 There was, for Saba, aforetime, a Sign in their home-land – two Gardens to the right and to the left. “Eat of the Sustenance (provided) by your Lord, and be grateful to Him: a territory fair and happy, and a Lord Oft-Forgiving!

This is the same city and territory in Yemen as is
mentioned in 27:22: see note there as to its location.
There the period was the time of Solomon and Queen
Bilqis.
Here it is some centuries later. It was still a happy and
prosperous country, amply irrigated from the Maarib
dam. Its roads or perhaps its canals, were skirted by
gardens on both sides, right and left: at any given point,
you always saw two gardens. It produced fruit, spices,
and frankincense, and got the name of Araby the Blest
for that part of the country.
