88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
SAD. I CALL to witness the admonishing Qur'an. (1) Verily those who disbelieve are in vainglory and schism. (2) How many generations We have destroyed before them! And they cried out when it was too late to escape. (3) It seems strange to the pagans that a man from their own people should come to them as a Prophet. The unbelievers have said, "He is only a lying magician". (4) Does he make all the deities out to be one God? This is indeed a strange thing." (5) And the chief persons of them break forth, saying: Go and steadily adhere to your gods; this is most surely a thing sought after. (6) We have not heard of this in later religion. This is naught but an invention. (7) To him of all of us has the Reminder been sent down?" They are still in doubt about My admonition; but they have not tasted My punishment yet! (8) Or do they hold the treasures of the mercy of your Lord, the Almighty, the Great Bestower? (9) Or is it that the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them is theirs? If so, let them ascend up with means (to the heavens)! (10) A very host of parties is routed there! (11) Before them, the people of Nooh had denied, and the tribe of A’ad, and Firaun who used to crucify. (12) and Thamood, and the people of Lot, and the men of the Thicket - those were the parties; (13) Of all these there was not one who did not deny the messengers. So My retribution was justified. (14)
