Totally out of the box and a bunch of free associations that probably make no sense:
I am not a native Arabic speaker but found it interesting that the subject is called "Abu Suleyman al-Faransi" and not "Farangi". French, French speaking or Western and if the later do they mean geographically or culturally Western.
Süleyman is the Turkish version of Solomon while the Arabic is generally written as Sulaiman or Sulayman, at least in Latin letters.
Solomon's meaning refers to peace (?!) and obviously it's relationship with the biblical figure, the Hebreew profit, whose father (Abu) was David (Daud, Dawood, Dawud in Arabic).
