عنوان مقاله [English]
During his reign, Solomon (A.S.) enjoyed many blessings such as superior judgment, great rule, understanding the language of animals, diversity and multiplicity of armies, serving jinns, conquering winds, melting copper and a magnificent palace, and so on. On the other hand, based on the descriptions given of the previous prophets' life style, we know that they usually had the least benefit in worldly life and followed simple living. In this case, why the worldly blessings of Solomon (A.S.) were abundant? This descriptive-analytical study has examined the essence and reasons of Solomon (A.S.) gifts in the Torah, Qur'an and Islamic traditions and has concluded that divine adornment and testing are among the general causes. Divine grace, the attribute of servitude, the necessity of circumstances, the special miracle of each prophet, the answer to the prayer of Solomon (A.S.), lack of attachment to worldly gifts and being the symbol of the God's authority are among the special causes.
