Section 1

Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[Saba 34:1] All praise is to Allah – to Him only belongs all whatever is in the heavens and all whatever is in the earth – and His is the praise in the Hereafter; and He is the Wise, the All Aware.

[Saba 34:2] He knows all that goes into the earth and all that comes out of it, and all that descends from the skies and all that ascends into it; and only He is the Most Merciful, the Oft Forgiving.

[Saba 34:3] And the disbelievers said, “The Last Day will never come upon us”; proclaim, “Surely yes, why not? By oath of my Lord, it will surely come upon you - the All Knowing of the hidden; nothing is hidden from Him - equal to an atom or less than it or greater - in the heavens or in the earth, but it is in a clear Book.”

[Saba 34:4] So that He may reward those who believed and did good deeds; it is these for whom is forgiveness, and an honourable sustenance.

[Saba 34:5] And those who strove in Our signs in order to defeat – for them is a punishment from the severe painful punishments.

[Saba 34:6] And those who received the knowledge know that what is sent down upon you from your Lord is the truth, and it shows the path of the Most Honourable, the Most Praiseworthy.

[Saba 34:7] And the disbelievers said, “Shall we show you a man who will tell you that ‘When you have disintegrated into the smallest pieces, you are to be created again’?”
