Surely I found a woman ruling over them and she has been given of all things and she has a mighty throne.
I found her and her people prostrating themselves before the sun instead of Allah and Satan has made their deeds fair-seeming to them and thus turned them away from the Way (of Allah), therefore they are not on Hidayet.
How would they not prostrate themselves before Allah, who brings to light what is hidden in the heavens and the earth, and knows what you conceal and what you make manifest.
That Allah, He is the Lord of the Supreme Throne. There is no god but He.

(The Queen of Sheba) said: “Surely the kings, when they enter a country, ruin (overthrow) it, and humiliate its elites. And thus they do.
And surely I am going to send messengers with a present to them, and shall wait to see what the messengers bring back.
