Surah Saba Ayat 07 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (10 Jan 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[34].Surah Saba [Sheba]

Ayat 7. Those who disbelieve say: “Shall we direct you to a man (Muhammad ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) who will tell you (that) when you have become fully disintegrated into dust with full dispersion, then, you will be created (again) anew?

Tafseer of Surah Saba’ (Sheba) Ayat 7. The Unbelievers say (in ridicule): “Shall we point out to you a man that will tell you, when ye are all scattered to pieces in disintegration, that ye shall (then be raised) in a New Creation? This is a taunt against the Prophet, and it is applicable to all who preach the doctrine of a Future Life. How is it possible, say the Unbelievers, that when a man’s body is reduced to dust and scattered about, the man should rise again and become a new Creation? They add that such a preacher is inventing a deliberate falsehood or is demented.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said,  “Between the two Blowing of the Trumpet there will be an interval of forty.” The people said, “O Abu Hurairah! Do you mean forty days?” He said, “I cannot say anything.” They said, “Do you mean forty years?” He said, “I cannot say anything.” They said, “Do you mean forty months?” He said, “I cannot say anything. The Prophet ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) added: Everything of the human body will perish except the last coccyx bone (end part of the spinal cord), and from that bone Allah will reconstruct the whole body. Then Allah will send down water from the sky and people will grow like green vegetables’.”

[Al-Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 457].

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Saba Ayat 7. Those who disbelieve say: “Shall we direct you to a man (Muhammad ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) who will tell you (that) when you have become fully disintegrated into dust with full dispersion, then, you will be created (again) anew?”

  1. When Israfil blows the Trumpet the first time, by Allah’s Leave, all those who are in the heavens and on earth will swoon away, except him whom Allah will. This will be the first Blowing. Then, it will be blown a second time, they will become alive and will emerge from their graves. These Blowing are known as the `Blowing of Fainting and Rising’. As regard the interval between these two Blowing, the narrator of the narration, Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him), could not say anything when he was asked about it; as he himself did not know it. But in other narrations the interval has been mentioned as forty years.
  2. The earth eats away the whole body of humans except the bodies of the Prophets. However, only the end part of the spinal cord remains intact. How it remains intact is known to Allah, but from it mankind will be created again.
  3. Bodies will rise from the earth as vegetation springs out from the earth after the rainfall.
