The Ant Praying for Rain

It was narrated that Prophet Suleiman (pbuh) once went with jinns and humans to pray for Rain. He passed by a lame ant who had her wings opened and hands raised saying: "O Allah, I'm a creature among your creatures. We are never needless of your bestowments. Don’t punish us because of the sins of humans and water us."

 Suleiman (pbuh) said to the ones with him: "Go back, someone interceded for you."

In another narration, he (pbuh) said: "Go back, you shall be satisfied but by other than you."
