S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
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! those who disbelieve are in self-exaltation and opposition. (2) How many generations have We destroyed before them who cried (for mercy) when it was too late for escape. (3) They are surprised that a warner should come to them from among themselves. They say, "This is a magician, a great liar. (4) What! makes he the gods a single Allah? A strange thing is this, to be sure! (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 have heard nothing like this in the latest religion. This is only his own false invention. (7) Hath the reminder been unto him (alone) among us? Nay, but they are in doubt concerning My reminder; nay but they have not yet tasted My doom. (8) Do they possess the treasures of your Lord, the Most Mighty, 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) They are only a small band among the defeated confederate tribes. (11) The people of Noah, Ad and the dominating Pharaoh had rejected Our revelations. (12) And (the tribe of) Thamud, and the folk of Lot, and the dwellers in the wood: these were the factions. (13) not one, that cried not lies to the Messengers, so My retribution was just. (14)
