034 – Al Sabaa – Sabaa

The chapter begins with praise and gratitude of Allah and criticises those who deny the Prophet and resurrection. The praise and gratitude of Prophets Dawud and his son Sulayman is followed by a discussion of the people of Sabaa. Their arrogance, greed and ungratefulness led them to be destroyed by a flood. They desired greatness at the expense of the smaller towns.
Two verses regarding the nature of Shaytan is followed by a series of challenges to those to those who opposed the prophet and his message with an assertion that divine success is belief in Allah manifested in serving humanity.
The chapter then orders the reader to think for himself and not go for a herd mentality when it comes to the prophet asserting that he was not mad. It ends with the terrifying consequences of rejecting Divine Guidance.
