King Solomon receiving the queen of Sheba is a popular biblical theme among artists.

The queen of Sheba is sometimes portrayed as white, sometimes as black. There are often black people in her retinue.

According to the Christian version of this story the queen of Sheba is very impressed by the wise Solomon. During her visit she becomes convinced of the wisdom of Solomons God.

In some Christian stories she gives birth to a son nine months later, Menelik. He will become the first king of Ethiopia.

The Song of Songs in the Bible is thought to refer to this relationship.

The Song of Songs is often interpreted as a metaphor for the love between Solomons God and His followers, whatever their background. But there are those who adhere to a more literal interpretation: A declaration of love between Solomon and a bride, who turns out to be a black bride.

I am black and lovely Did Boeckhorst have these words from the Song of Songs in mind when he painted his queen of Sheba?
Not only is his queen of Sheba emphatically black, she also draws the viewers attention with her splendid white robe and central position. Solomon appears to be irresistibly attracted to her.

By emphasizing the queens grandeur, Boeckhorst shows his disregard for the prevailing conventions on black figures in painting, art historian Elizabeth McGrath says.

The two white train-bearers in the queens retinue are remarkable. Usually, servants were portrayed as being black, in contrast to the white main figures.
The presence of a black servant with a tray full of flowers for his mistress further underlines her glorious position.

    .
    .
    U r such a FUCKING LIAR, it is sickening!!! I looked it up n recent archaeological discoveries suggest that she ruled over Southern ARABIA. It was NEVER EVER said that she was Arab. And @kamaaladiin is right, there has NEVER EVER been any female Arab ruler!!! If u know one, plz give me her name. Arabs r too chauvinistic for that, that is why Saudi Arabia is the ONLY country in the world where women still cant drive
    .
    MAKEDA was BLACK n everything proves it
    DEAL WITH IT!!!

    @thrite1234 just because somebody is learning who’s who, don’t make them racist. Jesus never said, don’t find out who u are. These are the last days, n nothing is going to be hidden. Everything is coming to the light. If one understands now that Jesus was black, why still believe in a lie? I’m not saying put down any race. It’s just truth. If u were blamed for being a rapist , but they found out that u didn’t do it, would u still want to be labeled a rapist when the truth shows u are not? Acts

I just dont trust Arabs, I listen to other scholars like Imran Hussein , wait he is not arab he is an Urdu. you know this is my last comment. thnx for the heated debate

    Islam teaches love and equality, but most people’s believe in race more than Islam and pretend to be Muslims and love other Muslims( I mean the arabs) from other races when they dont, that long movie is done with me and I am not racist by the way i just despise people like you who think the way you think. I guess I am bad guy cuz i did not accept Arab crap lol, the hadith is a legitimate hadith according to Arab fake scholars that love to spread lies about the prophet, am done with you here,

    * الخلافة في الأرض تُنال بالإيمان والأعمال الصالحة:
    قال الله تعالى: (وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُم فِي الأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمْ الَّذِي ارْتَضَى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْناً يَعْبُدُونَنِي لا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئاً وَمَنْ كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ الْفَاسِقُونَ) (النور/55). Leadershipt can be obtained by good deeds not by race.

    @strongside200 – عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ((الناس تبع لقريش في هذا الشأن مسلمهم تَبَعٌ لمسلمهم، وكافرهم تبع لكافرهم)). DO you think the prophet will say ” people belongs to quraish( arab tribe) like their property , and do u think the prophet said even the none believers belong to the quraish non believers , come on that is hadith saih( Arab scholars said is true hadith, this is an evidence to fabricate hadiths.

    @strongside200 1- we were speaking about Arabs not Islam. 2- White Man hates black man as much Arabs hate black so I am not expecting truth from someone who invades lands and kill innocent people ( white Man), they also hate Arabs, so dont expect truth from them. Can you tell me the hadith that says Sheba is from Yemen, even though we know Yemen was under the Ethiopian authority at that time ?

    @strongside200 Arabs do the following. 1 bury baby girls alive. 2- treat women like garbage till now. 3- Masters in honor killing. 4. They call themselves a Muslim and if you study their history they did not make a black man a leader in the army except when the prophet peace be up on him was alive. 5. They hate fellow Muslims cuz they aint Arabs like them such as Iran and love white man more than Allah.All Muslims are equal to my point of view and I treat all people equal not like you .
