Up until recently, we were not aware that Ants talk to each other.
Those who read the below verse would have laughed at the Qur’an and used such verses to prove the Qur’an incorrect. How can Ants talk? Is this a cartoon? Is this a fairy tale book?
Then, when they reached the Valley of the Ants, an ant said: “Ants! Enter your dwellings, so that Sulayman and his troops do not crush you unwittingly.” (Qur’an, 27:18)
Other translations of above verse:
Sahih International: Until, when they came upon the valley of the ants, an ant said, “O ants, enter your dwellings that you not be crushed by Solomon and his soldiers while they perceive not.”
Pickthall: Till, when they reached the Valley of the Ants, an ant exclaimed: O ants! Enter your dwellings lest Solomon and his armies crush you, unperceiving.
Yusuf Ali: At length, when they came to a (lowly) valley of ants, one of the ants said: “O ye ants, get into your habitations, lest Solomon and his hosts crush you (under foot) without knowing it.”
Shakir: Until when they came to the valley of the Naml, a Namlite said: O Naml! enter your houses, (that) Sulaiman and his hosts may not crush you while they do not know.
Muhammad Sarwar: When they arrived in the valley of the ants, one ant said to the others, “Enter your dwellings lest you be carelessly crushed by Soloman and his army.”
Mohsin Khan: Till, when they came to the valley of the ants, one of the ants said: “O ants! Enter your dwellings, lest Sulaiman (Solomon) and his hosts crush you, while they perceive not.”
Arberry: till, when they came on the Valley of Ants, an ant said, ‘Ants, enter your dwelling-places, lest Solomon and his hosts crush you, being unaware!’
Why would someone want to make such verse up without any proof at the time? This is another miracle mentioned within the Qur’an over 1400 years ago.
