Saba, built in southern Arabia in the 11th century BC, was a great civilization.
The Qur'an relates the story of the Queen of Saba and the Prophet Sulayman in considerable detail.
However, there is another story in the Qur'an regarding this people, who appear before us in a violent act of destruction.
The oldest texts to refer to the People of Saba are the annual war chronicles from the time of the Assyrian King Sargon II. According to these inscriptions, Sargon mentions Saba as one of the states that pays tribute to him. This record is the oldest text giving firm information about the state of Saba.
Ancient texts that speak of the people of Saba say that like the Phoenicians they were a state that engaged in wide commercial activities, and that some of the most important trade routes in northern Arabia were in their hands.
The Sabaeans were known in history as a civilized people. The inscriptions of the Sabaean rulers frequently speak of "restoring," "endowing," and "building."
The Ma'rib Dam, the ruins of which have survived down to the present day, is a major indication of Sabaean technology. Thanks to that dam, a bright green world was built in the middle of the desert.
The capital, that benefited from the dam, was Ma'rib, which had grown wealthy because of its many geographical advantages.
The capital stood close by the Adhanah River. The Sabaeans made use of this and built a dam here as they were constructing their civilization and began irrigating the area. Agriculture prospered, and they were thus able to enjoy high levels of well-being.
The capital Ma'rib was one of the most beautiful cities of the time. The Greek writer Pliny who travelled in the area and had great praise for this land, spoke in his works of the way it was all so verdant.
The dam at Ma'rib was 16 metres high, 60 metres wide and 620 metres long. Calculations have shown that two wide plains on both sides of the city could be watered by means of it.
