And gathered for Solomon were his soldiers of the jinn and men and birds, and they were [marching] in rows. (17) 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." (18) So[Solomon] smiled, amused at her speech, and said, "My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do righteousness of which You approve.

     (Chapter Naml (ants):17-19)

    This is part of a scene that happened at the time of Prophet Solomon (may God bless him). The Prophet Solomon has been supported by the miracle of hearing and understanding the language that living creatures like birds or ants produce. An athiest would make fun of it and say that religion has no  sense of wisdom and is completely counter science. This is not true, because science has proved for us the truthfulness of every single word in Qur'an. How could Man from ancient times know that ants could have a language of its own? They simply could not, because techniques of sound technology was not able at that time.

    Dr. Robert Hickling has spent long years in observing insects and studying the sound resonance that they produce. There was no way in discovering this untill he was able to record the sounds which ants produce.What was surprising to this scientist is that the sound resonance they generated differ from ant to another, and from male to female. These researches were published in "The Journal of Sound and Vibration" magazine in 2006, and it was the first time Man could, really, hear the sounds which ants produced. This scientist presented a research paper under the name of  "Analysis of Acoustic Communication by Ants" in the "Journal of Accoustical society of America". The result of this research paper shows that ants has a better "hearing" capacity than Manhimself!Scientists think that the ant uses her 'warning horns' (as they call it) so as to produce and to receive sound resonances.

    Nowadays, scientists try to hear and understand the sound signals that ants produce. They were able to distinguish four kinds of these sound signals, after an observational experiment which endured long years ago. The result is this:

    * Ants produce a specific warning signal in case of risk, which the other ants receive and react to it in due time. Look at the Qur'anic verse. Does it portray accurately this scientific statement. At the sight of Prophet and his army, the ant perceived the danger inherent in their presence. This ant produced sound signals to other members of her community to tell them that their life might be in danger. The only miracle here is not that the ant has a language, for it has been proved by science, but that God has granted his Prophet Solomon the ability to decipher these signals and understand the message.

    *Scientists say that ants resemble human beings, because they work in the most perfect manners, and communicate with each other while working.

    *When an ant attacks a plant it produces a frightening sound as a way to fight her enemy.

    *Ants generate signs of emergency in case of danger.

    Modern sound technology have contributed to discover the ants' ability to speech in its own dwellings. It was maintained that ants produce sound signals that were not known before. A research team brought little mircrophones to the ants' dwellings to record the sounds that the queen produces to hold the attention of ants. This team discovered that once the queen speaks, the ants stop all forms of movement, and generate warning horns for long hours to detect any external signal of danger.

    God says in the Holy Qur'an. (Chapter Anaam: 38)

    "Indeed, whatever creature that creeps on the earth, or a bird which flies with its wings are just nations like you."
