The Quran mentions a story about prophets today man's army of men, jinn and birds, and says, they came upon a valley of the ants, and an ant said, Oh, ants, enter your dwellings so that you're not crushed by swan, a man and his soldiers, while they perceive not.

He was a wise and just ruler, and his kingdom was so powerful that it is said that the throne of his kingdom was supported by the angels.
