16-68- And your Lord taught the honey bee to build its cells in hills, on trees, and in (men’s) habitations;
16-69- 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. (Surat an-Nahl (The Bee), 68-69)
usually have to fly long distances and trace large areas to find food. They
collect flower dust and honey constituent within a range of 800 m. from their
hive. The bee which finds the flowers flies back to the hive to inform others
about their place. But, how will this bee describe the place of the flowers to
its friends in the hive? By dancing!… The bee returning to the hive starts to
make some sort of a dance. This dance is a means of expression used to tell
other bees the location of the flowers. This dance repeated many times by the
bee, includes all the information about the inclination, direction, distance and
other details of the food source that enable other bees to reach it.
dance is actually an “8”
figure constantly repeated by the bee. The bee forms the middle part of the
by shaking its tail and making zig zags. The angle between the zig zags and the
line between the sun and the hive, gives the exact direction of the food source
(the below picture).
More about Quran and bees :
Bassam Jarrar (Noon center ) noticed that the
bee possess 16
and that is the number of the Sura Annahl.
He noticed too that the word ‘ Bee’ occurs in verse 68 and this verse has 13
68 * 13 = 884 . Then he counted the words
from the beginning of the sura till the word ‘Bee’ in verse 68 and at his
surprise there were exactly 884 words !!!!!
Now what abou t the number 8
saw in the article above that the dance of the bee is in the form of an EIGHT
and I think that he has a relation
with our sura.
sura ‘The Bee’ has 128 verses. And if we divide 128 with 8 we get 16
!!!and this is the number of our sura.( By the way notice that :
* 2 = 16 )
you count the words of the last verse number 128 we have 8 words
!!! and 32 letters(double of 16).and
: 8 * 32 = 256 = 16 * 16
multiplicate the last verse (128) with 8 (words) : 128
* 8 = 1024 and √1024
(32 = 16+16 = letters of this verse)
Note that the number 32 play an important role in the life of the bee.read this article of Harun Yahia :
Regulation of humidity:
Temperature in the hive has to be 32 degrees Celsius for 10 months of the year during the brooding period. Humidity, which principally causes honey to attain its protective quality, must be kept within a certain limit in the hive. If this limit is exceeded, then the honey gets spoiled upon loosing its protective and nutritious qualities. In order to constantly maintain the temperature and humidity in the hive within these exact limits, a special "ventilation group" is appointed just for this important task.
Air conditioning: Bees ventilate the hive to make it cool and produce honey containing the right humidity caliber. The same ventilation system is used to safeguard the hive from smoke and air pollution. During a hot day, it is easy to observe the bees ventilating the hive. The entrance of the hive is full of bees and by clamping on the wooden floor they fan the hive using their wings. In a standard hive, the entering air is forced to leave from the other side. The extra ventilators in the hive also labor for pushing the air to four different directions.
This time another question comes to mind, how do the bees "plan" and "carry out" the operations for the regulation of humidity and air conditioning? These operations need immense "intelligence" and "consciousness". We already know that it is not possible for these animals to possess these abilities. Then, the real source of this intelligence and consciousness must be found.
verses are talking about the Bee : 68 and 69 .
look for the
verse 8 and 16
* 68 = 884
We see that this table brings all the elements of sura Annahl
: total of verses or last verse
: total of the words of this last verse
32 : total of letters of this last verse
: number of the verse where occurs the word ‘Bee’
: the total of the sum of the verses where Allah speaks about the bee (68+69)
: the total of the words from the
beginning of the sura till the word
Bee or the product of verse number where occurs the word bee (68) with his words
can see that the sum of verse 8
is 24 . 8+16= 24
if make the sum of the words and letters of verse 16 you have 4 (words) + 20 (letters) = 24
wanted to know where is the middle of the sura 16. This sura has (if I didn’t
made errors ) has 7723 letters. That means that the middle is : 7723 / 2 =
3861.5 .And because half letter doesn’t exist we take 3861 letters. And you
will be surprised to know tha the letter 3861 ist exactly the last one of the
(the last verse that speak about the
time the number 19
: one is the 19 th verse; 6 verses have 19 words and one verse has 19 letters .(
whats about the cells of the bee ?

16-68- And your Lord taught the honey bee to build its cells
in hills, on trees, and in
have been using the hexagonal structure for the construction of the honeycombs
for millions of years. (There is a bee fossil is found dating 100 million
years.) It is a wonder why they have chosen the hexagonal
rather than octagonal, or pentagonal? The answer is given by the mathematicians:
“hexagonal structure is the most suitable geometric form for maximum use of
unit area” If the honeycomb cells were constructed in another form, then there
would be areas left out of use; thus less honey would be stored, and less bees
would be able to benefit from it.
long as their depths are the same, a triangle or quadrangle cell would hold the
same amount of honey as a
cell. But, among all these geometric forms, hexagon
is the one with the shortest circumference. Whilst they have the same volume,
amount of wax required for hexagonal cells is less than that required for a
triangular or quadrangular one.
the conclusion is:
Hexagonal cell requires minimum amount of wax for construction while it stores
maximum amount of honey. This result, obtained after many complex geometrical
calculations, can surely not have been calculated by bees themselves. These tiny
animals use the hexagon form innately, just because they are “taught” and
inspired so by their Lord.
hexagonal design of the cells is practical in many aspects. Cells fit to each
other and they share each other’s walls. This, again, ensures maximum storage
with minimum wax. Although the walls of the cells are rather thin, they are
strong enough to sustain a few times of their own weight.
the side walls, the same principle of maximum saving is considered also while
the bottom edges are constructed.
are built as a slice with two lines lying back to back, where the connection
point problem occurs. This problem is solved by constructing the bottom surfaces
of cells by combining three equilateral quadrangles. When three cells are built
on one face of the comb, the bottom surface of one cell on the other face is
the bottom surface is composed of equilateral quadrangle wax plaques, the depth
increases in these cells, which results in an increase in the volume and thus in
the amount of honey to be stored.
think that there is a relation beetween sura Annahl with her hexagonal cell and
the next sura, sura 17 ‘ Al Isra’ or’Bani Israil’ wich fortell the end
of the second state of Israel.Soon I will publish something about it.
1895, William Radcliffe discovered, after much trial and error, that
nineteen hexagonal pieces numbered from 1 to 19 can be assembled so that
each row of three, four or five hexagons adds up to 38. In 1963, Charles
Trigg proved that it is the only magic hexagon of any
= 38 = 19 * 2
This is a diameter-5 magic hexagon.
Each integer from 1 to 19 appears exactly once, and the sum of the numbers along
any column or diagonal is the same (38 = 19 * 2). It is easy to prove that 1 and
5 are the only possible magic hexagon diameters, using the numbers from 1 to the
hexagon size. The diameter-1 magic hexagon is trivial, and the diameter-5 magic
hexagon is essentially unique. (There are 12 variations which arise by rotating
and reflecting the hexagon under the action of the dihedral group of order 12).

Quran's STUNNING Divine Miracles: 
Allah Almighty also promised in several Divine Prophecies that He will show the Glorious Quran's Miracles to mankind:
1- The root letters for "message" and all of its derivatives occur513 times throughout the Glorious Quran. Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the Prophets' and Messengers' actual names (Muhammad, Moses, Noah, Abraham, Lot etc....) were also all mentioned 513 times in the Glorious Quran. The detailed breakdown of all of this is thoroughly listed here. This Miracle is covered in 100s (hundreds) of Noble Verses.
2- Allah Almighty said that Prophet Noah lived for950 years. Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the entire Noble Surah (chapter Noah) is exactly written in 950 Letters. You can thoroughly see the accurate count in the scanned images.
