Presentation: The Miracle of the Honeybee

The Miracle of the Honeybee

Watch this presentation to learn the amazing skills of honeybees, witness their art of architecture and see how the bees reflect God's wisdom, as it is reflected in the Qur'an: Your Lord inspired the bees... (An-Nahl, 68)

And they have other uses for them, and drinks. So will they not be thankful? (Surah Ya Sin: 73)

Civil wars, slaughter, problems within families, people who kill without a qualm, children living on the streets, people freezing to death from a lack of shelter, murderers no older than children, youth gangs, civic and political corruption . . .

When one thinks about these social problems, which have become part and parcel of today's daily life, the same imperfection can be seen at the root of them all. This same common imperfection also underlies such corrupt moral values as injustice, fraud, hypocrisy and ruthlessness that cause these problems to emerge.

This grave imperfection is that people fail to think-and thus, fail to see the truth. For such people, all that matters is their own interests, their own lives. They are unconcerned by what goes on around them. At the same time, what limited topics they do think about, again center upon themselves. For that reason, they live within the confines of their own rights and wrongs. They regard living the course of their daily lives as sufficient, never sparing a thought for vital issues such as the reason for their presence in this world.

They never consider the features of the living things around them, or how it is that these have emerged so flawlessly and in such variety. They are therefore unaware that all these things-their own bodies, the equilibrium in the heavens, in short, everything and anything-are created by God. They are unable to properly appreciate Him, the Creator of the entire universe, and His infinite might. They never become aware of the reason for their own creation and the fact that they owe responsibilities to God. The fact is, however, that a great many verses in the Qur'an emphasize the importance of thinking and the fact that only thoughtful people will heed advice.

Verses refer to people who think and thus achieve awareness of the might of God:

In the creation of the heavens and the Earth, and the alternation of night and day, there are signs for people with intelligence: those who remember God, standing, sitting and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the Earth: "Our Lord, You have not created this for nothing. Glory be to You! So safeguard us from the punishment of the Fire." (Surah Al 'Imran: 190-191) .....
