Surah Saba Ayat 15 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (18 Jan 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[34].Surah Saba [Sheba]

Ayat 15. Indeed, there was for Saba’ (Sheba) a sign in their dwelling place, – two gardens on the right hand and on the left (and it was said to them) “Eat of the provision of your Lord, and be grateful to Allah as he provided you fair land, and Oft­-Forgiving Lord.

Tafseer of Surah Saba’ (Sheba) Ayat 15. There was, for Saba’ aforetime, a Sign in their home-land – two Gardens to the right and to the left. “Eat of the Sustenance (provided) by your Lord, and be grateful to Him: a territory fair and happy, and a Lord Oft-Forgiving! This is the same city and territory in Yemen as is mentioned in 27:22: see note there as to its location. There the period was the time of Solomon and Queen of Saba. Here it is some centuries later. It was still a happy and prosperous country, amply irrigated from the Ma’arib dam. Its road or perhaps its canals were skirted by gardens on both sides, right and left: at any given point you always saw two gardens. It produced fruit, spices, and frankincense, and got the name of Araby the Blest for that part of the country. The land was fair to look upon: the people happy and prosperous: and they enjoyed the blessings of Allah, Who is Gracious and does not punish small human faults or weaknesses.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Any matter of importance which is not begun with Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah) remains defective.”

[Abu Dawud Hadith # 4840]

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Saba Ayat 15. “And be grateful to Allah as he provided you fair land, and Oft­-Forgiving Lord” There is another Hadith to the effect that every important work which is not started with the invocation “Bismillah” is devoid of Allah’s Grace, it is desirable to begin every good work with the Glorious Name of Allah and His Praise.
