Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) Full Story
Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.)
According to various narrators, Hazrat Dawud (a.s.) had another marriage when he had ninety-nine wives, and the son of that wife was named Hazrat Sulaiman (a.s.). He was the youngest son of Hazrat Dawood (AS). His eldest son name was Salum. Salum died at the hands of his paternal son during the lifetime of his father Hazrat Dawood (A.S.). At the time of Hazrat Dawud death, he had fifteen sons. Although Hazrat Sulaiman was the youngest among them, he was the most qualified among the brothers in terms of knowledge, intelligence and character.
This is why Hazrat Dawood (A.S.) placed Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) on the throne before his death. After the death of his father, Allah Taala gave him prophethood. Hazrat Sulaiman wore the miraculous ring of heaven before sitting on the royal throne. As a result of which he became possessed of infinite power. Gods and demons, jinn and fairies, animals and birds and even the air became obedient and obedient to his orders.
About this, Allah Taala has mentioned in the Quran: And when Hazrat Sulaiman succeeded Hazrat Dawud (A.S.), he said, O people! I have mastered the language of all living beings and Allah Taala has given me all the necessities of the world. Surely this is the manifest favor of Allah.
"O God! Forgive me and grant me a kingdom that will not be possible for anyone after me. Undoubtedly You are the Supreme Giver. (Surah Chowad: 35)
There was no comparison in the world for the magnificence and glory of Hazrat Solomon. And no king had more prestige and power like him. When he departed somewhere, the wind carried his throne in the void. Innumerable birds of various kinds flocked and flew over his head to provide shade. On his right were the human army and on his left. Jinn National Army. And the animals followed him. Apart from this, various animals were standing in front of him and showing the way. His companions also obeyed and obeyed the order if they wished. About this,
Allah Taala has said in the Quran: ' And when Hazrat Sulaiman succeeded Hazrat Dawud (AS), he said, O people! ' I have mastered the language of all living beings and Allah Taala has given me all the necessities of the world. Surely this is the open favor of Allah. “O Allah! Forgive me and grant me a kingdom that will not be possible for anyone after me.
Undoubtedly you are the supreme bestower. (Surah Chowad: 35) There was no comparison in the world for the splendor and glory of Hazrat Solomon. And no king had more prestige and power like him. When he departed somewhere, the wind carried his throne in the void. Innumerable birds of various kinds used to fly over his head in flocks and provide shade. On his right were the human army and on his left. Jinn National Army. And the animals followed behind him. Apart from this, various animals were standing in front of him and showing the way.
His companions could also walk into the void with him if they wished. Of course, Hadrat Sulaiman (A.S.) could not have gone without them if he was not with them. It has been described in some Tafseer that the throne of Hazrat Sulaiman (as) was so huge that thousands of human-demons, jinn-fairies and animals roamed under it.
It takes at least a month to travel from Yemen, which is located on the southern border of the Arab country, to Syria, which is located on its northern border, but Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) used to cover this long distance by air in just half a day.
In this context, the words of Allah in the Quran are commendable. Allah says: We subjected the wind to Solomon. His morning journey was a month journey and his afternoon journey was another month journey. I created for him a fountain of molten copper and assigned one of the giants to his service.
In the Quran Majeed, Allah also says that: We subjected the evil jinn to Solomon and made him masons. Those who fly
Whenever Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) received news of evil jinn or demons, he would catch them, bring them captive and throw them into the deep sea. And they would spend eternity there in captivity.
Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) had his great house built by these jinns. The length and breadth of this residence was seventy-two miles. The great palace was built of stone. It was decorated with gold and silver and various pearls on it.
Apart from this main residence of Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.), he also built a palace with many rooms suitable for living with many consorts. Each room is decorated with many precious stones. The size of this palace was not small. Its length and breadth were twenty four miles. His chambers housed his wives and maids.
His throne was six miles long and the same width. It was made of ivory, as well as precious stones like turquoise, emerald and pearl. The pillars of the throne were made of gold and silver bricks. Some artificial trees were constructed at some places of the throne. Its branches were made of gold and its leaves were made of green emerald stones. In the branches of those trees, numerous parrots and birds of prey were made of precious stones.
Under the throne, in front, to the right and to the left, at least a thousand kedaras were placed. Each of them was made of gold and silver. In that Kedara, the viziers, Nazirs, consorts and other honorable Amirs of King Sulaiman (A.S.) used to fast. As an ancient tradition of the royal court, two huge stone tiger statues were placed on the right and left of the royal throne.
Several artificial streams were dug from the side of the Shahi Mahal of Hazrat Sulaiman (as) and various beautiful flowers and fruit trees were planted on both banks. The trees were always adorned with beautiful flowers and fruits. A number of seats were made of precious soft cool stone to sit back and relax and enjoy the fresh air in between the trees.
When Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) used to go and sit on the throne, starting from the throne itself, all the speakers and other inanimate objects in the court room would tremble with fear. He never spoke to anyone without asking anything. After sitting on the throne, he first used to recite the holy Jabu. After that Shahi used to start court work.
The arrangement, management and grandeur of the Shahi Musafirkhana of Hazrat Sulaiman (as) was unimaginable. Countless people, poor travelers and guests used to eat and drink there daily. Every day, hundreds of thousands of large, large Degs would eat and drink.
Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) himself used to order the clouds to provide water for the passengers. And the clouds used to come every day and bring the necessary water for the kitchen from the sea. It can be heard that the food that was arranged for the travelers of Hazrat Sulaiman (as). At least 70,000 manas of salt were consumed daily. And every day, the rooster was sacrificed. Seven hundred giants carried his hair on their heads and threw it into the sea.
Hazrat Sulaiman (as) had a private life style but unimaginable. The king, whose conditions of lodgings were as mentioned, was of a very modest kind. He would not even touch the delicious and delicious food that was cooked in his house by spending from the Shahi tahbeel and he would not take even a single part of the treasury for himself and his family.
He used to pay for his family with the money he earned by sewing bags and selling them. He would buy jab with the money sold in the bag, grind it with his own hands and take it to Baitul Muqaddas Mosque and break his fast with it in the evening. He fasted throughout the year.
Hazrat Sulaiman, Queen Bilqis and Hudhud Pakhi
Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) assigned various tasks to the birds under his command. Hudhud Pakhi was responsible, when Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) used to travel with his army, he would sit somewhere on the road and if there was a lack of water, Hudhud Pakhi would find out where there was water nearby.
Once Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) went out on a journey with humans and demons, jinn and fairies. At one place on the way his vehicle landed on the ground, he prayed and ate and drank with his companions. At this leisure the Hudhud bird flew away from there and went elsewhere. Then due to special circumstances, he could not come back in time.
Meanwhile, as the water that was with Hazrat Sulaiman (as) ran out, great difficulty arose. Then there was a need for Hudhud Pakhi. But he was not found. He asked other passers-by, where has he gone? But no one could say.
Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) then became very angry with Hudhud Pakhi. He decided in his heart that if Hudhud bird is found, he will sacrifice it. After some time passed, suddenly Hudhud Pakhi appeared. Hazrat Sulaiman (as) asked the reason for his absence, where have you been all this time? Hudhud said, the reason for my absence is not disobedience.
When Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) wanted to know about that matter, Hudhud said, "Today I have brought you the secret news of Saba community." The details of it are that Saba community is named after a person named Saba.
They lived in Yemen. Then they started living in a city called Maarif. Over time that city is also known everywhere as Saba.
I met with a queen named Bilkis of the said Saba. This Bilqis has been ruling with skill over the descendants of Saba.
He has everything he needs to rule the kingdom. There is a huge and valuable throne in terms of value and size. The thrones of other kings were not so big and precious, not even the throne of Solomon (as).
Hudhud Pakhi also mentioned about the religion of Bilqis and said that I have come to know about their religious matters as well. I saw him and his people prostrate themselves to the sun instead of the formless Allah. Iblis has made the deeds of disbelief attractive to them.
They have gone astray from the right path. After listening to the words of Hudhud Pathi, Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) said, I have heard your words, now I am looking for him specifically. Then he wrote a letter in Arabic and handed it over to Hudhud. Then, without staying too close to him, go a little far away and listen to what he is talking about with his interlocutors.
Just as the Hudhud bird could speak human language, it could also understand human speech. It goes without saying that this is essentially a sign of Prophet Solomon (A.S.) prophetic power.
Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) told Hudhud, you will return here after reaching the letter to Bilqis. Since I will know the response through you after receiving this letter.
The construction of Baitul Muqaddas was completed and Solomon (AS) Tirodhan
Jerusalem Baitul Muqaddas is a world-renowned ancient traditional mosque. This mosque has increased its importance to the people of the world as the playground and center of many prophets and messengers of the world.
There is considerable disagreement as to who made it first. According to many people, during the era of Hazrat Dawud (a.s.), when the father of the Bani Israel fell ill, Hazrat Dawud (a.s.) started the construction of this mosque as a thank you to Allah, and after some work was done, Hazrat Dawud (a.s.) received instructions from Allah that the construction of the mosque should be done. be suspended; It will be completed by your son Solomon. Then in due course it was built by Hazrat Sulaiman (as).
Another group says that it was created long ago by angels. The proof of this is that many people have mentioned that after Hazrat Noah (as), Hazrat Ibrahim (as) used to sit in Masjid Al-Aqsa and worship.
The truth is that Masjid al-Aqsa was built long before the advent of Hazrat Dawood (A.S.). But then it was very small in size. And Hazrat Dawood (A.S.) renovated and expanded that old small mosque. Then the work of the father was successfully completed by his son Hazrat Sulaiman (AS).
Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) employed numerous jinn-fairies, giants-demons to complete the construction of this great mosque in addition to humans. The gods and demons brought huge white marble from far and wide to build the foundation of Ania Mosque.
The forty-yard high pillars of the mosque were built of white marble and other stones of various colors. And its roof was made of precious teak wood. The walls of the mosque are covered with gold leaf. The beauty of the mosque is enhanced by hanging a large number of jhar lanterns made of silver inside the mosque.
And instead of pouring oil in those lanterns, a kind of precious red color stone that scatters light called night gem is placed in its core. In the red light of all those stones, the hanging lanterns are illuminated and the entire mosque is lit up. In fact, all these rare stones were made easy to collect by the compulsion of Prophet Sulaiman (a.s.). Four doors were built around the mosque, named after them: (1) Babe Daoud (2) Babe Tuba (3) Babe Rahman and (4) Babe Ahmad. Among the four doors, the door called Babe Daoud is the largest. The doors were made of precious wood called ebony.
Long after Prophet Sulaiman ascended the throne, he was dethroned for some time by the will of Allah Taala through the deception of the demon Chakhra. Then again by the grace of Allah, he got the throne. He started and completed the construction of Baitul Muqaddas only after becoming king for the second time.
On the last day of the king life, he ordered his loyal devas, jinns, fairies and human community to start the construction of Baitul Muqaddas. They started working loudly.
Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) used to observe their work by leaning on his stick inside a glass dome near the mosque. In this, the gods and demons and jinns did not show any laxity in their work. After a few days had passed like this, Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) used to enter the dome on a daily basis to observe the work of the mosque.
At that moment Malakul Maut appeared there. Seeing him, Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) said, "Brother Malakul is dead!" Did you come here on a journey, no, come to take my life? Angel Azrael Sabine replied, O Prophet of God! God has sent me here to charm your soul. How long will you stay in this mortal world? Let us meet your dear friend this time. Upon hearing this word from the mouth of the angel of death, Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) face changed slightly.
He probably had the idea that he would be able to complete the construction of the mosque under his own supervision. Now he saw, it is no longer possible. Because of this, although his mind was a little disturbed, he said in a normal voice, Well, you complete your work. But I am very thirsty, will you give me time to drink some water?
Malakul Maut replied, O Prophet! Your time is up and now you have no right to enjoy anything in the world. Saying this, Malakul charmed the soul of Hazrat Sulaiman (a). The dead body of Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) was standing on a stick.
It was not misplaced. On the other hand, no one else could know about his death. For a long year it was standing in the same place. As a result of which the jinn - fairies and gods - demons thought that Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) was standing in the same way and observing their work. No one dared to come close and check the situation. They worked tirelessly and relentlessly and completed all the construction work of the mosque in just one year.
Meanwhile, a worm got into the stick made of wood of Hazrat Sulaiman (as) and ate it. As a result, the stick broke and the lifeless body of Hazrat Sulaiman (as) was looted. Then the demons and the jinn understood that their Lord had died. They rushed and carefully took out the dead body of Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) from inside the glass dome and buried him according to the rules.
Some tired demon said at that time that, Alas! We were exhausted from working so hard. If we had known earlier that he had died, then we could have left the hard work long ago.
There must have been an ulterior motive behind this death of Hazrat Sulaiman (a.s.) and his lifeless body lying like this on a stick for long years. 1: To disprove the misconceptions of the jinn race. The Jinns believed that they were aware of the unseen. But in fact no one knows the unseen except Allah alone.
The aforesaid incident clearly proved that the jinn race is completely ignorant of the unseen. Despite the death of Hazrat Sulaiman (as) a long year ago, not even a jinn could know it. If Ghaib knew, they would have left work and left.
Two: The jinn and demons fearing Hazrat Sulaiman (A.S.) worked diligently and tirelessly to build Masjid al-Aqsa. So in order to complete that task properly by them, Allah kept Solomon (A.S.) standing like a living man for a year despite his death.
As a result of which the jinn and the demons worked thinking that the king himself was standing in the same way observing the work; So there is no way to show any negligence in the work.
It was proved that the demons and the jinn did not know the unseen by thinking that Prophet Solomon (A.S.) was alive and acting according to the rules for a long year in fear of him.
