We gave (in the past) knowledge to David and Solomon: And they both said: "Praise be to Allah, Who has favoured us above many of his servants who believe!" (15) And Solomon was David's heir, and he said, 'Men, we have been taught the speech of the birds, and we have been given of everything; surely this is indeed the manifest bounty.' (16) Solomon's hosts of jinn and men and birds, were all gathered together in his presence and were ranged in battle order, (17) till, when they came upon a valley [full] of ants, an ant exclaimed: "O you ants! Get into your dwellings, lest Solomon and his hosts crush you without [even] being aware [of you]!" (18) He smiled, and laughed at its words, and said: 'My Lord, inspire me that I should be thankful for Your blessing with which You have blessed me and my parents, and that I may do good works that will please You. Admit me, by Your Mercy, among Your righteous worshipers' (19) When he reviewed the Tair, he said: "How is it I do not see Hud-hud? Is he absent? (20) [If so,] I will punish him most severely or will kill him unless he bring me a convincing excuse!" (21) But he was not long in coming, and reported: "I have been around where you have not been. I come from Saba with positive news. (22) “I have seen a woman who rules over them, and she has been given from all things, and she has a mighty throne.” (23) “I found her and her nation prostrating before the sun instead of Allah, and Satan has made their deeds seem good to them thereby preventing them from the Straight Path so they do not attain guidance.” (24) “Why do they not prostrate to Allah, Who brings forth the things hidden in the heavens and the earth, and knows all what you hide and all what you disclose?” (25) “Allah there is no True God except Him, the Owner of the Great Throne.” (Command of Prostration # 8) ۩ (26) ۞ Said Sulaiman, “We shall now see whether you spoke the truth or are among the liars.” (27) Take this letter of mine and deliver it to them. Then leave them and see what [answer] they will return." (28) She (the Queen of Sheba) said: 'O Council, look, an honorable letter has been dropped to me. (29) It is from Solomon. It reads, "In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful, (30) (It says): "Do not act towards me with defiance, but come to me in submission." (31)
