History of surah Sheba

It was called "Surat Saba'" because God Almighty mentions in it the story of Saba' who were the kings of Yemen and whose people lived in grace, prosperity, happiness and bliss. Their dwellings are gardens and gardens, but when they did not believe in grace, God destroyed them with a flood and made them a lesson for those who heed them.

The themes of the sura revolve around the Islamic faith, such as the monotheism of God Almighty, belief in revelation, confirmation of the resurrection, and reward. The sura also contains a correction of some values related to faith, the most important of which is the statement about judgment and the final decision of reward with God Almighty: it is faith and good deeds, not money and children, and that there is no protection from God's wrath, and that there is no intercession except by His permission, the Exalted.
