88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Sad: By the Qur'an, Full of Admonition: (This is the Truth). (1) In fact, the unbelievers are the ones who are boastful and quarrelsome. (2) How many a generation have We destroyed afore them, and they cried when there was not time of fleeing. (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 turned so many gods into one deity? This is indeed a strange 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) We have not heard of this in later religion. This is naught but an invention. (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 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 is between them theirs? Then let them ascend by ropes! (10) Here there is a host of the confederates only to be defeated. (11) Before them (were many who) rejected messengers,- the people of Noah, and 'Ad, and Pharaoh, the Lord of Stakes, (12) And the Thamud, the people of Lot, as well as the dwellers of the Wood, had denied. These were the hordes. (13) Each of them denied the messengers, so My penalty was justified. (14)
