Return to them, for we will surely come to them with soldiers that they will be powerless to encounter, and we will surely expel them therefrom in humiliation, and they will be debased.
[Solomon] said, |O assembly [of jinn], which of you will bring me her throne before they come to me in submission?|
A powerful one from among the jinn said, |I will bring it to you before you rise from your place, and indeed, I am for this [task] strong and trustworthy.

And whoever is grateful - his gratitude is only for [the benefit of] himself. And whoever is ungrateful - then indeed, my Lord is Free of need and Generous.
He said, |Disguise for her her throne; we will see whether she will be guided [to truth] or will be of those who is not guided.

She was told, |Enter the palace.| But when she saw it, she thought it was a body of water and uncovered her shins [to wade through]. He said, |Indeed, it is a palace [whose floor is] made smooth with glass.| She said, |My Lord, indeed I have wronged myself, and I submit with Solomon to Allah , Lord of the worlds.
