The story of the Hoopoe and the Prophet Solomon

There is no more beautiful than the stories of the prophets and those stories from which our young children learn a lot of useful and beneficial things, to make them benefit from them in their different lives and teach them many different and many lessons,

and today I tell you the story of prophet Solomon, Peace be upon him, and the story of the hoopoe on the site of Verses Quran and learn how to benefit from that story In the lives of our young children and how it affects them, how did our prophet Solomon not judge the hoopoe, but he waited to know the reason for his absence before he punished him?

The Prophet of God Solomon, may God Almighty endow him with a feature that no one of his creation could distinguish, which is talking with animals and birds, God mocked him until the winds transported him to the places he wanted, and the Prophet of God Solomon inspected all the animals in his kingdom,

and when the Prophet lost all His soldiers are in the kingdom, he found that the hoopoe does not exist, and the hoopoe missed a very long time, then he returned, and before our master Solomon asked him about the reason for his absence, the hoopoe hurried to clear himself quickly and said:

– I have seen what you did not see, for I brought you from the Kingdom of Sheba with great news, O Solomon and Solomon did not answer him, because he was angry, so the hoopoe continued saying,

[Indeed, I found [there] a woman ruling them, and she has been given of all things, and she has a great throne.] {Quran 27:23} 

Our master Solomon, peace be upon him, looked at and said to him:

[We will see whether you were truthful or were of the liars.] {Quran 27:27}

Our master Solomon sat down and started writing a message, and the hoopoe standing in front of him was trembling, And he does not know what the king is writing until our master Solomon finished and said to the hoopoe:

[Take this letter of mine and deliver it to them. Then leave them and see what [answer] they will return.] {Quran 27:28} 

He took the book with its beak and flew away. Balqis was asleep in her bed in her bedroom. The hoopoe came and entered the room through the window, and the book was thrown over it Balqis She took the book as she marveled as no one could enter her bedroom, and the guards were standing outside guarding her. She took the book and turned it in her hands, opened it and read it, She said,

[ O eminent ones, indeed, to me has been delivered a noble letter.” * “Indeed, it is from Solomon, and indeed, it reads: ‘In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful,” * “Be not haughty with me but come to me in submission [as Muslims].’ ” *, “They said, “We are men of strength and of great military might, but the command is yours, so see what you will command.” [Quran 27 V: 29-32]

She said,

“Indeed kings – when they enter a city, they ruin it and render the honored of its people humbled. And thus do they do. [Quran 27:33]

Tense, they said to her:

-What do you want us to do, Queen?

She Said:

[But indeed, I will send to them a gift and see with what [reply] the messengers will return.] {Quran 27:34}

And she sent to one of her senior men and said to him: I will send you to Solomon, with gifts, so see what he does, and know his strength. and came back to me and told me everything.

The Messenger of Belqis went out to Solomon carrying gifts and the hoopoe flew to tell our master Solomon everything, and he arrived before the Messenger of Belqis reached the kingdom of Solomon, peace be upon him.

And from the story of our master Solomon, we learn not to judge anyone before we first hear him, and we do not think the bad in others, just as consultation is a very important thing and consulting each other in many matters of life

“So when they came to Solomon, he said, “Do you provide me with wealth? But what Allah has given me is better than what He has given you. Rather, it is you who rejoice in your gift. [Quran 27:36]

So Solomon, peace be upon him, refused the gifts, and Belqis went to the palace of Solomon, peace be upon him, and there. Before Belqis arrived at the palace of Solomon, peace be upon him, Solomon, peace be upon him, asked his soldiers from mankind and jinn to bring him her throne. [Solomon] said,

“O assembly [of jinn], which of you will bring me her throne before they come to me in submission?” [Quran 27:38]

So he brought it to him who had knowledge from the book, as her throne was in front of Solomon, peace be upon him before Solomon blew his eyes.

“Said one who had knowledge from the Scripture, “I will bring it to you before your glance returns to you.” And when [Solomon] saw it placed before him, he said, “This is from the favor of my Lord to test me whether I will be grateful or ungrateful. And whoever is grateful – his gratitude is only for [the benefit of] himself. And whoever is ungrateful – then indeed, my Lord is Free of need and Generous.” [Quran 27:40]

And the moment Bilqis arrived, Solomon, peace be upon him, asked Balqis, “Is this your throne?”

” She said, “[It is] as though it was it.” [Solomon said], “And we were given knowledge before her, and we have been Muslims [in submission to Allah].” [Quran 27:42]

So Solomon, peace be upon him, said: This is your throne, so you astonished Belqis, and Solomon, peace be upon him, completed the process of dazzling Bilqis and entered it into a palace built above the water surface, and the entire floor of the palace was made of strong and unbreakable glass.

When she entered Balqis, she was afraid of water, so she lifted her dress so that it would not get wet, so Solomon, peace be upon him, said: This is glass, so she was astonished at Balqis and realized that she was in error and that she had wronged herself by worshiping a sun created by God, Lord of the worlds, and she declared her Islam.
