The Glorified Allah commands: “He is who made best everything that He has created, and He began the creation of man from clay.
Then He made his progeny of an extract of water of light estimation.
Then He shaped him and breathed into him of His spirit. He created for you the ears and the eyes and the hearts. How little you give thanks.” (Al-Sajda/ The Prostration 32/7-9)
They came to the valley of the ant, an ant said: O you ants! Enter your houses! (So that) Suleiman and his arms may not crush you. They won’t realize (it).
So he smiled, wondering at her speech, and said: My Lord! Grant me that I should be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed on me. And the favor You have bestowed on my parents. (Lead me) so I should do well such as You are pleased with. Make me enter, by Your mercy, into Your good servants, the good ones.
Suleiman inspected the birds’ host. Then said: How can’t I see the hoopoe. Is he of the absentees?
but he did not wait for long. (The Hoopoe came)and said: I learned something you do not know. I brought you sure information from Sheba.
Surely I found a woman ruling over them. She has been given abundance and a mighty throne:
1 found her and her people worshiping the sun instead of Allah. Shaitan has made their deeds fair-seeming to them, he has kept them away from the path; so they can’t see the right.
Could they prostrate to Allah! (He) Who brings forth what is hidden in the heavens and the earth and knows what they hide and what they proclaim.
Allah…there is no god but He: He is the Lord of the supreme throne.
Suleiman said: We will see whether you have told the truth or whether you are a liar:
It is from Suleiman, and it starts with the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful (Bismillahirrahmanirrahim),
She said: O Leaders! Advice me the right in this affair! I never decide an affair except in your presence.” (An-Naml/ The Ant 27/17-32)
And they denied them unjustly and arrogantly while their soul had been convinced of them.” An-Naml/The Ant 27/13-14)
When they are cast therein, they will hear a moaning. It will be boiling.
Almost bursting with rage. Whenever a group is cast into it, its keepers will ask them: Did no warner come to you?
They shall say: Indeed the warner came, but we denied (him) and said: Allah has not revealed anything to you; you are only in a great error.
And they shall say: Had we but listened or used our reason, we should not have been among the companions of the blazing fire.
So they then will confess their sins. But far will be (forgiveness) from the companions of the blazing fire.” (Al-Mulk/Kingship 67/6-11)
[2.205] And when he turns back, he runs along in the land that he may cause mischief in it and destroy the tilth and the stock, and Allah does not love mischief-making.
[2.206] And when it is said to him, guard against (the punish ment of) Allah; pride carries him off to sin, therefore hell is sufficient for him; and certainly it is an evil resting place.
[2.207] And among men is he who sells himself to seek the pleasure of Allah; and Allah is Affectionate to the servants.” (Al-Baqara/The Cow 2/204-207
[63.2] They make their oaths a shelter, and thus turn away from Allah’s way; surely evil is that which they do.
[63.3] That is because they believe, then disbelieve, so a seal is set upon their hearts so that they do not understand.
[63.4] And when you see them, their persons will please you, and If they speak, you will listen to their speech; (they are) as if they were big pieces of wood clad with garments; they think every cry to be against them. They are the enemy, therefore beware of them; may Allah destroy them, whence are they turned back? (Munafeeqoon/ The Hypocrites 63/1-4)
