S (Saad)
88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Sad, and by the Qur'an full of exhortation! (1) Nay, those who desbelieve are in false pride and opposition. (2) How many generations We have destroyed before them! And they cried out when it was too late to escape. (3) And they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves, and the disbelievers say: This is an enchanter, a liar. (4) Has he turned so many gods into one deity? This is indeed a strange thing!" (5) The chiefs among them departed saying: go, and persevere in your gods; verily this is a thing designed. (6) We heard not thereof in the later faith; this is naught but an invention. (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 treasuries of the Mercy of your Lord, the Almighty, the Giving? (9) Do they own the heavens and the earth and all that is between them? Let them try on their own to block (the ways of heavens so that Our revelations cannot come to you). (10) They are only a small band among the defeated confederate tribes. (11) Before them (were many who) belied Messengers, the people of Nuh (Noah); and 'Ad; and Fir'aun (Pharaoh) the man of stakes (with which he used to punish the people), (12) and Thamood, and the people of Lot, and the men of the Thicket - those were the parties; (13) There was none of them but called the apostles liars, so just was My retribution. (14)
