Surah Saba Ayat 20 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (22 Jan 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[34].Surah Saba [Sheba]

Ayat 20. And indeed Iblis (Satan) did prove true his thought about them, and they followed him, all except a group of true believers (in the Oneness of Allah).

Tafseer of Surah Saba’ (Sheba) Ayat 20. And on them did Satan prove true his idea, and they followed him, all but a party that believed. Cf. 17:62, Satan out of arrogance had said, when he asked for respite from the Most High: “I will bring (Adam’s) descendants under my sway, all but a few.” This was now proved true by the Saba people. He had no power to force them. It was their own will that went wrong and put them into his power.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said,  “May he be miserable, the worshipper of the dinar and dirham, and the worshipper of the striped silk cloak. If he is given anything, he is satisfied; but if not, he is unsatisfied”.

[Al-Bukhari Book 04, Chapter 52, Hadith # 137]

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Saba Ayat 20. Indeed Iblis (Satan) did prove true his thought about them, and they followed him” This Hadith exposed person who prefers worldly things over life hereafter. “A slave of dinar and dirham and silk cloaks (clothes)” here means a person who prefers these things to the Divine injunctions and commands and strives day and night to amass worldly goods. Instead of worshipping Allah, he worships such things and is thus guilty of worship of others besides Allah, a condition which causes his ruin.
