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, but the unbelievers glory in their schism. (2) Many a generation We did destroy before them thereupon they cried out whereas it is not the time to escape! (3) They were surprised that one of them had come to them as warner; and the unbelievers said: "He is a deceiving sorcerer. (4) What, has he made the gods One God? This is indeed a wondrous thing' (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) Never did we hear of [a claim like] this in any faith of latter days! It is nothing but [a mortal man's] 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) Do they have the stores of the mercy of your Lord, the mighty and munificent? (9) Or is theirs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and what is between them? Then let them ascend through [any] ways of access. (10) (As they denied Allah's Message) they will be a defeated host like the confederates of the old times (who were defeated). (11) The people of Noah denied before them, and [the tribe of] 'Aad and Pharaoh, the owner 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) Not one of them but did deny the messengers, therefor My doom was justified, (14)
