Surah Saba Ayat 34 & 35 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (03 Feb 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[34].Surah Saba [Sheba]

Ayat 34. And Allah did not send a warner to a township, but those who were given the worldly wealth and luxuries among them said: “We believe not in the (Message) with which you have been sent.”

Ayat 35. And they say: “We are more in wealth and in children, and we are not going to be punished.”

Tafseer of Surah Saba’ (Sheba) Ayat 34 and 35. Never did Allah send a warner to a population, but the wealthy ones among them said: “We believe not in the (Message) with which ye have been sent.” Whenever the Message of Allah comes, the vested interests range themselves against it. Worldly power has made them arrogant: worldly pleasures have deadened their sensibility to Truth. They reject the Message because it attacks their false position. 35. They said: “We have more in wealth and in sons, and we cannot be punished.” Their arrogance is openly based on their worldly power and position, their family influence, and the strength of their man-power. Turn back again to the contrast drawn between the arrogant ones and those whom they despised, in verses 31-33.

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Abdullah bin Masud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I can still recall as if I am seeing the Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) resembling one of the Prophets whose people scourged him and shed his blood, while he wiped blood from his face, he said: “O Allah! Forgive my people, because they certainly do not know”.

[Al-Bukhari 09, Chapter 84, Hadith # 63].

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Saba Ayat 34. And Allah did not send a warner to a township, but those who were given the worldly wealth and luxuries among them said: “We believe not in the (Message) with which you have been sent.” It mentions the refined character and compassion of the Prophets which has an important lesson for those who preach righteousness. They should be always prepared to face hardships involved in inviting people to the right path and, instead of retaliation, forgive their audience and pray for their guidance. These noble qualities are extremely important for those who are devoted to preach religion.
