Surah Saba Ayat 38 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (06 Feb 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[34].Surah Saba [Sheba]

Ayat 38. And those who strive against Our Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), to frustrate them, will be brought to the torment.

Tafseer of Surah Saba’ (Sheba) Ayat 38. Those who strive against Our Signs, to frustrate them, will be given over into Punishment. Cf. 34:5, where the argument was urged that human efforts to defeat Allah’s Plan will only bring humiliation to those who indulge in them. Here the argument is rounded off by the statement that such efforts, besides their failures, will land them in an abyss of punishment contrasted with the “dwellings on high” of the blessed ones.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Do not ask me unnecessarily about the details of the things which I do not mention to you. Verily, the people before you were doomed because they were used to putting many questions to their Prophets and had differences about their Prophets. Refrain from what I forbid you and do what I command you to the best of your ability and capacity”.

[Al-Bukhari Chapter # 92 Hadith # 391].

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Saba Ayat 38. “Those who strive against Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.)” To be unnecessarily inquisitive and create differences and confusion in the Injunctions of Allah and His Prophet ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) leads to destruction. The safest course lies only in following the Orders of Allah and His Prophet ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) without `ifs’ and `buts.’ Hair Splitting in religious issues falls in this category. It opens the door for chaos and conflict and paves the way for disunity and separation. May Allah give sense to the Muslim Ummah to abandon this road and take the Right Path which ensures peace and security. Let it be absolutely clear that the Right Path is one and one alone. There cannot be multiple right paths, it is one and singular. Once a community leaves the Straight Path, it is sure to go astray.
