“Also, your Master realizes best all who are in the sky and the earth. What’s more, for sure, We have favored a portion of the Prophets above others, and to Dawud (David) We gave the Zabur (Hymns)” (Quran 17:55)
ALLAH SWT gifted Him with the best voice like nobody at any point had. At whatever point he discussed the Zubur and applauded ALLAH SWT, every one of the birds used to get gathered around him and participate in commending ALLAH SWT. And surprisingly, the plants and the mountains would appreciate and go along with him in Applauding the all-powerful ALLAH.
It is referenced in the Quran that ALLAH SWT says: “We genuinely exposed the mountains to song Our commendations alongside Him at night and after dawn” (Quran 38:18)
“Furthermore, the birds were collected, all with him rehashing acclaims” (Quran 38:19)
Prophet Dawud alaihissalam was the first to whom ALLAH SWT made gifted in making weapons and coverings from iron. ALLAH SWT favored him with a supernatural occurrence by which he could soften iron in his grasp and form it into weapons and protection.
ALLAH SWT references Surah Saba: And unquestionably, We gave Dawud abundance from Us (and said), ‘O mountains! Rehash Our gestures of recognition with him and the birds you as well. What’s more, we mellowed for him iron, (saying) ‘Make wide layers of mail, measure the connections well and carry out honorable things. Definitely, I’m a Diviner of what you do.” (Quran 34:10-11)

In a true Hadees, Prophet Muhammad SAW said: “The most adored Salat (supplication) in seeing ALLAH SWT is the Salat of Dawud and the most cherished of Saum (fasting) in seeing ALLAH SWT is the Saum of Dawud. He used to rest for the principal half of the evening and proposition petition for 33% of it and rest (once more) for one-6th of it. Also, he used to notice quick on substitute days.

The strength and astuteness of Prophet Dawud alaihissalam are referenced through different portrayals in the Blessed Quran.
One of the occurrences of His solidarity and accommodation to ALLAH SWT very early in life is referenced in the Quran in Surah Baqarah.
So they crushed them by consent of Allah, and David killed Goliath, and Allah gave him the authority and shrewdness [i.e., prophethood] and showed him from that which He willed. Furthermore, if it were not for Allah checking [some] individuals through others, the earth would have been degraded, yet Allah is the owner of abundance for the universe. (Quran 2:251 )
After Prophet Musa Alaihissalam kicked the bucket, the Israelites became exceptionally uncouth and skeptical. To cause them to understand their defiance and willfulness and to remind them to go to ALLAH, ALLAH SWT put them on a preliminary by designating one of the most exceedingly awful and most horrible despots as their chief named Jalut(Goliath). Banu Israel was depleted with the embarrassment and persistent conflicts and losses in the realm of Jalut.
After numerous long periods of preliminaries, Talut was chosen to be the lord of Banu Israel by ALLAH SWT. Talut was a rancher, and he was a wise man, major areas of strength for compliance.
Talut had exceptionally restricted individuals and arms in his military notwithstanding, Jalut had a colossal, solid, and completely prepared armed force. Both militaries were set to battle. Banu Israel got appalled seeing the size of Jalut’s military.
Ruler Talut pronounced that whoever kills Jaloot will get hitched to his little girl.
No one thought for even a moment to go in front and begin the battle, and right now, a little fellow approached, saying I will battle Jalut. Talut would not allow him to go as He was exceptionally youthful. Notwithstanding, the kid demanded to let him go and said, I killed a lion the previous evening so I could battle with Jalut. That courageous young man was Prophet Dawud alaihissalam.
Talut concurred and made him wear the shield to start the battle. Prophet Dawud alaihissalam felt it hard to go with the covering as He was so youthful and thin. Dawud alaihissalam confronted Jalut without any weapons or swords; however, a slingshot and barely any stones. He appealed to ALLAH SWT to help him and was prepared to kill Jalut.
He shot with his slingshot, and the rock got directly to Jalut’s temple. He was hit hard to the point that he quickly fell with blood spouting from his brow, and he was tracked down dead in a flash.
The multitude of Jalut got alarmed, seeing their chief bite the dust immediately. The Banu Israel then won the fight with the Philistine armed force with the will and help of ALLAH SWT, even though they were not very many in numbers and were scarcely prepared.
Dawud alaihissalam then entered the holy place known as Jerusalem with his family and other honorable individuals.
As guaranteed, Talut wedded his little girl to Prophet Dawud alaihissalam. Additionally, Talut delegated Dawud alaihissalam as the leader of his military.
The insight, significance, and humbleness of Prophet Dawud alaihissalam began expanding among everybody with time. The affection and conspicuousness that prophet Dawud alaihissalam was getting from individuals made Talut desirous, and he began begrudging Dawud alaihissalam.
This fire of enviously became so serious that Talut made arrangements to kill Him. Talut sent Dawud alaihissalam to send him for risky conflicts so he might be killed by the adversaries notwithstanding, Prophet Dawud alaihissalam won each fight with the assistance of ALLAH SWT.
When Prophet Dawud alaihissalam got familiar with Talut’s arrangement, He left the spot with His family that very night and was shielded in a cavern. Numerous others likewise took cover with him in the cavern. Prophet Dawud alaihissalam then went to the adjoining realm of Palestine alongside his kin.
Talut went after Palestine when he came to be aware of this. He kicked the bucket in this fight, and his troopers escaped. Prophet Dawud alaihissalam was the lord of Palestine now, and after the passing of Samuel alaihissalam, ALLAH SWT allowed him Prophethood.
Prophet Dawud alaihissalam governed Palestine for quite a long time with harmony and congruity. He spent seven years in Hebron and 33 years in Al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Prophet Dawud alaihissalam began to modify the masjid Al-Aqsa, which was laid in remnants, and it was a major venture, be that as it may, He was unable to finish it and died.
Later, His child Prophet Sulaiman alaihissalam, finished modifying Masjid Al-Aqsa.
Prophet Dawud alaihissalam lived for 100 years.
