BE LIKE A HONEYBEE (For children!!!)
As Salaam beatiful children,
Honeybees land on the flowers and collect polens from the flowers. They fly to each flower and pick some nectar than move to the next flower then return to their hives. They produce honey from these collected polens and fill this honey in to the cells of honeycomb. There are various benefits in honey for our health. Subhan Allahu Teala created many flowers, fruits for us in nature and put various minerals, vitamins in to them. Honey bees collect them for us and bring them together in a honey mixture which will be good for our health.
Honey is composed of sugars like glucose and fructose and minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, iron and phosphate. It contains vitamins B1, B2, C, B6, B5 and B3 all of which change according to the qualities of the nectar and pollen. Besides the above, copper, iodine, and zinc exist in it in small quantities.
Honey can treat our wounds, ulcers, burns on our skin, prevents cancer, fights with germs.
Qur’an is like a big universe, every surah in it is a part of nature. There are a lot of trees giving fruits and flowers for us in these surahs. We need to be like honey bee. We need to fly in to Qur’an and collect beatiful meanings from Qur’an and bring these meanings together to learn knowledge. These meanings will be like honey which we will be filling in to our hearts, just as the bees fill the honeycombs with honey. These beatiful knowledge will protect us against evil and fight with evil qualities just as honey fights with germs in the body. Allah created benefits for our heart and soul in Qur’an. The knowledge which we will be gathering from Qur’an will cure the diseases in our hearts.
Bees can communicate to other bees the distance, direction, quality, and quantity of a food source with a unique dance. So We should be letting each other know about where we are learning this knowledge from and share our honey(knowledge) with our brothers and sisters.
Bees work as a community. So We should be working as a community in Islam, pray together as jamaat and help eachother in the way of Allah. We should share what we learn from Qur’an with the other children and learn more.
We must be like a honey bee If We want to be a good muslim and fly in the Qur’an .
Subhan Allahu wa Teala , explained the torments of hell fire as well as the beauty of paradise in the Qur’an so that We should have fear of Allah by thinking about hell fire. A lot of things were mentioned in Qur’an with it’s opposites e.g.Night-Daylight, sweet-bitter, haram-halal and hell-paradise.
We can see these opposite issues in honeybees as well. Some honeybees in nature , lands on poisonuous plants and collect polens from these poisonous flowers. When they make honey, their honey become toxic and it makes you intoxicated when you eat them and it is not good for human health.
There are some human honeybees out there who fly and land on the flower of lieing, flower of arrogancy, flower of cheating, flower of meanness, flower of stealing, flower of bullying, flower of violence and many other bad flowers like that. They go and collect their polen from the flowers and fruits of Shaiytan.
So the honey they make from these flowers and fruits will be cheating, lieing, arrogancy, drunkness, stinginess, gambling, stealing, trickery, greediness and many other poisionus human qualities. We need to keep away form these sorts of people.
If We make friends with these sorts of people, We will be effected by their bad qualities. They are like bumblebees which will sting us.
So We should select our friends carefully, be a good honeybee and pray for them so that they could be a good honey bee like us as well. We should always listen to our mothers and fathers and take our prophet, Muhammad (SAW ) as an example for our selves.
We should learn Islam and be a good honeybee. Poisonuous flowers and fruits were shown to us in Qur’an by Allah and in hadiths by Rasulullah(SAW ).
We need to read and learn these bad flowers not to poison our selves with bad qualities. We need to make good honey from good fruits and flowers.
In this case, our honey will be (good moral & qualities of Rasulullah (SAW ), knowledge, wisdom and pure faith). Our honey will be Noor(light) of Allah.
Shaiytan is a thief who steals our honey from our honeyhives(hearts) and We should be very careful. He approaches to our honeyhives from our front, behind, left and right. He is wearing a protective clothing and we can not see him, We can only see him with the noor (light) of Allah.
“And your Lord revealed to the bee saying: Make hives in the mountains and in the trees and in what they build: Then eat of all the fruits and walk in the ways of your Lord submissively. There comes forth from within it a beverage of many colours, in which there is healing for men; most surely there is a sign in this for a people who reflect.” (Surat an-Nahl, 68-69)
“43.Verily the tree of Zaqqum, 44. Will be the food of the Sinful” (Surat Dukhan 43-44)
“62.Is that the better entertainment or the Tree of Zaqqum?, 63. For We have truly made it (as) a trial for the wrong-doers, 64. For it is a tree that springs out of the bottom of Hell-Fire:, 65. The shoots of its fruit-stalks are like the heads of devils: 66. Truly they will eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith.” (Surat Saffat, 62-66)
