In The Qur’an, we get the story of Solomon (Suleiman) and his interaction with the Queen of Sheba, referred to as Bilqis (and other spellings), was the leader of her country and was urged to accept the monotheism of Abraham by Solomon. She duly accepts the Faith.
The importance of this story is that it illustrates how a woman’s leadership is characterized, that the quality of the leadership is based upon one’s faithfulness to God: which is to be just. Nothing about her rule is characterized as anything out of line, save her previous worship of other than God.
In fact, Solomon describes her as:
“Behold, I found there a woman ruling over them; and she has been given [abundance] of all [good] things, and hers is a mighty throne.” [27:23] Muhammad Asad
