وَلِسُلَيْمَانَ ٱلرِّيحَ عَاصِفَةً تَجْرِي بِأَمْرِهِ إِلَى ٱلأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي بَارَكْنَا فِيهَا وَكُنَّا بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَالِمِينَ
-Al-Anbiyâ’ ( الأنبياء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And, We disposed, for Solomon the wind to blow strongly — in another verse it is [described as being] rukhā’an, ‘to blow softly’ [Q. 38:36]; in other words, [it is either] blowing violently or gently [respectively], according to what he [Solomon] wanted — making its way, at his command, to the land which We have blessed, namely, Syria; and We have knowledge of all things, among them the fact that God, exalted be He, knew that what He gave to Solomon would prompt him to be subservient to his Lord, and so God did this in accordance with His knowledge.
