What does Sad mean in Surat al-A’raf?


Surat al-A’raf begins Alif Laam Mim Saad.

A question from a new mureed. Asked to know what is the short meaning of Alif Laam Mim Saad?

I heard Mawlana explained the first three as Allah, Sayedina Jibrail (a) and Sayedina Muhammad (s)…but can’t recall what Mawlana said about the last letter (Saad).

Please bless me with an answer.



Siddiq, and Allah knows best.
