Collection: The Bee

Recent discoveries has stated that the total number of chromosomes of bees are as such:

Male Bee chromosome: 16
Female Bee Chromosome: 32

Chapter 16 of the Quran is titled Chapter of The Bee (or Surah Al-Nahl) and is the only chapter in the Quran titled “The Bee”. It is worth mentioning that the number of the chromosomes of the male bee is 16 too.

This chapter is the16'th chapter and MALE bees have 16 chromosome. Then it is also interesting to know that the bottom part of this chapter or the very last verse of this chapter is:

[Quran 16:128]

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ مَعَ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّقَوا۟ وَّٱلَّذِينَ هُم مُّحْسِنُونَ ١٢٨

Surely Allah is with those who shun evil and who do good ˹deeds˺.

This verse has exactly 32 letters too. And 32 is the chromosome of the FEMALE bees too.


More interesting:

The word “Bee” is only mentioned once in the Quran, meaning it is only mentioned here in this chapter, in verse 68.

[Quran 16:68]

And your Lord inspired the bees: “Make ˹your˺ homes in the mountains, the trees, and in what people construct

Between the very start of this chapter, and this only word “Bee” of the Quran, there are also exactly 32 words .
