A Short Story about the Prophet Dawud
After the death of Talut the Most High made Dawud (peace be upon him) a king and a prophet. When he reached 40 years of age, he set out for Bait al Muqaddas.

After running them out, the Children of Israel brought these lands to monotheism.

Muslims should possess both an inner and outer modesty. This is reflected in behavior, speech and appearance, and includes being mindful of God at all times.
