Bees are amazing creation of Allah and they have been given a distinct honor. Bees receive revelation, a direct command, from Allah.
It is mentioned in the Quran that Allah sends ‘Wahi” to bees, Wahi is a supernatural Divine Inspiration, something similar to what was being sent to Prophets. The verse said:
And your Lord inspired to the bee, “Take for yourself among the mountains, houses, and among the trees and [in] that which they construct. Then eat from all the fruits and follow the ways of your Lord laid down [for you].” There emerges from their bellies a drink, varying in colors, in which there is healing for people.
