Indeed, We granted knowledge to David and Solomon. And they said ˹in acknowledgment˺, “All praise is for Allah Who has privileged us over many of His faithful servants.”1 Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And David was succeeded by Solomon, who said, “O people! We have been taught the language of birds, and been given everything ˹we need˺. This is indeed a great privilege.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Solomon’s forces of jinn, humans, and birds were rallied for him, perfectly organized. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
And when they came across a valley of ants, an ant warned, “O ants! Go quickly into your homes so Solomon and his armies do not crush you, unknowingly.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
So Solomon smiled in amusement at her words, and prayed, “My Lord! Inspire me to ˹always˺ be thankful for Your favours which You have blessed me and my parents with, and to do good deeds that please you. Admit me, by Your mercy, into ˹the company of˺ Your righteous servants.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
˹One day˺ he inspected the birds, and wondered, “Why is it that I cannot see the hoopoe? Or could he be absent? Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
I will surely subject him to a severe punishment, or ˹even˺ slaughter him, unless he brings me a compelling excuse.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

It was not long before the bird came and said, “I have found out something you do not know. I have just come to you from Sheba with sure news. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Indeed, I found a woman ruling over them,1 who has been given everything ˹she needs˺, and who has a magnificent throne. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
I found her and her people prostrating to the sun instead of Allah. For Satan has made their deeds appealing to them—hindering them from the ˹Right˺ Way and leaving them unguided— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
