9 Week Assessment and Analysis
All praise is due to Allah (al hayyul Qayyoom); we praise Him and seek His aid, ask for His assistance, repent to Him and ask for His forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala from the evil consequences of our own selves and from the consequences our wicked deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides none can misguide him, and whomsoever Allah leaves astray, there will be no guide for him. I testify that there is no true god worthy of being worshipped except Allah alone without any partner or associate, and I further testify that Muhammad (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) is His true slave and Messenger. May the Salah and Salaam be upon him and upon the prophet’s pure family and his noble companions Allahumma Aameen

A Student investigation (opinion Essay) – 3 Paragraphs
As of today, in the year 1440/2018, there are many environmental issues that may affect our futures regarding the production of food, honey, and bees (Allah knows best). Surely, Allah controls all affairs. The increase in the death rate of the Bee population is one of those issues. Please discuss in writing, how you would address this problem by offering solutions to mankind.
- Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says, in surah An-Nahl – 16:68
And your Lord inspired the bee, saying: “Take you habitations in the mountains and in the trees and in what they erect.” (An-Nahl 16:68)
From Tafsir Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah)
In the Bee and its Honey there is Blessing and a Lesson
What is meant by inspiration here is guidance. The bee is guided to make its home in the mountains, in trees and in structures erected by man. The bee’s home is a solid structure, with its hexagonal shapes and interlocking forms there is no looseness in its combs. Then Allah decrees that the bee will have permission to eat from all fruits and to follow the ways which Allah has made easy for it, wherever it wants to go in the vast spaces of the wilderness, valleys and high mountains. Then each bee comes back to its hive without swerving to the right or left, it comes straight back to its home where its offspring and honey are. It makes wax from its wings, and regurgitates honey from its mouth, and lays eggs from its rear, and then the next morning it goes out to the fields again.
2nd Point of Benefit in the Explanation from Tafsir ibn Kathir:
“(There comes forth from their bellies, a drink of varying colors, wherein is healing for men.) Meaning, honey, that is white, yellow, red, or of other good colors, depending on the different things that the bees eat.
(in which there is a cure for men.) Meaning there is a cure in honey for diseases that people suffer from. Some of those who spoke about the study of Prophetic medicine said that if ﴿Allah﴾ had said,
in which there is the cure for men', then it would be the remedy for all diseases, but He said,in which there is a cure for men’, meaning that it is the right treatment for every “cold” disease, because it is “hot”, and a disease should be treated with its opposite.”
From current environmental Issues in Atlanta, Ga
After reading about what Allah says, and how it has been explained from the Tafsir, we can see that Allah has given mankind bees as a special blessing alhamdulillah. Their gift to mankind with pollination allows them to travel the globe and to produce massive amounts of honey for healing the sick.
In, our current environment though, the existence of bees has become threatened; based on how the people have genetically engineered seeds for growing plants, flowers, and foodstuff. This (GE) production causes illness and death to the bee populations during pollination cycles. May Allah forgive our ignorance and transgressions Allahumma aameen
“Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food.”
More information about the Bee
Overview Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants, known for their role in pollination and, in the case of the best-known bee species, the European honey bee, for producing honey and beeswax. Bees are a monophyletic lineage within the superfamily Apoidea and are presently considered a clade, called Anthophilia. There are nearly 20,000 known species of bees in seven recognized biological families. They are found on every continent except Antarctica, in every habitat on the planet that contains insect-pollinated flowering plants.
