Surah Saba Ayat 10 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (13 Jan 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[34].Surah Saba [Sheba]

Ayat 10. And indeed, Allah bestowed grace on Prophet Dawood (David AS) from Allah (saying): “O you mountains. Glorify (Allah) with him! And you birds (also)! And Allah made the iron soft for Prophet Dawood (David AS).”

Tafseer of Surah Saba’ (Sheba) Ayat 10. Allah bestowed Grace Aforetime on David from Ourselves: “O ye Mountains! Sing ye back the Praises of Allah with him! and ye birds (also)! And Allah made the iron soft for him; – Cf. 21:79-80, David had the gift of song and sacred music, and this is shown in his Psalms. All nature —hills and birds—sing and echo back the Praise of Allah. Iron or steel is hard stuff: but in the hands of a craftsman it becomes soft and pliable, and with it can be made instruments for the defense of righteousness. These, in the literal sense, are coats of mail, and defensive armors, and the manufacture of them is traditionally attributed to David.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said,  “There are two statements that are light for the tongue to remember, heavy in the Scales and are dear to the Merciful: `Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, Subhan-Allahil-Azim [Glory be to Allah and His is the praise, (and) Allah, the Greatest is free from imperfection)’.”

[Al-Bukhari Book 08, Chapter 75, Hadith # 415].

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Saba Ayat 10. “And indeed Allah bestowed grace on Prophet Dawood (David AS) from Us (saying): “O you mountains. Glorify (Allah) with him! And you birds (also)” This Hadith affirms that man’s actions carry weight. On the Day of Judgment, his actions will be cast into the Balance. At that time Allah will endow these actions with weight, or according to some scholars, those records which register man’s actions will be weighed. This is quite possible for the reason that Almighty Allah is Capable of weighing things without even their physical form. This discussion apart, when actions will be cast into the Balance, the formula mentioned in the Hadith, the utterance of which is very easy, will prove weighty. Every Muslim should make it a practice to repeat them frequently.
