The surah that speaks of the Valley of The Ants, through which the hosts of the prophet Solomon were once marching, wherein God miraculously enabled Solomon to hear one of them as she warned the other to flee into their homes before being crushed—a miracle of audition and understanding for which Solomon thanked God profusely. It takes its name from the story of Solomon and the ant (naml), mentioned in verse 18 ff. The surah both opens and closes by describing the Quran as joyful news for the believers and a warning for others. It gives stories of past prophets and the destruction of the communities that disbelieved in them. Illustrations are given of the nature of God’s power, contrasted with the total lack of power of the "partners" they worship beside Him, and descriptions are given of the Day of Judgement for those who deny it.

١٠ - اور اپنی لاٹھی ڈال دو۔ جب اُسے دیکھا تو (اس طرح) ہل رہی تھی گویا سانپ ہے تو پیٹھ پھیر کر بھاگے اور پیچھے مڑ کر نہ دیکھا (حکم ہوا کہ) موسیٰ ڈرو مت۔ ہمارے پاس پیغمبر ڈرا نہیں کرتے .
[27:10] And [he was told], "Throw down your staff." But when he saw it writhing as if it were a snake, he turned in flight and did not return. [Allah said], "O Moses, fear not. Indeed, in My presence the messengers do not fear.

١٢ - اور اپنا ہاتھ اپنے گریبان میں ڈالو سفید نکلے گا۔ (ان دو معجزوں کے ساتھ جو) نو معجزوں میں (داخل ہیں) فرعون اور اس کی قوم کے پاس جاؤ کہ وہ بےحکم لوگ ہیں .
[27:12] And put your hand into the opening of your garment [at the breast]; it will come out white without disease. [These are] among the nine signs [you will take] to Pharaoh and his people. Indeed, they have been a people defiantly disobedient."
