    I'm guessing you've never studied the Quran, and specifically that ayah, once in your life.

    A quick google search for that ayah and it's context will suffice.
    And gathered for Solomon were his soldiers of the jinn and men and birds, and they were [marching] in rows. Until, when they came upon the valley of the ants, an ant said, “O ants, enter your dwellings that you not be crushed by Solomon and his soldiers while they perceive not.” So [Solomon] smiled, amused at her speech, and said, “My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do righteousness of which You approve. And admit me by Your mercy into [the ranks of] Your righteous servants.” Qu'ran - (27:17-19)

    explain the context of this one for me please

    Prophet Solomon had many miracles, one of them was the ability to talk/understand animals. The ant said that (as any ant would) for fear of being crushed, so he laughed as he could percieve them and instead of talking to the ant again, he talks to God (after the bit you've bolded).

    I don't see your point?
