21:82 Solomon’s army

1 min read

And of the evil ones, were some who dived for him, and did other work besides; and it was We Who guarded them.

the literalists and the rationalists
take different views.

  • The former say that Solomon had power over
    supernatural being of evil, whom he compelled to
    dive for pearls and do other hard tasks.
  • Rationalists refer this to hostile unruly races whom
    he subjected to his sway.
    It was Allah’s power ultimately, Who granted him
    wisdom. Solomon tamed the Jinns with Wisdom.
