Who is Solomon?
(Sol′o‧mon) [from a root meaning "peace"].
Son of King David of the line of Judah; king of Israel from 1037
to 998 B.C.E. The Bible record, after reporting the death of the
son born to David through his illicit relations with Bath-sheba,
continues: "And David began to comfort Bath-sheba his wife.

did love him. So he sent by means of Nathan the prophet and called
his name Jedidiah, for the sake of Jehovah." (2Sa 12:24, 25)
Solomon later had three full brothers, sons of David and
Bath-sheba: Shimea, Shobab, and Nathan.-1Ch 3:5.

been bestowed all things. This, verily, is an evident grace (from
And there were gathered before Sulai'man his hosts of jinns and
men, and birds, and they were all set in battle order (marching
forwards). (27:15-17 Quran).
Solomon is black not white.
