Holy Quran
The Bee [1] (Arabic: الْنَّحْل, an-naḥl,[2] aka "The Bees") is the 16th chapter of the Qur'an, with 128. It is named after honey bees mentioned in verse 68[Quran 16:68], and contains a comparison of the industry and adaptability of honey bees to the industry of man.[3] [4] Regarding the timing and contextual background of the revelation (asbāb al-nuzūl), it is an earlier "Meccan surah", which means it is believed to have been revealed in Mecca, instead of later in Medina. Summary This surah warns against polytheism, saying that the pagan gods cannot create anything,[5] and against comparisons between Allah and any created beings.[6] It praises Allah for giving the Earth with all its wealth to mankind. According to this surah, all wonders of the natural world, like seas, stars, mountains are proofs of God's infinite power.[7] The verse 66 talks about the miracle in milk formation in cattle: "From what is within their bodies, between excretions and blood, We produce for your drink, milk, pure and agreeable to those who drink it." The verse 67 talks about miracle of vine: "And from the fruit of the date-palm and the vine, ye get out strong drink and wholesome food: behold, in this also is a sign for those who are wise". The verse [Quran 16:103] addresses the allegations that Muhammad has invented the Qur'an. And your Lord taught the honey bee to build its cells in hills, on trees, and in (men's) habitations; Then to eat of all the produce (of the earth), and find with skill the spacious paths of its Lord: there issues from within their bodies a drink of varying colours, wherein is healing for men: verily in this is a Sign for those who give thought.[8][9]
