What are the Muslims view of the Queen of Sheba and do they believe she existed?
Does the Koran mention anything about her? Thanks.
There is one verse containing the word Sh@ba'iy (Strong's 07615). Here it is:
7615 Shba'iy sheb-aw-ee' patronymic from 7614; a Shebaite or descendant of Sheba:--Sabean.
Joe 3:8 And I will sell 04376 your sons 01121 and your daughters 01323 into the hand 03027 of the children 01121 of Judah 03063, and they shall sell 04376 them to the Sabeans 07615, to a people 01471 far off 07350: for the LORD 03068 hath spoken 01696 [it].
Sh@ba' (Strong's 07614) occurs 23 times in 23 verses:
1Ki 10:1 And when the queen 04436 of Sheba 07614 heard 08085 of the fame 08088 of Solomon 08010 concerning the name 08034 of the LORD 03068, she came 0935 to prove 05254 him with hard questions 02420.
(Young) Luke 11:31 `A queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and shall condemn them, because she came from the ends of the land to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and lo, greater than Solomon here!
