We have not created the heavens and earth, and what between them is, for vanity; such is the thought of the unbelievers, wherefore woe unto the unbelievers because of the Fire! (27) shall We treat those who believe and do good works the same as those who spread corruption in the land; shall We treat the pious the same as the wicked? (28) It is a Blessed Book that We have sent down to you (Prophet Muhammad), so that those possessed with minds might ponder its verses and remember. (29) And We bestowed on David, Solomon. How excellent a slave! Lo! he was ever turning in repentance (toward Allah). (30) When there were displayed before him, in the afternoon, well trained horses of the highest breed [for Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause)]. (31) Then he said: Surely I preferred the good things to the remembrance of my Lord-- until the sun set and time for Asr prayer was over, (he said): (32) "Bring them back to me." then began he to pass his hand over (their) legs and their necks. (33) Indeed, We tried Solomon and placed a body (of a child) upon his throne, then he repented. (34) He said, “My Lord! Forgive me and bestow upon me a kingdom, which shall not befit anyone after me; indeed only You are the Great Bestower.” (35) So We subjected the wind to him, so that it ran softly by his command wherever he wished; (36) And the devils -- the builders and divers of all kinds, (37) And others fettered in chains. (38) We said: "This is Our gift, so give or withhold as you wish without reckoning." (39) His reward will be nearness to Us, a good place to return to. (40)
