BE LIKE THE BEE

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Dear readers and my lovely friends,

I hope all of you’re always blessed, إن شاء ألله .

The word “Bee” in Arabic is  “ النّحل ” , Allah has immortalized the name of this animal in His noble qurán in surah ألنحل. Besides it, there are several surahs that were taken from the name of animals, like the spider (العنكبوت  ) the ant (النّمل ), the elephant (الفيل),the cattle ( الأنعام) the chargers (العاديات) and the cow (البقرة).

Allah has said in Qurán Kareem, the verse about “Bees” surah An-nahl verse 68 and 69.

وَأَوْحَى رَبُّكَ إِلَى النَّحْلِ أَنِ اتَّخِذِى مِنَ الْجِباَ لِ بُيُوْتًا وَمِنَ الشَّجَرِ وَمِمَّا يَعْرِشُوْنَ.

ثُمَّ كُلِى مِنْ كُلِّ الثَّمَرَاتِ فَاسْلُكِى سُبُلَ رَبِّكِ ذُلُلًا يَخْرُجُ مِنْ بُطُوْنِهَا شَرَابٌ مُّخْتَلِفٌ اَلْوَانُهُ فِيْهِ شِفَاءٌ لِلنَّاسِ إِنَّ فِى ذَالِكَ لَآيَةً لِّقَوْمِ يَتَفَكَّرُوْنَ.

Your Lord predisposed the bees to make their hives in mountains, trees and trellises, (68) And suck from all fruits and flit about the unrestricted path of their Lord. A drink of various hues comes out of their bellies which contains medicine for men. In this is a sign for those who reflect. (69).

          The bees are so special. So I feel, I should search about it. Here are about the bees from Wikipedia:

Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants, and are known for their role in pollination and for producing honey and beeswax. They are found on every continent except Antarctica, in every habitat on the planet that contains insect-pollinated flowering plants. Bees are adapted for feeding on nectar and pollen, the former primarily as an energy source and the latter primarily for protein and other nutrients. Most pollen is used as food for larvae.The best-known bee species is the European honey bee, which, as its name suggests, produces honey, as do a few other types of bee.”

Rasulullah has said; The parable of the believers are LIKE THE BEE. It eats a clean/ good food, issued something clean, perched in a clean and not damage or break its host.(Ahmad, Al-hakim and Al-Bazzar)

1.Perched in clean places and eating a good food:

Bees just landed in clean places. Bees will only come to the flowers or fruits that contain honey or nectar. Similarly, a muslim.

As Allah said in surah (Al-Baqarah: 168)

“O men, eat only the things of the earth that are lawful and good. Do not walk in the footsteps of Satan, your acknowledged enemy”

2. Issued something clean.

We have known, bees produce honey . It has many benefits for human. I do know that, and I prefer honey to coffee. I drink black honey frequently, for keeping my health. When I was pregnant, I also drank it, mixed with an egg الحمدلله  I felt strong and much healthier.

The following are some of honey’s best-known health benefits; whether confirmed by science or passed down through folk tradition, they prove honey to be as efficacious as it is delicious.

a.Soothes coughs.
b.Boosts memory.
c.Treats wounds.
d.Provides nutrients .

e.Potentially prevents low white blood cell count.
f.May relieve seasonal allergies.
g.Kills antibiotic-resistant bacteria. 
h.May help metabolize alcohol.
i.Makes great workout fuel.
j.Resolves scalp problems and dandruff.

The benefits of honey

He, the Most High, also mentions honey in the Qur’an as one of the foods of paradise: “The description of Paradise which the Muttaqûn (pious) have been promised is that In it are rivers of water the taste and smell of which are not changed; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine delicious to those who drink; and rivers of clarified honey (clear and pure)…” [47:15]

Honey has also been mentioned in the authentic Sunnah. It is reported that the Prophet (‘alayhi wa salatu wa salam) said: “Cure is in three (things): a drink of honey, a slash of the knife used in Hijaamah and branding (cauterising) by fire. And I prohibit my nation from cauterising.” [Bukhari 5356]. In another hadith, it states: “Upon you is the two cures: the honey and the Qur’aan” [Ibn Maajah 3452, Shaykh al-Albani graded this hadith weak and said that it is authentic saying of Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood]

            A good muslim will give many benefits for  his family, his neighbors, his  ummah, and the other human. Because he really knows, the best of the best muslim is a muslim who can give many advantages to other. He can help other with his science, his mind, his property, or his power. So many thing he can do.

3. Never damage anything.

Bee never damage its host. It doesn’t break even a twig. So does a good muslim. He won’t damage anything, material or nonmaterial. Just the opposite, he will do some emendations in some parts, such as in tawheed, manners and practices, and keeping the world base on his abilities.

4. Work together and smart.

Bee is a wheel horse. A good muslim will never stop to work except he dies.

“So when you are free, work diligently” [94:7]

Work hard, work smart and work together with full spirit and buck for main goal.

5. Never hurt other

Bees never begin to against other or disturb the life of other, except they are feeling threatened by other. They prefer die for keeping their courtesies. The best lesson from bees. For muslim, we musn’t find the enemies, but if other against this ummah, we should unite with, and defend the courtesy of this ummah. LIVE IN THE GRAND STYLE, OR DIE BEING MARTYR. We are one in Islam.
