A Meccan sura which takes its title from the ants mentioned in the Solomon story (verses 1819). It 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.
