So when (the envoys with the present) came to Solomon, (Solomon) said: “What! Are you helping me with wealth? What Allah has given me is better than what He has given you. Nay, you are exultant (boasting) due to your present.
Go back to them, so we shall most surely come to them with armies which they shall no power to oppose, and we shall most certainly expel them there from in abasement, and they will be humiliated.
(Solomon) said: “O chieftains! Which of you will bring to me her throne before they come to me in submission?
Ifrît of the jinn said: “I will bring it to you before you rise up from your place. I am strongly certain for it (for realizing it)”.
The one who had the knowledge from the Book (Khidr) said: “I will bring it to you before you blink your eye”. Then when (Solomon) saw it set in his presence (before him), he said: “This is a Virtue (blessing) of my Lord that he may try me whether I am grateful or ungrateful”. And whoever is grateful, he is grateful only for his own soul, and whoever is ungrateful, then surely my Lord is Self-Sufficient (Rich, Free of all needs), Honored (the Most Generous).
(Solomon) said: “Alter her throne that we may see whether she will have Hidayet or whether she will not have Hidayet”.
So when she came in, it was said (to her): “Was your throne like this”? She said: “It is as though it was it”. And (Solomon said) “we were given the knowledge before it and we became Muslims (submitted to Allah)”.
And what she worshipped besides Allah prevented her; surely she was of a disbelieving people.
It was said to her: “Enter the palace.” When she saw it, she deemed it to be a deep water, and bared her legs (tucked up her skirts). (Solomon) said: “It is a palace, made smooth, brilliant cut glass”. (The Queen of Sheba) said: “My Lord! Verily I have wronged my soul and I submitted to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds along with Solomon”.
