Surah Saba Ayat 03 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (06 Jan 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[34].Surah Saba [Sheba]

Ayat 3. Those who disbelieve say: “The Hour will not come to us.” ( O Mohammed ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) Say: “Yes, by my Lord, it will come to you.” (Allah, He is) the All Knower of the unseen, not even the weight of an atom (or a small ant) or less than that or greater, escapes from His Knowledge in the heavens or in the earth, but it is in a Clear Book (Al­-Lauh AlMahfuz).

Tafseer of Surah Saba’ (Sheba) Ayat 3. The Unbelievers say, “Never to us will come the Hour”: Say, “Nay! but most surely, by my Lord, it will come upon you; – by Him Who knows the unseen, – from Whom is not hidden the least little atom in the heavens or on earth: Nor is there anything less than that, or greater, but is in the Record Perspicuous: The last two verses prepared us to realize the positions of Unbelievers in Allah’s great Universe. They are the discord in the universal harmony of Prayer and Praise. Their existence is due to the grant of a limited free will, the Trust which the Unbelievers have betrayed (see 33:72 and notes). But they must and will be eliminated: see verse 5 below. For there is nothing more certain in the world, physical, moral and spiritual, than that every cause, great or small, must have its corresponding consequences. The strongest emphasis and the most perfect assurance of certainty are indicated by reference to the authority of Allah Himself, the Ruler of the Day of Judgement. In the symbolic language of our own human experiences, a record is more enduring than memory: in fact (if properly preserved) it is perpetual. If, further, it is expressed in clear language, without any obscurity, it can always be read with perfect precision and without any doubt whatsoever. Apply these qualities, free from human defects, to Allah’s laws and decrees. They are inferring and enduring. Everything, great or small, will receive due recognition—a Reward for Good and Punishment for Evil.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) recited, “That Day it (the earth) will reveal its news (about all that happened over it of good or evil).” (99:4). Then he ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) inquired, “Do you know what its news are?” He was told: “Allah and His Messenger know better”. He said, “Its news is that it shall bear witness against every slave man and woman they did on its back. It will say: `You did this and this on such and such day.’ Those will be its news.”

[At-Tirmidhi, Hadith # 2429]

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Saba Ayat 3. “(Allah, He is) the All Knower of the unseen, not even the weight of an atom (or a small ant) or less than that or greater” It has stern warning for people that however they may try to hide their sins from others, they will not be able to save themselves from Allah and His system of accountability. This Hadith makes evident the perfect Omnipotence of Allah by telling us that He will bestow power of speech on the earth and it will bear witness to the acts committed on its surface. It’s very easy for us modern humans to understand with technology at its peak, as Hadith says `”You did this and this on such and such day”. Recording of each action via CCTV and other source of surveillance Camera recording, each and every move made by us, the earth bears witness against us it will say: `You did this and this on such and such day.
