Quran Word A Day: Naml/Ant

Learning Objective:
- To learn about the story of the ants and Prophet Sulayman (as)
- To appreciate the amazing creation of the ants
- To take away a lesson from their lives 

Qur'an Word: 
Naml - Ant

Qur'an Verse: 
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. 27:18

What we can learn from the ants:
Ants are incredibly hard workers and excellent at sharing! If they find some food, they immediately pass the message onto others by leaving behind a special smelly trail that the other ants can follow. Ants share everything they get. They never eat anything alone. They even have two separate stomachs; one for their own food, and one to store food for others! Now that's a level of sharing we can look up to and try to practice inshAllah.
