    • Jazakallah Khair! I really enjoyed doing the research for this article,I’m a keen gardener, and the bees in my garden were one of the many reasons why I got interested in this topic.

    • Madam. Great job ! You guys at productive Muslim team ..always bring such amazing articles that help open my understanding even better.
      Ma sha Allah. Keep going.

    • Jazakallah Khair, for your positive feedback, I’m in the middle of writing an article about explaining the facts of life to our kids, ia hope to have the finished soon.

  1. Assalamu ‘alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
    MashaAllah, An Excellent way of putting across the lessons from a bee. No one would have ever expected that bee can teach us obeying Allah, attaining a pure rizq or to care for our communities. Many of us know that we can learn team work from bees, thats it. Hence, this was indeed one of the best articles I have read so far.
    Jazaakallahu Khair Sister.

    • Walaikum Asalam,
      It really means a lot to me to know that someone has learnt something about our beautiful deen from an article I have written, Alhumdulilah,ia please share the knowledge!

    • Ameen, Please share the knowledge with your friends and family, especially young children as they generally are scared of bees but once you explain to them what they are doing it really peaks their interest.

  2. As-Salam Alaykun. Very inspirational & nice Maa Sha Allah☝️ May Allah swt continue to make this work easy for you.
    Jazakumulah Khrain.

  3. Assalaamu alaykum honeybees ? continuously contribute goodness to every part of the creation whether it’s us or the flowers ? or themselves it reminds me of the well of zam zam and now Surah Ar-Rahman becomes that much more clearer SubhaanAllah.BarakAllah feeq wa salaamu alaykum wa rahmatullah.

  4. Assalsmakum thankyou for sharing this knowlege honey is a sunnah on us and so benifial to ourhealth how much work from those little being subnallah

    • Walaikum Asalam,
      Alhamdulilah, they are very hard working, it is a real shame that their numbers are declining, a very easy way for us to help them is to plant more flowers in our gardens, if you don’t have a garden, plant some flowers in a pot and have it outside your house, or a hanging basket ia.

  5. Alhamdu Lillah. Beautiful article. May Allah(SWT) bless you and yours . And the great benefits of Honey is still to be examined. One question( as you researched) Do bees fight among themselves ? Jazakallahu Khairan

    • Wasalam
      Based on the reading I’ve done so far I haven’t found anything that describes them fighting, each bee has a specific role it fulfils for the well being of the hive.

  6. After reading the amount of work bees do to make honey,I deeply appreciate its value. For the past years,I have consumed half a teaspoon of honey in lemonade or tea on a daily basis. It provides immunity from cold and flu as well as a feeling of general wellness. Whilst traveling,I pack a small bottle of honey plus a few lemons. Indeed, Allah is bountiful in his Creations and Wise in his advice. Thanks for a great article !

  7. Amazing! I love this article. It inspires me to learn more about honey bee. Also jazakAllahu kheyran to the writer.

  8. Macha ALLAH, What a great article, I learned a lot from reading it and I will share it with others. Incha ALLAH. MAY ALLAH REWARD YOU FOR YOUR GREAT WORK. AMIN

  9. Jazakallah for sharing with us this article. This teaches us how to be productive and to obtain pure rizq. This small bee can teach us humans such amazing lessons.

    • I completely agree with you about how much we can learn from a little bee, if they can be so good then, ia so can we.

  10. The honey bee article is superb. There is more to it, if you could listen to Nouman Ali khan’s lecture on Be Like A Bee on YouTube. I am amazed. With the way Allah swt has spoken about this tiny creature and how important its presence is. Only the true creator can do this.

  11. A great article to start my day with. when reading such articles one can only ponder and reflect on the greatness of his creation subhanahu wata’ala. Jazakum Allah khairan for sharing!

  12. Mashallah- this was a very inspirational article. A lot of scientific information along with spiritual insight and social parallelism. Good stuff!! Thank you and Jazikallah Khair!

  13. Thank you so much sister for this great piece. I found this very informative for my children and me. Would you please write other articles on ants/plants/electricity/lightning etc. that relate to the verses in the Quran? Thanks again sis!

  14. Thank you so much for this article. It is inspiring indeed. Let’s hope our Muslim brothers and sisters will put all these lessons into practice and make it a better day.
    Jaazaakum Allah khayran!

  15. SubhanAllah ! What a lovely article. The points are jotted down beautifully and make you reflect on how good a slave are we of ALLAH SWT, how much we need to improve in Shukr always. I am going to read this again to absorb more iA . Looking forward to your other posts too and can’t wait to explain all this to my baby when he grows up iA . JazakAllah Khair !

  16. JazakkAllah khair! Wonderful article
    Before reading the article I was in a shop inquiring about honey, and the shopkeeper told me the best honey is sidr….that which is cultivated in yemen in hydramaut mountain. I would also like to share that on bee we are not only benifitted frm honey but frm propolis aswell wc is know as natural potent antibiotic…..of course apart from lesson we learn.

  17. Thanks a lot.Really,there are many lessons to be learnt from bees.Be like a bee and NOT like a housefly.For a bee always seeks clean and pure and a housefly always looks and sits on rubbish.It would be very good if we ,muslims could take those valuable lessons from a honey bee ,we would be able to seek ALLAAH SWT’s pleasure.

  18. Honey bees teach us a good way how to communicate with others and work together to earn a halaal rizq, I also reminds the role of a person in his family to achieve allah pleasure. Very good article Jazakallah Khairyat.

  19. Wonderful and inspiring… ” Which of the favour of Allah will you deny “.
    Keep doing a fantastic and a rewardable job.

  20. Ma shaa Allah! Very inspiring article. Alhamdulillah May Allah reward you for sharing it with us and keep the good work going.
    Jazakallahu Khairan

  21. Asalaamu alaikum dear sisterMasha Allah well compiled.May Allah subhanuwathala reward you for your service.

  22. JazaakAllahu Khayran for sharing this informative and insightful article. A good read for learning the ‘purpose’, ‘essence’, ‘value’ and ‘need’ of life. I have learnt a lot to change positively in productivity! May Allah continue to guide and protect you and the Productive Muslim team with His blessings and mercies on this productive journey. Amiin Ya Rabbi!

  23. Allahu Akbar!!!what Allah had been created are showing the oneness of ALLAH s.b h w.I learnt a great lesson in this article.allau akbar

  24. Assalamu alikum, Really it’s great useful collection. Allah inspires us to learn from small bees and really happy to study here. Subhanallah how amazing creature is it??!! Expect more articles from you in such different approach. may allah swt accept our intentions.
    “Rabbana ma kalktha haatha bathila subhanaka wa kina adha bannar.”

  25. Asalaamu alaykum warahamatullahi wabarakatuh,
    I really enjoyed reading this article and learnt a number of new things masha’Allah. I especially liked the practical tips, it can be hard to know how to implement what you learn at times. Jazakallahu khayr.

  26. MashAllah! A very well written article. I found this article very insightful and useful, and am looking forward to more such great articles.

  27. Assalamu alaikum W W,
    Jazakallahu Khairan for this wonderful article. No wonder the Prophet (pbuh) said: مثل المؤمن مثل النحلة، لا تأكل إلا طيبا، ولا تضع إلا طيبا “The likening of the believer is the likening of the honey bee. It will not consume except what is good and will not lay except what is good”. In another narration: ووقعت فلم تكسر ولم تفسد ” It will neither break the one on which it sits nor spoils”.
    Subhanallah, these narrations underline the whole scientific findings of our time.

  28. Assalamu Alaikum to all brothers and sisters. This is a very inspiring and motivational article by our sister in Islam. Should be saved to read from time to time to be continuously motivated.

  29. salamo alaikom,
    Thanks sister for your contribution to increase Muslims’ knowledge about the greatness of ALLAH (swt) from a simple example which we really do not pay much consideration to it. like a bee Muslims should strive and work to lift their ummah.I am a Masters student and I am really eager to work with your team Productive Muslim. I want to have a share in sensitizing my brothers and sisters in Islam, if there is an opportunity to join you I will be extremely happy.I pray to ALLAH to make all our effort productive and efficient. I am waiting for your reply

  30. Alhamdulliah great article..!

    BUT I FOUND it a little awk and tough to contact to the local masjid ? Any suggestions

    • Inshallah attend the masjid regularly for salah and other events they organise that way you can start getting to know some of the people at the masjid and they will get to know you. Then ia you can volunteer to help, I’m sure they need help in some area, you can offer to help in the office, do DIY, help set up Jummah etc. If it doesn’t work out at one masjid ia try another, I hope that helps.

  31. Great work and very thought provoking too! Quran has soo many lessons ,it is upto us to ponder deeply into its meanings and benefit from them.May Allah guide us all to just not recite Quran but to understand it too.
    Thanx for sharing your knowledge.May Allah bless you in this life and herefter.Ameen.

  32. jazakumAllahu kheiran for this very effective article. May Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala reward u with goodness Amin. Another lesson we can take from the honeybees is:
    -every bee has their own role. There is a structure in the society that structure helps them to move on at take the best advantage out of it.
    -the end product is so valuable and the better u worked the better tasty honey result u get.

  33. As Salamoualeykoum what a great article. It reminds me the awsome khutbah “Be like the bee” performed by Nouman Ali Khan ! When you compiled this 2 ressources, you end up with a great understanding of the ayah and the life of bees !

  34. JazakAllahu Khayr for beautiful articles.. I m not going to add any lesson but just want to share my feelings, how perfect Allah has made His creation, SubhanAllah.. They work in perfect manner and they in return help plants too.. This is Allah’s perfection, the lord of the worlds.. May Allah keep us steadfast in His path always.. Ameen..

  35. Jazaka’Allahu khair for this precious lessons. I was specially moved by the sixth lesson. It is such a noble quality we strongly need to revive and inculcate in our children. As for another lesson we can extract from the life of a honeybee, is the sense of sacrifice. Indeed, when a honeybee feel danger, it sacrifices its life to protect the hive. Similarly, we need to sacrifice more of our time and wishes that benefits only our person, to start concrete actions and give life to our resolutions for the sake of better conditions of the Oummah and all of the earth and definitely..for the sake of ALLAH. May Allah make you and me part of the change…

  36. AlhamdulilLah. I have learnt a lot and will share it with family and friends. JazakalLahu khairan. May Allah SWT accept your effort as an act of ibada.

  37. I teach a small gp of housewives every week for 2 hrs and found this article through one of my class attendee while going through Surah Nahl. JazakAllah khair kaseer Productive Muslim team.
