Suleiman's Life

Suleiman used to feed his guest meat and the finest bread. He used to feed his family hard bread and he used to eat bread made from not purified barley. (1)

Suleiman is the last prophet to enter heaven because of what he was given in Donia. (2)

The first one to cover Kaa'ba was Suleiman. (3)

Though Suleiman had all that dominion he used to wear clothes made of hair. When night comes he used to stay up all night with his hands raised supplicating and praying. Suleiman asked Allah for this dominion so that he subdues all the kings of disbelief.
