S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Sad. By the Qur'an full of admonition. (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 (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) What, has he made the gods One God? This is indeed a marvellous thing.' (5) And the Council of them depart, saying 'Go! Be steadfast to your gods; this is a thing to be desired. (6) “We never heard of this even in Christianity, the latest religion; this is clearly a newly fabricated matter.” (7) "What! has the Message been sent to him - (Of all persons) among us?"... but they are in doubt concerning My (Own) Message! Nay, they have not yet tasted My Punishment! (8) Or have they the treasures of the mercy of thy Lord,- the Exalted in Power, the Grantor of Bounties without measure? (9) Or, is theirs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them? Then let them ascend by (their) means! (10) [But] there it is: any and all human beings, however [strongly] leagued together, are bound to suffer defeat [whenever they refuse to accept the truth]. (11) Before them the nations of Noah, Aad and Pharaoh, and he of the tentpegs belied, (12) And Thamud, and the people of Lut, and the Companions of the Wood; - such were the Confederates. (13) There was not one of those that did not belie the Messengers. Therefore, My retribution was realized. (14)
