Please enlighten me! What does Bible have to say about this great and unusual incidence of teleportation of queen Sheba's throne?

Or if it is not in the bible, then can we say that the incident was missed or not captured by the writers of bible?

Hello Maverick.

It is rare to have any stories in the Quran to totally synchronise with Bible, let alone this one. It would be wrong to take the approach of "the writers of the Bible failing to capture a story" for a number of reasons....

- We are creating one Holy Book oppose another, which is undermining God's revelation.
- It creates the situation of undermining the Qur'an when the principle is applied in the reverse....the failure of the Qur'an to capture the stories in the Bible.

The approach to this situation should rather be:
-The Qur'an is clearly NOT intended to be simply a translation into Arabic of the same stories of the previous revelation. The Qur'an and the Bible have a totally different style and function, that of rhyme and rhythm to enable recitation.
- Possibly more controversial is, the Qur'an is not intended to present historical events in chronological manner... It is intended to use known stories to preach a message of repentance. Most of the stories used in the Qur'an were known in Arabia, these became the vehicle for dakwah.

I hope it is clear with the clear differences, the Holy Books were never intended to mirror each other in style or even content.

Wasalam

Peace. Where does our Lord state that is the purpose of our book?

If we were to read the Qur'an from beginning to end, with a note pad and pen beside us, noting down every time the Qur'an calls people to repent from something, whether it was compromised monotheism / shirk of local Arabs, hypocrisy.... as well as noting every time the Quran gives examples of the Prophets of the Bible calling people to repent from their sins, we would end up with a lot of writing!
