We truly subjected the mountains to hymn ˹Our praises˺ along with him in the evening and after sunrise. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
And ˹We subjected˺ the birds, flocking together. All turned to him ˹echoing his hymns˺. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Has the story of the two plaintiffs, who scaled the ˹wall of David’s˺ sanctuary, reached you ˹O Prophet˺? Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
ﭿ
When they came into David’s presence, he was startled by them. They said, “Have no fear. ˹We are merely˺ two in a dispute: one of us has wronged the other. So judge between us with truth—do not go beyond ˹it˺—and guide us to the right way. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
This is my brother.1 He has ninety-nine sheep while I have ˹only˺ one. ˹Still˺ he asked me to give it up to him, overwhelming me with ˹his˺ argument.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
David ˹eventually˺ ruled, “He has definitely wronged you in demanding ˹to add˺ your sheep to his. And certainly many partners wrong each other, except those who believe and do good—but how few are they!” Then David realized that We had tested him so he asked for his Lord’s forgiveness, fell down in prostration, and turned ˹to Him in repentance˺. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
So We forgave that for him. And he will indeed have ˹a status of˺ closeness to Us and an honourable destination! Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
ﯿ
˹We instructed him:˺ “O David! We have surely made you an authority in the land, so judge between people with truth. And do not follow ˹your˺ desires or they will lead you astray from Allah’s Way. Surely those who go astray from Allah’s Way will suffer a severe punishment for neglecting the Day of Reckoning.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
We have not created the heavens and earth and everything in between without purpose—as the disbelievers think. So woe to the disbelievers because of the Fire! Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
