The worker bees, those who gather pollen and make the honey, are actually all females. The 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 people build. Then eat (for females) from every fruit and follow (for females) your Lord's enslaved paths, from their bellies (for females) 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 "their bellies": "butuniha" is for females; "butunihim" is for males. The Quran used "butuniha" (females).
How could an unlearned (uneducated) man who lived 1400 years ago have known that those honey making bees are females?
(Contrary to reality, the Christian Bible 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)
