This khutba carries on in general terms from the speech one of our younger members, Bushra Ahmad, made at the October Community meeting. She discussed the mention in the Holy Quran of an ant speaking to other ants and explained how ants communicate by exchanging chemicals.
This khutba looks at the fact that the Holy Quran is a book of guidance and if it mentions something then Allah must want us to study that phenomenon be it sun and the moon or be it the behaviour of ants.
The khutba also points to the fact that some latest research shows that ants do speak in the sense of producing sounds.
It is also pointed out that when Muslim ask for Allah to grant them the wisdom to follow those upon whom he has bestowed favours it does not just mean spiritual or religious matters but also science and knowledge.
