Prophet David is well known in all three Abrahamic faiths, Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. He is a central figure in Jewish history, reigning in United Kingdom of Israel and Judah, from c. 1010Ė970 BCE.

David is also a common figure in art and iconography across the centuries and his story has even been popularized in 20th century culture, most notably in Leonard Cohenís iconic song Hallelujah.

Davidís Piety

In Islam, David is recognized as a Prophet, a messenger, and a king. His story differs slightly from the Biblical traditions and has at times been a cause of disagreement.

Muslims do not accept the sins of adultery and murder attributed to David in the Bible because Islam teaches us that the Prophets do not commit such grave crimes.

Muslims also believe that what God tells us in Quran, and what Prophet Muhammad explains to us in his traditions, is the final word on a subject. It is in these two sources that we find that Davidís most significant role was his piety. His righteousness stands out, and his submission to God shapes his rise to power...
