David shifted his capital to Jerusalem from Hebron. Solomon was born in Jerusalem. 


 To David We gave Solomon (for a son), how excellent in Our service! Ever did he turn to Us!                                                 (S: 38,V: 30) 


Holy Prophet (PBUH) told that Solomon’s mother had advised him, “Son don’t sleep all the night, for sleeping most of the night deprives a man of his good deeds on the Day of Resurrection.” Solomon was in the linage of Abraham through Jacob. 


We gave him Isaac and Jacob: all three guided: and before him, We guided Noah, and among his progeny, David, Solomon, Job, Joseph, Moses, and Aaron: thus do We reward those who do good.

(S: 6,V: 84) 


Bird’s Language: 


Like David, God blessed Solomon as well with special features and characteristics. God had blessed David and Solomon with the ability of understating the birds’ and animals languages We gave in the past knowledge to David and Solomon: And they both said: "Praise be to God, Who has favored as above many of his servants who believe!"

(S: 27,V: 15)


David had other sons as well besides Solomon but they were desirous of possessing the powers associated with the crown and the throne. Abu Solom, Solomon’s brother who was more influential, conspired and revolted against his father. This mutiny caused David to leave Jerusalem. Armies of the father and the son met in the battlefield and after a fierce combat and many casualties Abu Solom was killed and David returned to Jerusalem. 


David’s other son Odober, revolted when he had grown old and besieged the city. After these two revolts David after consulting his ministers enthroned Solomon, who after taking over as king forgave his brothers. 





Knowledge, learning, prophet hood and kingdom bestowed upon Solomon as a heritage. God had blessed him with understanding, reasoning, having righteous opinion, good judgment and power of decision. An incident of his youth is reported in the holy Quran, in these words: 


“And remember David and Solomon, when they gave judgment in the matter of the field into which the sheep of certain people had strayed by night: We did witness their judgment. To Solomon We inspired the right understanding of the matter: to each of them We gave Judgment and Knowledge; it was Our power that made the hills and the birds celebrate Our praises, with David: it was We Who did all these things.”

(S: 21,V: 78-79) 




Sheep of a poor man grazed the fields of a farmer. He complained against the shepherd and demanded damages. Case was referred to David. David gave the verdict that since the price of the sheep is equal to the crop grazed therefore the sheep be handed over to the farmer as compensation. 


When Solomon came to know of this decision he said to his father that in case of execution of his judgment one party would be entirely in loss and the other party would be benefited out of all proportions. And, with that he suggested that it would be much appropriate that the shepherd should cultivate the land till the crop is reaped and he should hand over the entire crop and the land to the farmer and in the meanwhile the farmer might possess the sheep and use their milk and wool till the crop is handed over to him.




A dispute of two women was brought before Solomon. Both were claiming to be the mother of an infant. One stated, “We both gave birth to our sons, one after the other. A wolf took away the child of the other woman and she has picked up my son declaring that wolf had taken my child and not her and this was her son not mine.” Solomon after listening to both sides of the story ordered to produce the child before him. Then, he handed over the child to the swordsman and told him to cut the child in two equal pieces from head to toes and both the pieces be given to both the claiming mothers. 


Upon hearing this strange decision the real mother of the child said in grieved and tortured tone, “No, no, let this child be with this woman, she is the real mother of this child.” Solomon thus identified the real mother and handed over the child to his real mother. 


After the death of David, Solomon sat on the throne and governed with justice and equity for forty years. He worked to improve the condition of his people and established the writ of law. He spent three years in curbing the conspiracies and rebellions. After making peace in the country; he strived to expand and consolidate his empire. Because of his good governance, viable policies and practical steps taken for the improvement of the condition of the common man, people in the country became prosperous, their living standards improved and there was abundance of resources, people had facilities and had food to eat.


Egypt to Euphrates: 


Era of Solomon’s government is considered to be the golden period. His empire extended from Euphrates to Egypt of world cannot offer a single instance matching that of the Solomon’ era whence so much progress, expansion and development was made simultaneously in one single empire. One of the most distinguishing characteristics of the Solomon was that God had blessed him with command over air. 


It was Our power that made the violent unruly wind flow tamely for Solomon, to his order, to the land which We had blessed: for We do know all things.                                                                                            (S: 2l,V: 81)

 And to Solomon We made the Wind obedient: Its early morning stride was a month ’s journey, and its evening stride was a month 's journey.

                                                                   (S:34,V1 12) 

Then We subjected the wind to his power, to flow gently to his order, whithersoever he willed.

                                                                        (S: 38,V: 36) 


Solomon when he desired could make journey of one month’s time in the morning and one month’s journey in the evening. 


Fleet of Ships: 


Solomon was the first ruler to have a fleet of ships. He was the pioneer in discovering the ways and paths for ships and fleets. Fleets of ships were used for transportation of the commercial goods. These ships were deployed with the best engineers. One of such fleet was named as Tarsusi Fleet. This fleet voyaged from the port of Rome to the western countries and completed its one voyage in three years. It carried gold, silver, ivory, and cattle besides other merchandises.



Quran tells us three things about Solomon. 


1. Wind was subjugated for him.


2. He could command a storm to stop. 


3. He could command a breeze to move at wind’s pace to help in covering the distances of many months in few hours. 


Copper mines: 


In his time excavation of copper from the mines was a known profession. He had copper mines in 50 sq. mile area. There were thousands of furnaces to melt copper ore and hundreds of thousands people worked there. There were factories to refine copper and iron from the raw ores. Copper and iron were the major export items of the country, which had made the country self sufficient in foreign exchange reserves. 


And We made a Font of molten brass to flaw for him; and there were Jinns that worked in front of him, by the leave of his Lord, and if any of them turned aside from our command, We made him taste of the penalty of the Blazing Fire.                                                              (S: 34,V: I2) 


His army had contingents of Jinns, men, beasts and birds. Every living thing obeyed him. Jinns were used to recover pearls and corals from the sea and constructed grand buildings for him. They also made utensils of copper for humans. Solomon had the power to assign any work, which he desired them to do. 




Solomon’s Palace:


Legends are that the Palace of Solomon was made of gold and silver bricks. Walls were decorated with gold and silver. Roofs were embedded with rubies and emeralds. The Royal Throne was decorated with pearls, emeralds, rubies, sapphire and turquoise.


On all the four comers of throne, such plants were carved from quartz that had transparent branches, which emitted colorful lights. Nests with birds in them were also there on those transparent branches. The sweet smelling wood of Oud used as incense in the court. (Presently this wood costs Rupees 560,000/- per kg.) Musk and ambergris were used as air fresheners. At the lower level from the royal throne chairs for the courtiers were kept in rows and files. When Solomon would come to the throne, with a crown on his head, the birds sitting in the nests of the transparent branches of the carved trees open their wings releasing aroma of musk and ambergris. Peacock decorated with dazzling colors and ornaments danced to welcome him. 


The wall of the city of Jerusalem was constructed in his times; cantonments and many new cities were built in his era. 


Dome of the Rocks: 


David had made his will that the construction of the Temple, which he could have not got completed in his life because of political and strategic conditions, be completed. Solomon desired to build a grand city around the Temple and that the Temple too be reconstructed. He wanted to construct the city and the Temple using stones of far away places. He ordered the jinns to bring beautiful large stones for the construction of the Temple and the city. This great Temple completed in seven and a half years. He placed the Ark of Covenant on a stone pedestal especially constructed for the purpose. 


They worked for him as he desired, making arches, images, basins as large as reservoirs, and cooking cauldrons fixed in their places: ”Work ye, sons of David, with thanks! But few of My servants are grateful!”

(S: 34, V: 13) 


For cooking the charity feasts pool-size pots were made, Besides constructing the Temple of Solomon and city around it, he constructed many other things some of them were quite fascinating at that time.

And of the evil ones (jinns), were some who dived for him, and did other work besides; and it was We Who guarded them. 


And there were Jinns that worked in front of him, by the leave of his Lord, and If any of them turned aside from our command, We made him taste of the Penalty of the Blazing Fire. They worked for him as he desired, making arches, images, basins as large as reservoirs, and cooking cauldrons fixed in their places: "Work ye, sons of David, with thanks! But few of My servants are grateful!

(S: 34,V: 11-13) 

            And before Solomon were marshaled his hosts, have Jinns and men and birds, and they were all kept in order and ranks.        (S: 27,V: I7) 


Thirty Thousand Laborers: 


Thirty Thousand men labored to construct the Temple of Solomon; about one hundred thousand people were deployed to sculpture the stones into beautiful designs. More than seventy thousand elephants and camels were used for the transportation of stones. Thirty thousand people were cutting the stones from the mountains. Many jinns were given the task of bringing precious stones and gems and were diving the sea for pearls. 


There were six hundred and eighty four columns embedded with precious stones, in the Temple and four thousand lamps were lit to light the Temple. Seven hundred sweepers were responsible for the cleanliness of the Temple. 


Wisdom of Queen Ant: 


Once Solomon, along with his army of jinns, men and animals, was marching to reach somewhere. In spite of the multitude of creatures of all sorts no one could dare to be undisciplined and were walking in their respective ranks and files. 


 When the army reached a valley inhabited with ants, Queen of the ants, seeing the great army ordered its subject ants to enter their burrows lest they be crushed under the feet of such a huge army unknowingly. 


And before Solomon were marshaled his hosts, of Jinns and men and birds, and they were all kept in order and ranks. At length, when they came to a lowly valley of ants, one of the ants said: ”O ye ants, get into your habitations, lest Solomon and his hosts crush you (underfoot) without knowing it." 

 So he smiled, amused at her speech; and he said: ”O my Lord! So order me that I may be grateful for Thy favors, which thou hast bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I may work the righteousness that will please Thee: And admit me, by Thy Grace, to the ranks of Thy righteous Servants."

                                                            (S: 27,V: 16-19) 


Solomon who could easily understand their language, picked up the queen ant and after placing it on his palm asked her, “Tell me, whose empire is vast, yours or mine.” The Queen said, “Only God knows who has a greater empire but I know this that at the moment palm of King Solomon is my throne.” 




Once Solomon was sitting in his court with all his decorum and grandeur, when he saw woodpecker absent. He said, “I don’t see woodpecker, if its absence is without any good reason I’ll punish him or slay it unless it comes with some sound reason.” 


It wasn’t long before that the woodpecker came and sated “I have brought a news about which you know nothing. There lives a Queen in Sheba in Yemen. God has given her everything. She has a great throne. She and her people are heliolaters, Satan be cursed that has mislead worship the sun instead of God.”


Kafab was the Capital of Sheba. People of that area constructed dams upon the springs to irrigate their lands. The biggest of all their dams was named Sad-e-karab. They had fruit laden Orchards and gardens. When the people of Sheba transgressed, the dam broke and they were destroyed. People of Sheba were rich traders but they were infidels and worshipped idols. Sun was considered to be the greatest of all gods. 


When Woodpecker stated the reason of its absence, Solomon said, “We’ll test your story. Just take this letter of mine to the people of Sheba and wait and see what do they say about this.” 


When the Woodpecker reached there with the letter of Solomon, Queen was leaving for her daily sun worshipping. Woodpecker dropped the letter in her way. She picked up the letter and after going through the contents, told her courtiers that she had been delivered a letter in a strange manner, which reads, “This is the letter from Solomon, in the name of Allah, the most Beneficent and Merciful. You should not be transgressing and come to me submitting to God.” 


After reading out the letter to her courtiers, she said, “You know that I always seek your advice in every important matter from you, you tell me what should we do in this regard. Her courtiers replied, “No need to be impressed of this, because we are strong enough to defend ourselves. As far any advice is concerned you may take any decision, you’ll find us with you.” 


She said, “The way this letter is delivered upon me requires us to be careful while we will be-dealing with Solomon. I think that an envoy with presents be sent to him.” 


When the ambassadors of Sheba appeared before Solomon and presented the gifts sent for him from Sheba, he said, “Take Your gifts back and tell your Queen that if she will not accept my message, I’ll come to Sheba with my armies and you people will not be able to combat and defend yourself from us.”


The emissaries upon their return narrated the who1e situation before the Queen. They related to her the grand scenes witnessed by them in the court of Solomon. They also told her that he not only rules over men but he also commands the jinns and animals. After listening to them she decided to go to Solomon in obedience and she set on the journey towards Jerusalem. 


Formula of Time and Space: 


Solomon, upon learning that Queen of Sheba has started with her journey to come to Jerusalem, said, “I want that the throne of Sheba be brought here before she reaches here.” 


One of the jinns said that he could bring that throne before the court is adjourned. Listing to that claim of the jinn a man, whose name in the legends is reported as Asif bin Burkhiya, rose to his feet and said, “I can bring it here before you could wink your eyes as I possess the Knowledge of the Book of God.” 


And with that Solomon saw the throne present before him. Seeing that throne in his court he told them to transform that throne out of recognition for the Queen so that he could see whether she recognizes it or not. 

When the Queen reached Solomon, he pointing towards that throne, asked her, “Your throne looks like this one?”  She said, “It does look like that.” And submitted, “We had learnt about your matchless powers and now after seeing all this is another eye opener for us, so we express our submission to you.” 


Jinn Engineers: 


Solomon had made the men and jinn engineers to construct a splendid palace that was fabulous by all standards. The passage of its entrance was paved with quartz slabs under which flowing water made everyone believe that he would be socked when he would walk through that passage. 


When Queen of Sheba was led towards the Palace and there she saw the water flowing in the courtyard, she tucked her skirts up. Seeing her doing that Solomon informed her that the water wouldn’t sock her because that was flowing under the transparent slabs of quartz.


This was a blow upon the false vanity of the Queen, her gaze dropped and she confessed before God, “O my God, I wronged myself by opting to worshipping gods other than You, I now believe with Solomon, in One and the Only God; the Lord of the- entire Universe.” 


Solomon was a great king and an exalted prophet of God. His every action spoke of prophetic attributes in him. He never established any relation with anything but knew that everything is because of God. 


To David We gave Solomon for a son, how excellent in Our service! Ever did he turn to Us! Behold there were brought before him, at eventide coursers of the highest breeding, and swift of foot; And he said, ”Truly do I love the love of good, with a view to the glory of my Lord, ” until the sun was hidden in the veil of night: ”Bring them back to me." then began he to pass his hand over their legs and their necks.

                        (S: 38,V: 30-33) 


Lost ring: 


Despite the fact that Solomon was an exalted prophet of God and ruler of a great empire, God tested him putting various tests upon him.


Once when he went to have a bath he handed over his Royal Ring to his maidservant. While he was bathing, the king of giants; Hamodlass came there and managed to get hold of the Royal Ring and alter wearing that ring and personifying to be Solomon, took over the seat of Solomon. Solomon considering it a test went away into jungle. On his Way to Jungle he felt hungry. On seeing a house on the wayside, he knocked at the door. The lady of the house refused to entertain him saying that her husband was not at home, he could have food when he would be around and if he still wished he could wait in their garden- Solomon went to the garden and lied down on grass under a tree and dozed off. In the mean time a snake came there and sat beside the sleeping Solomon to guard him. 


When the master of the house returned and saw this strange scene, he got curious and asked his wife. Who was that person sleeping in their garden? She told him that he had asked her for food and she had refused because he was not there and now he was there he might’ serve him. Husband come to Solomon and served him. Solomon impressed him so much that he offered him to wed his daughter. Solomon agreed and after staying there for three days he took his leave and went off. 


In the mean time, Hamodlass was enjoying the king’s role. Seeing him acting strangely, Solomon’s courtiers asked him to rehearse to them the verses of Torah, which he couldn’t. When they started reciting Torah, he made his escape good and vanished form there and on his way threw the ring in a river. 


Solomon to earn his livelihood went for fishing and caught a few fish. He brought it home. When his wife cut its stomach for cooking, she found the ring in the stomach of the fish. When she showed it to her husband, he knew the test was over and he returned to his palace. 


Seven hundred thousand dishes: 


Solomon enjoyed to serve the fellow beings with food and used to arrange Charity feasts for the people. Once he submitted to God that he wanted to give a party to all His creatures. God told him to foregt this idea, as it was beyond his strength. But, he insisted saying that he wanted to have the honor of serving His creatures only for once. 


 God allowed him and he started the arrangement of the feast and ordered the men and jinns to prepare for the banquet. He commanded wind to lift the table spread in the air so that every creature could have food from it. 


It is stated that he arranged seven hundred thousand large sized cooking pots each having food for more than a hundred persons. When the food got ready a fish emerged from the water and said, “I am told that you would be my host today, let me have food, I am hungry.” Solomon said, “Be my guest!” and ordered to give it food. The fish ate all that was cooked and said, “I just had one morsel of my food. God provides me three such morsels every day. I am hungry.” 


 Solomon felt humble and he prostrated before God and submitted, “Indeed it is Thou that can cater His creatures.” 


A prayer of Solomon, after he was made to go through a trial, is mentioned in the holy Quran:


  "O my Lord! Forgive me, and grant me a kingdom, which, it may be, suits not another after me: for Thou art the Grantor of Bounties without measure.                                                                            (S: 38,V: 35)


  Some say that once Solomon fell ill and was so serious that he had left no strength at all and when he was made to sit in his throne, he looked like a soulless body. After that when God made him healthy he expressed his gratitude to God and asked for his forgiveness and prayed for that rule, which remain particular for him alone. 


Purpose of that trial was to make Solomon understand that in spite of all his power and authority he had no control over anything whatsoever and he was required to bow before the holy will of God like a persevering prophet of God.




The incident of the demise of Solomon, as related in the holy Quran, in brief, is: 


 A large group of jinns was busy in constructing a building at the behest of Solomon. When Solomon’s last time approached, he knew that the jinns, who were working for him would stop so he leaned against his staff and breathed his last in that state. The jinns kept on working fearing that Solomon was watching them. After quite some time when the termite ate away the wood of Solomon’s staff, it gave way, and Solomon’s body fell to the ground, only then they knew that their master have left them. They said, “Alas, we couldn’t know, if we had the knowledge we could have saved ourselves from this labor, which we did fearing him." 


Then, when We decreed Solomon's death, nothing showed them his death except a little worm of the earth, which kept slowly gnawing away at his staff: so when he fell down, the Jinns saw plainly that if they had known the unseen, they would not have tarried in the humiliating Penalty of their Task.

(S: 34,V: 14) 


Haroot and Maroot: 


People of Israel had tempered with their holy books for petty worldly gains. They had altered many things in them. They had become so bold in this regard that they alleged that David and Solomon were not the prophets of God. They made many allegations against them. Against Solomon they said that he was a magician and using the powers ‘of his magic spells he became the king and all the men. jinns, beasts animals and birds obeyed him only because of his powers of sorcery. 


Israelis had started talking like that during his life. They had also developed this believe that the jinns have powers of divination. When Solomon happened to know of such misguiding gossips he acquired possession of all the satanic scrolls and buried them under his throne so that no man or jinn could ever dare to dig them out from there and issued this ordinance that if anybody was found using magical spell or believed that jinns have powers of divination, he would be executed and beheaded. 


Buried scrolls: 


When Solomon died the jinns took out those buried scrolls and spread this belief amongst the people of Israel that this was the knowledge of sorcery and magic, with which Solomon exercised his control over men, jinns and animals and winds. 


And when there came to them an apostle from God, confirming what was with them, a party of the people of the Book threw away the Book of God behind their backs, as if it had been something they did not know. They followed what the evil ones gave out falsely against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers Were, not Solomon, but the evil ones, teaching men Magic, and such things as came down at Babylon to the angels Harut and Marat. But neither of these taught anyone such things without saying. "We are only for trial; so do not blaspheme." They learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. But they could not thus harm anyone except by God ’s permission. And they learned what harmed them, not what profited them. And they knew that the buyers of magic would have no share in the happiness of the Hereafter. And vile was the price for which they did sell their souls, if they but knew! If they had kept their Faith and guarded themselves from evil, far better had been the reward from their Lord, if they but knew!

(S: 2,V: 101-103) 


Haroot and Maroot; two angels were sent down from the heavens and they taught the people of Israel that knowledge, Which was based upon the use of Attributes and Appellations of God used in Torah. Their taught knowledge was much superior to sorcery and had no side effects or repercussions like magic spells. When those angels had taught that knowledge to the people desirous of learning that knowledge they warned them, “Now that the reality have been made clear to you and you have observed the right and the wrong by yourself and if you will return to sorcery and magic afler learning all this, you will certainly be infidels because God has made the reality of everything clear to you. Just remember we, too, are a trial for you, now it is up to you that you follow the knowledge of the Book of God or still want to go for satanic magic with evil influence.” 


But, then Israelis like always prone to stray, started making use of that pure and sublime knowledge for fulfillment of their unfair and carnal desires. 


It must be remembered that nature and instinct are two different things. In our instincts, at mental level, we have a common semblance with other species like sheep, cow, dog, cat, pigeon, snake; whereas in our nature, we have our own distinct status and this status has been given to us by that Exalted Being Who is All-wise and Omniscient. No sane person can claim that animals do not have understanding and only man is versed with this faculty. The One Who is Far Above and Supreme to all the individuals of the universe has given intellect and understanding to the animals as well. And, in some aspects, animals are more wise and understanding than man. 


There are quadrupeds that have the ability of clairvoyance. Cats and dogs and many other animals can foresee the coming earthquakes and other calamities. Similarly man is given a quite a limited range of hearing whereas animals like dogs, cats, foxes, rats, whales and dolphins can hear the sounds inaudible for human ears. Similarly man has a limited power of sight where as eagle and honey bees have far wide vision of seeing things so much so that bees can see even the ultra violet rays. 


Many animals have Wisdom and conscious much refined than man, so much so that in many cases man has learnt from them. Ants and bees, for instance, live in colonies observing social laws strictly since eternity and man is still lacking in learning his lesson in this regard. We always see ants following a queue, whereas man has yet to learn this simple law of discipline and harmony. We are preaching conscientiousness and they perform a their duties without having any supervisors and standing upon them. 


The story of Solomon narrated in the holy Quran and other Divine Scriptures have not been related just to amuse us. Why should God try to amuse or impress us? Who we are? What are we good at? God wants us to learn from His limitless knowledge and advance like those who after equipping themselves with God gifted knowledge subjugated the world including its men, jinns and animals and forces of nature like winds and water. And provided comfort to their fellow beings using the godly knowledge. 


In this regard God has mentioned jinns and told us that even these invisible creatures can be subjugated and be commanded to perform duties after equipping with that knowledge, which has been termed as the Knowledge of the Book, provided that one could take the trouble of searching and striving to learn this knowledge from the Book.  Mentioning of woodpecker, it’s absence from the court of Solomon, coming with the news of Queen of Sheba and telling that they were heliolaters, taking Solomon’s message to the Queen; are not devoid of points of wisdom. 


Butchering thirty thousand heads of cattle: 


It is related that for cooking the meals of the army, thirty thousand heads of cattle were butchered daily, which included five thousand camels, five thousand bulls and twenty thousand goats and sheep. 


Once he went to Makka to perform pilgrimage and stayed in Makka till completion of the rituals of pilgrimage. There he told the leaders and chiefs of his people that an apostle of God would be born there with such and such qualities. He would be known far and wide and for generations to come. He would give equal rights to his relatives and aliens. Opposition would not be able to arm him.”



People asked him about the religion of that Apostle. Solomon answered, “Religion of Peace and Righteousness. Lucky would be he who would see his time and still luckier would be if he would believe him and have faith as are would he teach. Those who are present here should tell those who are not here that he will be the last of the chain of prophets and e leader of all the apostles of God. 


In the story of Solomon we are also invited to see that even the birds have the sense to tell that man is not doing the right thing like worshipping the sun. And, they can take the message of one person to another and act as emissary. 


In this story we are also told that in the army of Solomon there was a jinn who had the power to fetch the throne of the Queen of Sheba in a certain time, from Yemen to Jerusalem, which are about 1500 miles apart. 


We also learn from this story that reach and excess of man exceeds the powers of jinns, provided that he possesses the Knowledge of the Book. A man versed with that knowledge brought the throne of Sheba, practically in no time. God has stressed and emphasized upon this thing that mankind can benefit itself from that knowledge and there is no such condition as to be a prophet to be able to learn this fabulous knowledge. Every man has been given this faculty of learning the Knowledge of the Book, which has also been termed as the Knowledge of the Appellations, in the holly Quran. After learning this knowledge man ensconces on that seat of power which enables him to negate Time and Space as and when he desires. He can command the Space to wrap up and Time to stretch or shrink. He enjoys the power to influence the universe. 




If a person does not acknowledge this faculty on the pretext learn this science, that would not be correct, because of mentioning ‘ a man’ in this story of Solomon, God has made it abundantly clear that this ability is available for everyone provided that he could use his brain and think and search for it. Every human being is provided with the ability of making use of the knowledge disseminated by the prophets of God and can have access to the Unseen Realms. 


 God has related the basic laws of inventions in the holy Quran where David and Solomon have been mentioned. 



“We gave David and Solomon a knowledge that was directly inspired to them from God.” 


Inspiration whether it comes from a thing seen or heard is always from God. Prophets were given this knowledge through Revelation; for any thought coming to mind or any idea occurring in the mind, is also a form of knowledge from God. 


Different scientific inventions like airplanes, telephones, Television, wireless, computers, mass destruction weapons and laser beams were made possible only when an idea or a thought to discover or invent those things came to the minds of their inventors, or to say, it was inspired to them from God. Existence of any thing is not possible if knowledge about that thing does not exist. It is one of the laws of God that if a man starts searching for a thing wholeheartedly, making it the sole purpose of his life and exerting himself to his full potentials and all abilities that he have, then he is bound to achieve that thing. It is the tradition of God that always persisted, is still persisting and will always remain.
