BEE, which is one of the most beautiful and perfect creatures created by God, turns out to contain many kikmah that we can learn.
وَأَوْحَى رَبُّكَ إِلَى النَّحْلِ أَنِ اتَّخِذِي مِنَ الْجِبَالِ بُيُوتاً وَمِنَ الشَّجَرِ وَمِمَّا يَعْرِشُونَ
"And your Lord revealed to the bees to make mountains, trees, and dwellings a nesting place." (QS. an-Nahl :68)
مِن بُطُونِهَا شَرَابٌ مُّخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهُ فِيهِ شِفَاء لِلنَّاسِ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لآيَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ
"From the bee's stomach comes out a drink (honey) of various colors, inside which is a healing medicine for humans. Indeed, there really is a sign (of Rabb's greatness) for those who think." (QS. An-Nahl : 69)
Like a worker who works hard every day, with such an abundant income, but the worker only takes 10% of his income, 90% of which he gives to others, the question is can many people or ourselves want to do that?
The answer may be there and a small part is possible, very small, but this does not apply to bees, of the total bee consumption, it turns out that only 10% of the honey production from the Bee was consumed by themselves, meaning that 90% of their production, who are they "alms" for? For humans.
Conclusion? Bees were indeed created by God to serve humans, so it is very ungrateful, we have been facilitated by God through this bee through honey to meet human needs.
However, beyond it all, it's really bees thinking so much about others, they're thinking more about how to give and share for others especially humans with their product, Subhanallah.
Are any of us willing and able to share 90% of what we get? maybe we are not like beekeeping but it turns out that one of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah dared to give for Allah and His Messenger by giving all his wealth (100%) , he was Abu bakr Radiyallahu anhu.
Let's emulate the principle of the benefits of bees so that we become human beings who think more about others and share with others and that all makes us happier, healthier and richer, believe me.
