Then eat from all the fruits, following the design of your Lord, precisely. From their bellies comes a drink of different colors, wherein there is healing for the people. This should be (sufficient) proof for people who reflect. (16:68-9)

What Hadith says about BEE : 

anoekamie '08 What Hadith says about BEE There are several prophetic hadiths dealing with BEES & HONEY. The Prophet (PBUH) said: 'Honey is a remedy for every illness and the Qur'an is a remedy for all illness of the mind, therefore I recommend to you both remedies, the Qur'an and honey.'(Bukhari) روي عن أنس قال لقد سَقَيْتُ رسولَ الله بقَدَحى هذا الشّرابَ كلَّه العسلَ والنّبيذَ والماءَ والّلبنَ (رواه البخارى والمسلم) Anas, may Allah be pleased with him, reported: I served Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) to drink in this cup of mine honey, nabidh, water, and milk. (Bukhari and Muslim)

Slide 6: 

anoekamie '08 So it’s God’s inspiration to build the hives, to eat from the fruits, and to create the honey. It’s God’s inspiration and overall design. Bees appeared perhaps 100 million years ago, coinciding with the appearance of the first true flowering plants. In God’s beautiful system, the flowers and the bees are dependent on each other. The color and smell of the flower is not for man, although we can and should enjoy it. It’s to attract the bees to insure the flower’s survival. And if the flower didn’t produce nectar and pollen, the bee wouldn’t survive.

THE BENEFITS OF HONEY : 

anoekamie '08 THE BENEFITS OF HONEY Antibacterial and antifungal properties Anti-diarrhoeal properties Wound-healing and anti-inflammatory properties Anti-tussive and expectorant properties Nutritional properties Acupuncture

Slide 8: 

anoekamie '08 HONEY Honey is a thick liquid produced by certain types of bees from the nectar of flowers. While many species of insects consume nectar, honeybees refine and concentrate nectar to make honey.  Indeed, they make lots of honey so they will have plenty of food for times when flower nectar is unavailable, such as winter. Unlike most insects, honeybees remain active through the winter, consuming and metabolizing honey in order to keep from freezing to death. Early humans probably watched bears and other mammals raid bee hives for honey and then tried it themselves. Once people found out what honey was, next they had to learn how to get it from the bees safely!

Slide 9: 

anoekamie '08 THE HIVE Honeybees are social insects.  In the wild, they create elaborate nests called hives containing up to 20,000 individuals during the summer months.  (Domestic hives may have over 80,000 bees.)  They work together in a highly structured social order. Each bee belongs to one of three specialized groups called castes. There are 40,000 to 80,000 workers in a hive, all female. To have that many creatures in such a small space, there must be great organization, a clear division of labor. Indeed there is. It’s amazingly precise and straightforward, and remarkably complex. How is it that all 50 or 60 thousand insects understand their role and perform their jobs without complaint or confusion? IT’S GOD’S EXTRAORDINARY DESIGN.

Slide 10: 

anoekamie '08 Within a honeybee hive, there are three types of bees Queens There is only one queen in a hive and her main purpose in life is to make more bees. She can lay over 1,500 eggs per day and will live two to eight years.    Drones Drones, since they are males, have no stinger. Their sole function is to mate with a new queen, if one is produced in a given year.    Workers Worker bees do all the different tasks needed to maintain and operate the hive. They make up the vast majority of the hive's occupants and they are all sterile females. When young, they are called house bees and work in the hive doing comb construction, brood rearing, tending the queen and drones, cleaning, temperature regulation and defending the hive. Older workers are called field bees. They forage outside the hive to gather nectar, pollen, water and certain sticky plant resins used in hive construction.

Slide 11: 

anoekamie '08 THE HONEYCOMB The central feature of the bee hive is the honeycomb. This marvel of insect engineering consists of flat vertical panels of six-sided cells made of beeswax. The cells within the comb will be used to raise young and to store honey and pollen. The comb is two-sided, with cells on both sides. The cells are perfectly uniform in shape. Not only that, but the combs are built a precise distance apart depending on whether they are meant to contain food or young bees. The nursery area of the hive is called the brood comb, and that is where the queen lays her eggs.

Bees Communicate : 

anoekamie '08 Bees Communicate A highly organized social structure exists within the colony and elaborate 'dances' are used to communicate the location of food sources. Honey bees are known to communicate through many different chemicals and odors, as is common in insects, but also using specific behaviors that convey information about the quality and type of resources in the environment, and where these resources are located. The details of the signaling being used vary from species to species; for example, the two smallest species dance on the upper surface of the comb, which is horizontal (not vertical, as in other species), and workers orient the dance in the actual compass direction of the resource to which they are recruiting.

Slide 13: 

anoekamie '08 WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT BEE? Honeybees are one of science's great mysteries because they have remained unchanged for 20 million years, even though the world changed around them. Bees have been producing honey for at least 150 million years. The honeybee's wings stroke 11,400 times per minute, thus making their distinctive buzz. A bee flies at a rate of about 12 miles per hour. Bee is one of animals that mentioned in the Holy Qur’an and Hadith (an Nakhl)

THINGS TO NOTICE : 

anoekamie '08 THINGS TO NOTICE There are over 25,000 kinds of bees in the world.  Honey never spoils. No need to refrigerate it. It can be stored unopened, indefinitely, at room temperature in a dry cupboard. Honey contains vitamins and antioxidants, but is fat free, cholesterol free and sodium free! Honey is the only food that includes all the substances necessary to sustain life, including water. Honey supplies 2 stages of energy. The glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost. The fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy
