Lessons from an Ant

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.” [An Naml:18]
It is only in the beauty of the religion of Islam that one is able to take lessons from something even as small as ants. Many of us disregard them stepping on them anywhere they are seen while others make it into a game seeing how many they can squish. However, in verse 18 there is a lesson for everyone. The ant is not only looking out for herself but she is looking out for all the others; so why is it that we only think about ourselves?
Another impressive point is that the ant thinks best of Sulaiman (as) and says they will crush them because they do not perceive that the ants are there. We should also try this technique. Instead of thinking bad of everyone we should always give the benefit of the doubt.
