Worker Bees Are All Females

Honey Bees

In the Quran there is something strange about number 16 and the bees. Chapter 16 is called "The Bees". The only verse that mentions the bees is made up of 16 words. And those words are made up of 16 different letters.

It turned out that bees have something odd in their chromosomes. Female bees have 32 chromosomes while males have 16 chromosomes (Males have no father. Males are unfertilized eggs of the mother, just like Jesus).

Worker bees, those who gather pollen and make the honey, are actually all females. Male bees do not make honey. This was only known recently. However 1400 years ago the Quran refers to bees that generate the honey as females (the Arabic grammar is in the female mode):

[Quran 16.68-69] And your Lord (Allah) revealed to the bees: Build your hives in mountains, trees and in what they build. Then eat (for females) from every fruit and follow (for females) your Lord's enslaved paths, from its bellies (بُطُونِهَا) exits drink of different colors, in it healing for man. These are signs for those who contemplate.
  • For the word "eat": "Kuli" is for females; "Kul" is for males. The Quran used "Kuli" (females).

  • For the word "follow a path": "Usluki" is for females; "Usluk" is for males. The Quran used "Usluki" (females).

  • For the word "its bellies": "butuniha" is for females; "butunihim" is for males. The Quran used "butuniha" (females).

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that those honey making bees are females?

Butuniha بُطُونِهَا in Arabic means multiple stomachs of a single female. Today we know that a honey bee has an extra stomach dedicated for honey.

  • For the word "its bellies": "butuniha" is for a single female. "butunihin" is for multiple females. The Quran used "butuniha" single female.

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that a honey bee has an extra stomach for honey?

Bees build their hives from their own wax however scientists just discovered bees that build hives in wood and even in solid rock.

Carpenter bees drill their hives in wood.

Some bees can even drill in solid rock.

See: 'Unusual' Bee Species Drills Apartment-Style Nests Out of Rock.

"And your Lord (Allah) revealed to the bees: Build your hives in mountains, trees and in what they build..." God ordered the bees to drill in mountains (solid rock), trees (wood) in addition to the known wax hives.

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that bees can drill in solid rock?

(The Christian Bible erroneously claims that there are four legged insects Leviticus 11:20. It also claims that there is an animal that has "flames stream from its mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. Smoke pours from its nostrils as from a boiling pot over burning reeds. Its breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from its mouth". Job 41:19-21)
