سورة سبأ

34. Saba

Saba


Total verses: 54
Revealed in: Mecca

Translations:
- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)


The surah that mentions the gracious dwelling place of the blessed people of Sheba in Yemen, whom God whelmed away for their rejection of God’s blessings and then punished them for their ingratitude. It is named after the account of Sheba (Saba) in verse 15 ff. The Prophet is first encouraged through references to David and Solomon and how God favoured them. The disbelievers of Mecca are warned through a description of the punishment that awaits them on the Day of Resurrection. Two references are made to their accusing the Prophet of madness (verse 8 and verse 46) and this charge is thoroughly refuted.
The surah is also known as The City of Saba

SABA


يَعْمَلُونَ لَهُ مَا يَشَاءُ مِنْ مَحَارِيبَ وَتَمَاثِيلَ وَجِفَانٍ كَالْجَوَابِ وَقُدُورٍ رَاسِيَاتٍ ۚ اعْمَلُوا آلَ دَاوُودَ شُكْرًا ۚ وَقَلِيلٌ مِنْ عِبَادِيَ الشَّكُورُ ﴿١٣﴾
١٣ - وہ جو چاہتے یہ ان کے لئے بناتے یعنی قلعے اور مجسمے اور (بڑے بڑے) لگن جیسے تالاب اور دیگیں جو ایک ہی جگہ رکھی رہیں۔ اے داؤد کی اولاد (میرا) شکر کرو اور میرے بندوں میں شکرگزار تھوڑے ہیں .
[34:13] They made for him what he willed of elevated chambers, statues, bowls like reservoirs, and stationary kettles. [We said], "Work, O family of David, in gratitude." And few of My servants are grateful.
[Transliteration] Ya'maloona lahoo ma yashaaa'u mim mahaareeba wa tamaaseela wa jifaanin kaljawaabi wa qudoorir raasiyaat, i'maloo aala Daawooda shukraa, wa qaleelum min 'ibaadiyash shakoor
