Qur'an, An-Nahl, Surah 16:68-69
Your Lord inspired the bee, saying: 'Build your homes in the mountains, in the trees, and in the hives which people make for you. Feed on every kind of blossom.' He ordered them obediently to follow his ways. From the belly of the bee comes a fluid of many colours, which is a healing drink for humans. Surely this is a sign for people who ponder it.
