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. During Dawud’s reign, the Israelites conquered Jordan, Sham, Palestine, Oman, Aleppo and Hamat. The Jabbars had been living in many lands. After running them out, the Children of Israel brought these lands to monotheism.
