it really would make a mockery of the Qur'an if we consider literal ANTS!

Ants must have their colonies well-established and secure underground and it must be built away from the roads and transportation routs. Obviously Solomon's army were using a secure road and passage like any other army in the world and i believe ant's colonies are insignificant to a huge army and it would make it irrelevant to even mention them in a serious manner.

Unless we take An-Naml the name of a valley resided by human beings it doesn't make sense!

Also the Qur'an is using familiar names that were known to Solomon and his people. Al-HudHud, Al-Tayr or An-Naml. If these were mere creatures i believe they must have been expressed in other ways.

Humanity is able to communicate with other animals in order to teach them something but first of all it needs a huge amount of time and energy and secondly to what extent can animals learn and perform the taskz we want? Why would an army use birds/animals that cannot be relied upon very much instead of intelligent human beings?

They didn't have satellites and navigation systems in those days so they must have had fast cavalry and observant spies!
