The wisdom of Sulaiman Alaihe Salam

For the guidance of mankind, Allah honored four famous Prophets by revealing to them four Holy Books as under:

1) Taurat to Prophet Musa Alaihe Salam (Moses):

2) Zaboor (Psalms) To Prophet Dawood Alaihe Salam (David);

3) Injeel (Evangel) To Prophet Isa Alaihe Salam (Jesus);

4) Qur'an To Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (Peace Be Upon Him).

The commandments of Allah are contained in these books. The primary three books were for an earlier period. The Holy Qur'an is the last book of Allah and is for the guidance of entire mankind till the Day of Judgement.

Prophet Dawood eventually became King of his people. He had 19 sons. Each of them hoped to inherit the father's throne. Allah revealed to Prophet Dawood a few questions and their answers and commanded him to ask the questions to each of his sons. Whosoever answered those questions correctly, would inherit the throne of Prophet Dawood (A.S).

One day Prophet Dawood called all his sons, the scholars, and the chiefs of the tribes of his kingdom. He then asked these questions:

1) Which thing is closest (nearest) to man?

2) Which is the farthest thing?

3) Which two things are attached to each other?

4) Which the most awe-creating thing?

5) Which two things remain unchanged?

6) Which two things are always different?

7) Which two things are against each other?

8) What is the action and the result of which is good?

9) What is the action and the result of which is bad?

The sons of Prophet Dawood felt helpless and could not answer any of those questions. Then the youngest of the sons, Prophet Sulaiman (Solomon) stood up and gave the subsequent answers:

1. The closest things to a person is that the hereafter (Life and Death - joined may die any moment);

2. The farthest things is that the time which has kicked the bucket (which isn't to come back again);

3. The things that are attached to every other is the adult male body with the soul;

4. The foremost awe-creating is that the adult male body (dead) without soul;

5. The things which remain the identical are the sky and also the earth;

6. The things which are different are the day and night;

7. The things which are critical one another are life and death;

8. The action - the top of which is nice - is patience and forbearance at the time of anger;

9. The action - the tip of which is bad is haste at the time of anger.

Prophet Dawood obviously, was substantially impressed with these correct answers and appointed Prophet Sulaiman as his successor.

Thus it'll be seen that it absolutely was the supreme knowledge and understanding that made Prophet Sulaiman succeed his father and become the nice King Prophet
