Translation

He said: "Transform her throne out of all recognition by her: let us see whether she is guided (to the truth) or is one of those who receive no guidance."

Tafsir

He said, 'Disguise her throne for her - in other words, transform it such that when she sees it, it will be in an unrecognisable form - that we may see whether she will be guided, to recognising it, or be of those who cannot be guided', to recognise when things are transformed around them. He [Solomon] sought thereby to test her mind, for it was said to have something wrong with it. Thus they transformed it by adding or taking away [certain things] and in other ways.
