The summary of the Surah Saba:

 There were many objections raised by the disbelievers against the Prophet's message of Tawhid, the Hereafter, and his Prophethood in this Surah, mostly in the form of allegations, taunts, and mockery.

Lesson learned from Surah Saba:

  1. Allāh has knowledge of everything.  
  2. Dāwūd عليه السلام was blessed with the skill of being able to mould iron. It would miraculously soften for him.  
  3. Very few people are truly grateful to Allāh.  
  4. The people of Saba were blessed greatly by Allāh, but this changed dramatically when they were ungrateful.  
  5. Allāh is the only one who sustains us.  
  6. The Prophet ﷺ sought no recompense from the people for fulfilling his duty of prophethood.

أَفَلَمۡ يَرَوۡاْ إِلَىٰ مَا بَيۡنَ أَيۡدِيهِمۡ وَمَا خَلۡفَهُم مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِۚ إِن نَّشَأۡ نَخۡسِفۡ بِهِمُ ٱلۡأَرۡضَ أَوۡ نُسۡقِطۡ عَلَيۡهِمۡ كِسَفٗا مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَأٓيَةٗ لِّكُلِّ عَبۡدٖ مُّنِيبٖ
