Question: What does the name of the sura of the Qu’ran Saba mean?
Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
Thank you for your important question.
Saba or Sheba is the name of a place in Yemen from where heralded the people of Saba or Sheba who spoke a form of Old South Arabian.
The name was originally that of a man that then became the name of his tribe or the name of a place (Maani al Quran, Nahhas).
I pray this helps.
