The Ant (An-Naml)
In the name of
Allah, Gracious, Merciful.
1Ta Sin. These are verses of the Qur’an a book that makes clear;
2A guide; and glad tidings for the believers.
3Those who establish regular prayers and give in regular charity and also
have assurance of the hereafter.
4As to those who believe not in the hereafter We have made their deeds
pleasing in their eyes; and so they wander about in distraction.
5Such are they for whom a grievous penalty is waiting: and in the
hereafter, theirs will be the greatest loss.
6And as for you, the Qur’an is bestowed upon you from the presence of one
who is wise and all-knowing.

7Behold! Moses said to his family: “I perceive a fire; soon will I bring
you from there some information or I will bring you a burning brand to light
our fuel that you may warm yourselves.”
8But when he came to it a voice was heard: “Blessed are those in the fire
and those around: and glory to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!
9“O Moses! verily, I am Allah, the exalted in might, the wise!
10“And now do you throw your rod!” But when he saw it moving as if it had
been a snake he turned back in retreat and retraced not his steps: “O Moses”
“fear not: truly in My presence those called as apostles have no fear.
11“But if any have done wrong and have thereafter substituted good to take
the place of evil, truly I am often forgiving, most merciful.

12“And now put your hand into your bosom and it will come forth white
without stain: these are among the nine signs to Pharaoh and his people: for
they are a people rebellious in transgression.
13But when our signs came to them that should have opened their eyes, they
said: “This is sorcery manifest!”
14And they rejected those signs in iniquity and arrogance, though their
souls were convinced thereof: so see what was the end of those who acted

[Commentary continues below.]
16And Solomon was David’s heir. He said: “O people! we have been taught
the speech of birds and on us has been bestowed of all things: this is
indeed grace manifest.”
17And before Solomon were marshaled his hosts of jinns, and men, and
birds, and they were all kept in order and ranks.1
18At length when they came to a valley of ants, one of the ants said: “O
ants get into your habitations lest Solomon and his hosts crush you without

1. The subject of
the Jinns will be discussed in detail in
Surah 72, but for now we need to
look at what relationship if any, that King Solomon had with the Jinns.
George Sale commenting on this issue quotes from two foremost jurists, Al
Beidawi and Jallalo’ddin on Arabic history in this connection:
historians tell us that Solomon, having finished the Temple of Jerusalem,
went on pilgrimage to Mecca, where, having stayed as long as he pleased, he
proceeded towards Yaman; and leaving Mecca in the morning, he arrived by
noon at Sama, and being extremely delighted with the country, rested there;
but wanting water to make the ablution, he looked among the birds for the
lapwing, called by the Arabs Al Hudbud, whose business it was to find it;
is pretended she was sagacious or sharp-sighted enough to discover water
underground, which the devils used to draw, ... It may be proper to mention
here what the eastern writers fable of the manner of Solomon’s travelling.
They say that he had a carpet of green silk, on which his throne was placed,
being of a prodigious length and breadth, and sufficient for all his forces
to stand on, the men placing themselves on his right hand, and the spirits
on his left; and that when all were in order, the wind, at his command, took
up the carpet, and transported it, with all that were upon it, wherever he
pleased (Chap. XXI.); the army of birds at the same time flying over their
heads, and forming a kind of canopy, to shade them from the sun ...
story of Solomon going on pilgrimage to Mecca is as true as saying that
Abraham was a Muslim, when Islam was started over two millenniums after the
death of Abraham. The “Magic Carpet” is an Arabian Tale, with no fact
whatsoever to support.
The Jinns who traveled with Solomon is equally a
fabrication and blasphemous. It is a blasphemy because, Solomon was not only
a King, he was also a prophet according to Islamic teachings. Jinns are
fallen angels (evil spirits). The following Hadith supports that -- Sahih
Muslim’s Hadith 6757 narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas’ud:
Allah’s Apostle (peace
be upon him) said: There is none amongst you with whom is not an attache
from amongst the jinn (devil). They (the Companions) said: Allah’s Apostle
(peace be upon him) with you too? Thereupon he said: Yes, but Allah helps me
against him and so I am safe from his hand and he does not command me but
Jinns are evil spirits as such agents of Satan. True Prophets are
servants of the Most High God and have no business with the devil. If
therefore a revelation should come at any time that a servant of God was
under the escort of evil spirits. Both that prophet AND his god are to be
19So he smiled amused at her speech; and he said: “O my Lord! so order me
that I may be grateful for Your favors which You have bestowed on me and on
my parents, and that I may work the righteousness that will please You: and
admit me by Your grace to the ranks of Your righteous servants.”
20And he took a muster of the birds; and he said: “Why is it I see not the
hoopoe? Or is he among the absentees?
21“I will certainly punish him with a severe penalty or execute him unless
he bring me a clear reason.”
22But the hoopoe tarried not far: he compassed territory which you have
not compassed and I have come to you from Saba with tidings true.
23“I found a woman ruling over them and provided with every requisite; and
she has a magnificent throne.2

2. The Queen
described here resembles the Queen of Sheba in description. If this is the
same person, then the Qur’an account has exaggerated the facts. According to
the Bible, Solomon’s fame spread far and wide and people came from
everywhere to witness things firsthand. Among the visitors was the Queen of
Sheba. According to 1 Kings 10, verses 1-7:
Now when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of
Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to test him with hard
questions. She came to Jerusalem with a very great retinue, with camels
bearing spices and very much gold and precious stones. And when she came to
Solomon, she told him all that was on her mind. And Solomon answered all her
questions; there was nothing hidden from the king that he could not explain
to her. And when the queen of Sheba had seen all the wisdom of Solomon, the
house that he had built, the food of his table, the seating of his
officials, and the attendance of his servants, their clothing, his
cupbearers, and his burnt offerings that he offered at the house of the
LORD, there was no more breath in
her. And she said to the king,
“The report was true that I heard in my own
land of your words and of your wisdom, but I did not believe the reports
until I came and my own eyes had seen it. And behold, the half was not told
me. Your wisdom and prosperity surpass the report that I heard.”
The story of the Qur’an says that Solomon’s contact with the Queen of Sheba
came from the report of the bird. That is nothing but fairy tale.
24“And I found her and her people worshiping the sun besides Allah: Satan
has made their deeds seem pleasing in their eyes and has kept them away from
the path so they receive no guidance.
25That they should not worship Allah who brings to light what is hidden in
the heavens and the earth and knows what you hide and what you reveal.
26“Allah! there is no god but He! Lord of the throne supreme!”
27He said: “Soon shall we see whether you have told the truth or lied!
28“Go with this letter of mine and deliver it to them: then draw back from
them and see what answer they return”.
29She said: “Chiefs! here is delivered to me a letter worthy of respect.

gracious, most merciful.3

except in your presence.”
33They said: “We are endued with strength and given to vehement war: but
the command is with you; so consider what you will command.”
34She said: “Kings when they enter a country despoil it and make the
noblest of its people its meanest: thus do they behave.
35“And I am going to send him a present and see with what answer my

3. Please refer to
verse 30. A letter written by Solomon would not bear the salutation, “In the
name of Allah...” Because Allah was foreign to Solomon who served the God of
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and not the god of Ishmael. Allah became universally
known after the conversion of Muhammad into Islam who went about
relentlessly and mercilessly crusading his region and the entire world for
Allah and for Islam.
[Commentary continues below.]
36How when they came to Solomon, he said: “Will you give me abundance in
wealth? But that which Allah has given me is better than that which He has
given you! No, it is you who rejoice in your gift!
37“Go back to them and be sure we shall come to them with such hosts as
they will never be able to meet: we shall expel them from there in disgrace
and they will feel humbled.”
38He said: “Chiefs! which of you can bring me her throne before they come
to me in submission?”4
39Said an ifrit of the jinns: “I will bring it to you before you rise from
your council: indeed I have full strength for the purpose and may be

4. The came of her own will to test the wisdom of Solomon for which
she had heard so much. Please see note on verse 23 above.
5. An Ifrit of the Jinns most likely is a wicked and crafty demon
with mastery over deception and trickiness.
[Commentary continues below.]
40Said one who had knowledge of the book: “I will bring it to you within
the twinkling of an eye!” Then when he saw it placed firmly before him, he
said: “This is by the grace of my Lord! to test me whether I am grateful or
ungrateful! And if any is grateful, truly his gratitude is for his own soul;
but if any is ungrateful, truly my Lord is free of all needs, supreme in
41He said: “Transform her throne out of all recognition by her: let us see
whether she is guided or is one of those who receive no guidance.”
42So when she arrived, she was asked “Is this your throne?” She said “It
was just like this; and knowledge was bestowed on us in advance of this and
we have submitted to Allah.”
40Qalal lazi indahu ilmumminal kitabi ana atika bihi qabla ayyartad da

6. Please refer to
verse40. Solomon had many weaknesses but greed was not one of them to take
anybody’s throne (for that matter) by deception. When Solomon became King
over Judah, one of his first acts that showed his dependence upon God was
his prayer of consecration. This is what the Bible says about Solomon’s
attitude. 1 Kings 3:3-13:
Solomon loved the LORD, walking in the statutes of
David his father, only he sacrificed and made offerings at the high places.
And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there, for that was the great high
place. Solomon used to offer a thousand burnt offerings on that altar.
At Gibeon the
LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night, and God said, "Ask what I
shall give you." And Solomon said, "You have shown great and steadfast love
to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in
faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you. And
you have kept for him this great and steadfast
love and have given him a son to sit on his throne
this day. And now, O LORD my God, you have made your servant king in place
of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to
go out or come in. And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you
have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for
multitude. Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your
people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern
this your great people?" It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this.
And God said to him, "Because you have asked this, and have not asked for
yourself long life or riches or the life of your enemies, but have asked for
yourself understanding to discern what is right, behold, I now do according
to your word. Behold, I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none
like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you. I give
you also what you have not asked, both riches and honor, so that no other
king shall compare with you, all your days."
A man of this
caliber does not need evil spirits and demons to enrich him, since God
Almighty is his provider. And sufficient is God for a Provider. He is also
known as Jehovah Jireh-The Lord Our Provider.
43And he diverted her from the worship of others besides Allah: for she
was of a people that had no faith.
44She was asked to enter that lofty palace: but when she saw it, she
thought it was a lake of water and she tucked up her skirts uncovering her
legs. He said. “This is but a palace paved smooth with slabs of glass.” She
said: “O my Lord! I have indeed wronged my soul: I do submit with Solomon to
the Lord of the worlds.”7
45And We sent to the people of Thamud their brother Salih, saying “Serve
Allah”: but behold they became two factions quarreling with each other.
46He said: “O my people! why ask you to hasten on the evil in preference
to the good? If only you ask Allah for forgiveness, you may hope to receive

verse 44. Allah and Muhammad has the uncanny ability to make any figure and
name in the Old Testament times a Muslim. This is just one of such
[Commentary continues below.]
47They said: “Ill omen do we augur from you and those that are with you.”
He said: “Your ill omen is with Allah; yea, you are a people under trial.”8
48There were in the city nine men of a family who made mischief in the
land and would not reform.
49They said: “Swear a mutual oath by Allah that we shall make a secret
night attack on him and his people and that we shall then say to his heir:
“We were not present at the slaughter of his people and we are positively
telling the truth. “
50And they plotted and planned, but We too planned even while they
perceived it not.9
51Then see what was the end of their plot! that we destroyed them and all

51Fanzur kaifa kana aqibatu makrihim anna dam marnahum wa qaumahum ajmain
8. Please refer to
verse 47. The Bible says that God does not trial us, rather He will judge us
on the Day of Judgment and whoever is found wanting would be thrown into the
lake of fire and brimstone.
9. God does not
plot against us. One who plots is one who lacks complete knowledge and
outcome of things, therefore, in plotting, they look for ways to achieve
their goal. God knows everything, even the hidden things of life, as such He
does not plot or conspire with anyone to achieve any goal.
52Now such were their houses in utter ruin because they practiced
wrongdoing. Verily, in this is a sign for people of knowledge.
53And We saved those who believed and practiced righteousness.
54And We also sent Lut: behold he said to his people “Do you do what is
shameful though you see its iniquity?
55“Would you really approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, you
are an ignorant people !”
56But his people gave no other answer but this: they said “Drive out the
followers of Lut from your city: these are indeed men who want to be clean
57But We saved him and his family except his wife: We destined her to be
of those who lagged behind.

58And We rained down on them a shower of brimstone: and evil was the
shower on those who were admonished but heeded not!
59Say: Praise be to Allah and peace on His servants whom He has chosen.
Who is better? Allah or the false gods they associate with Him?
60Or who has created the heaven and the earth and who sends you down rain
from the sky? Yea, with it We cause to grow well planted orchards full of
beauty and delight: it is not in your power to cause the growth of the trees
in them. Can there be another god besides Allah? Nay, they are a people who
swerve from justice.
61Or who has made the earth firm to live in; made rivers in its midst; set
thereon mountains immovable; and made a separating bar between the two
bodies of flowing water? Can there be another god besides Allah? Nay, most
of them know not.

its suffering, and makes you inheritors of the earth? Can there be another
god besides Allah? Little it is that you heed!
63Or who guides you through the depths of darkness on land and sea and who
sends the winds as heralds of glad tidings going before His mercy? Can there
be another god besides Allah? High is Allah above what they associate with
64Or who originates creation then repeats it, and who gives you sustenance
from heaven and earth? Can there be another god besides Allah? Say “Bring
forth your argument if you are telling the truth!”

65Say: None in the heavens or on earth except Allah knows what is hidden:
nor can they perceive when they shall be raised up.
66Still less can their knowledge comprehend the hereafter: nay, they are
in doubt and uncertainty nay, they are blind thereunto!
67And the unbelievers say: “What! when we become dust we and our fathers,
shall we really be raised from the dead?
68“It is true we were promised this, we and our fathers before us: these
are nothing but tales of the ancients.”
69Say: “Go through the earth and see what has been the end of those

be in your pursuit!”

79So put your trust in Allah: for you are on the path of manifest truth.
80Truly you cannot cause the dead to listen nor can you cause the deaf to
hear the call when they turn back in retreat.
81And can you be a guide to the blind from straying; only those will you
get to listen who believe in Our signs, and they will bow in Islam.
82And when the word is fulfilled against them, We shall produce from the
earth a beast to face them: he will speak to them, for mankind did not
believe with assurance in our signs.
83And one day We shall gather together from every people a troop of those
who reject Our signs and they shall be kept in ranks.

84Until when they come Allah will say: “Did you reject My signs, though
you comprehended them not in knowledge or what was it you did?”
85And the word will be fulfilled against them because of their wrongdoing
and they will be unable to speak.
86Do they not see that We have made the night for them to rest in, and the
day to give them light? Verily, in this are signs for any people that
