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. By the renowned Qur'an, (1) nay, but the unbelievers glory in their schism. (2) How many generations have We destroyed before them. They called: 'The time is neither of escape, nor safety' (3) And they (Arab pagans) wonder that a warner (Prophet Muhammad SAW) has come to them from among themselves! And the disbelievers say: "This (Prophet Muhammad SAW) is a sorcerer, a liar. (4) Has he made the gods one single God? This is truly astounding.” (5) And the elders among them went forth saying: “Go ahead and be steadfast in adhering to your deities. What is being said is with a design.” (6) “We never heard of this even in Christianity, the latest religion; this is clearly a newly fabricated matter.” (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, have they the treasuries of the Mercy of your Lord, the Almighty, the Giving? (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 but] soldiers [who will be] defeated there among the companies [of disbelievers]. (11) Before them (were many who) rejected messengers,- the people of Noah, and 'Ad, and Pharaoh, the Lord of Stakes, (12) And the tribe of Thamud, and the people of Lut, and the People of the Woods; these are the groups. (13) Each of them gave the lie to Messengers and My decree of chastisement came upon them. (14)
