Surah Saba Ayat 27 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (28 Jan 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[34].Surah Saba [Sheba]

Ayat 27. Say (O Muhammad ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) to these polytheists and pagans): “Show me those whom you have joined to Him as partners. Nay (there are not at all any partners with Him)! But He is Allah (Alone), the All Mighty, the All Wise.”

Tafseer of Surah Saba’ (Sheba) Ayat 27. Say: “Show me those whom ye have joined with Him as partners: by no means (can ye). Nay, He is Allah, the Exalted in Power, the Wise.” Wisdom and Power only belong to Allah. If you put your trust in other things, they will fail you, because they do not exist—as objects of worship. All else that you set your hearts upon will and must fail you, because they cannot in any way be brought into rivalry with Allah.

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Almighty Allah says, `I am the One who is most free from want of partners. He who does a thing for the sake of someone else beside Me, I discard him and his polytheism”.

[Muslim Book 042, Chapter 06, Hadith # 7114]. 

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Saba Ayat 27. Say (O Muhammad ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) to these polytheists and pagans): “Show me those whom you have joined to Him as partners. Nay (there are not at all any partners with Him)!” He who does a thing for the sake of someone else beside Me” here means to do something virtuous for mere show for worldly benefit, or to gain the reputation of being pious. “I discard him and his polytheism” means that “I nullify his good deeds and deprive him of the reward.” In this Hadith any virtue done for the sake of mere show has been likened to Shirk to make its viciousness and harm obvious. However, this is Ash-Shirk Al-Asghar, and those who commit it will not be forbidden access to Jannah. They will, after the punishment in Hell, ultimately enter Jannah. Whereas, those who are guilty of Ash-Shirk Al-Akbar and sheer Shirk will abide in Hell forever.
