people of Noah denied the truth, as did the 'Ad and Pharaoh of the Stakes, (12) And Thamud, and the people of Lut, and the Companions of the Wood; - such were the Confederates. (13) not one [was there] but gave the lie to the apostles - and thereupon My retribution fell due. (14)
