(1 Kings 3:7-12)Solomon, as a young man, prays for wisdom to rule God's people

(1 Kings 4:29-34) IN answer, "... God continued giving Sol�o�mon wisdom and understanding in very great measure and a broadness of heart, like the sand that is upon the seashore. And Sol�o�mon's wisdom was vaster than the wisdom of all the Orientals and than all the wisdom of Egypt.....he was wiser than any other man...And they kept coming from all the peoples to hear Sol�o�mon's wisdom, even from all the kings of the earth who had heard of his wisdom."

But it cannot be said that Solomon was the wisest man to EVER live.

Jesus , as God's perfect son, was a far wiser human, and the only one called 'the wisdom of God'.......(1 Corinthians 1: 22-31).

1 Kings 10:23 and 2 Chronicles 9:22 state that King Solomon exceeded and surpassed all the KINGS of the earth in riches and wisdom. Likewise, 1 Kings 3:12 and 2 Chronicles 1:12 refers to King Solomon being granted greater wisdom than any other KING. 1 Kings 4:29-34 states King Solomon was wiser than all the people of the "east country" and in verse 31 lists wise men he exceeded in wisdom. The Bible never states that he was the wisest man to ever live in the entire world, only that he was the wisest ruler to ever live. Certainly his sins proved he was not the wisest of all. And of course, Jesus exceeds any and all.

In quran there's a description very detailed about solomon's life and his story and also a description of his says that he was given a richness that no one else will have...he even owned the ability to speak to animals and had the ability to control everything including gin

Perhaps you are referring to these Scriptures:

2 Chronicles 1:11-12New King James Version (NKJV)

11 Then God said to Solomon: "Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches or wealth or honor or the life of your enemies, nor have you asked long life-but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge My people over whom I have made you king- 12 wisdom and knowledge are granted to you; and I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings have had who were before you, nor shall any after you have the like."

1 Kings 4:29-31New King James Version (NKJV)

29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and exceedingly great understanding, and largeness of heart like the sand on the seashore. 30 Thus Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the men of the East and all the wisdom of Egypt. 31 For he was wiser than all men-than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol; and his fame was in all the surrounding nations.

Because it was God who granted him his wisdom (1 Kings 3:5-12); and God gave him an extraordinary amount of it (1 Kings 3:12).
