In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Sad [These letters (Sad etc.) are one of the miracles of the Quran and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. By the Quran full of reminding. (1) Nay, but those who disbelieve are in false pride and schism. (2) How many generations We have destroyed before them! And they cried out when it was too late to escape. (3) And they marvel that there should come unto them a warner from among themselves. And the infidels say: this is a magician and a liar! (4) "Has he made the gods (all) into one Allah? Truly this is a wonderful 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 never heard of it in the former faith. It is surely a fabrication. (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) Do they possess the treasures of your Lord, the Most Mighty, the Great Bestower? (9) Or is theirs the kingdom of the heavens and earth and of what between them is? Why, then let them ascend the cords! (10) But there - will be put to flight even a host of confederates. (11) Before them, the people of Nooh had denied, and the tribe of A’ad, and Firaun who used to crucify. (12) And (the tribe of) Thamud, and the folk of Lot, and the dwellers in the wood: these were the factions. (13) There was not one but belied the apostles, wherefore justified was My wrath. (14)
